It's been awhile

It's been far too long since I've updated this blog, I've been so busy! We had our first appointment at 7 weeks and saw a beautiful baby with a heartbeat! I could hardly believe my eyes and ears. As soon as the OB started the ultrasound, she said "Heartbeat!" And my heart jumped, I felt so relieved and overjoyed. Here's our first ultrasound picture of the little pumpkin at 7 weeks.

The day after this amazing event, MS and I got on a plane to Orlando, where we have been living since March 2nd. He has a long project here for work, so we rented a condo and are staying until the end of April. I have been busy working on script consulting just like I do at home, and we've had some fun weekends exploring Disneyworld and Universal Orlando. Of course I can't go on all the rides but it's so worth it to keep our little pumpkin safe.

While here we had another appointment, at 11 weeks we had an NT scan. So far things still look great. The baby was growing on schedule, and was wiggling around like crazy on screen. I can't believe the little guy or girl is really in there growing and moving and getting bigger everyday.

This is our baby at 11 weeks:

I'm now 13 weeks and 4 days along and I still can't believe I've made it this far! I am so thankful everyday for this amazing gift, and MS is so excited about what he is sure is our daughter. Can't wait to get back home to California in two weeks. Florida has been fun but we are definitely homesick!
