This afternoon we had our third and final ultrasound with our fertility clinic and it was fantastic.
Everyone was so happy to see us and genuinely excited for us. They don’t see a lot of people who get pregnant on the first try and the nurses were so happy I thought they were going to cry.
The doctor began the ultrasound and enlarged the screen so we could get an up close look at the little munchkin — and low and behold — it started dancing. Really! Wiggling it’s arms and legs all around. It was the most amazing thing I have ever seen. It brought tears to my eyes.
She suggested that Lauren video tape all the movement on her phone, but just as Lauren started filming, the little stinker froze. Totally stopped dancing and despite some wiggling and jiggling of the ultrasound tools, it remained calm and wouldn’t dance anymore for us. Stubborn!
The rest of the ultrasound was just as fascinating. We got to see the fingers, toes, eyeballs and mouth areas. They were so defined and clear — compared to the blip we saw last time. Baby Bunny’s heartbeat is strong as well — 170 beats per minute. We were so happy.
And the best part of the whole thing — I can stop taking the progesterone pills now!!! Yay! These horrible little pills that I take twice a day and cause nausea are no longer a part of my routine. Yippee!!
Other than that, it was a great day. Just finished up a bunch of homework and a quiz for school and hitting the sack soon. I keep fluctuating between insomnia and lethargy and this week is the latter.
