The One About the Peanut!

Wow! Pregnancy sure has me tired, nauseous, and hard of breathing...but boy, is it ever amazing to think of the miracle happening inside of me!
I got a 'medically neccessary' ultrasound this morning, since we really weren't positive about the 'date of last cycle', and it's really important because of the fact that I'll have a C-section just a bit early because of the last one. (Thank goodness for modern medicine....Kennedy was a rush c-section, and needed emergency resscusitation!! Scary stuff!).

Anyway, depending on the gender of the new baby (which we'll find out at 20 weeks--I'm at nine right now), the baby'll come somewhere between the 13th and 20th of February as of now.

The actual due date is February 27th. Kennedy's due date, for the record, was February 26th....oops!!


=0 )

Anyway, here are some pics of our 'peanut'. Apparently, the round bit above the head is the yolk sac, and along the wall underneath, there is a light shadow of the placenta beginning to will be formed at around 12 weeks. The little bitty line that looks like it might be a leg is the umbilical cord. And we got to see the little heart beating, and, of course, hear it. Everything looks great! We're very excited!
