166 with little arms and legs!

A huge thank you to my sister N for the yummy rice krispie treats and scotcheroos she set me yesterday- they are delish!

This morning was our first OB appointment with Dr. R- we liked her so that was a relief!  The only bad part was waiting 40 minutes to see her.  She did an exam (good times) and totally made up for the wait by giving us a free ultrasound to hear the baby's heartbeat.  What an amazing sound!  The heart rate was 166 and we even saw the little arm and leg buds!  I feel a little more at ease after this appointment.  Dr. R was very reassuring and answered all of our questions without rushing us. 

Sine today wasn't an in depth u/s we go back to our RE tomorrow for another u/s to measure the baby and to make sure he thinks everything is going as it should. 

I am so thankful!!

  5. Congrats on the great ultrasound! How precious to be able to hear the heartbeat, I can imagine what a relief it is. Funny about the rice krispy treats.. I guess that is the craving of pregnancy since I seem to be craving a version of those too .... mmmmm. Good luck tomorrow, can't wait to hear the good news!
