My Sweet Pea

How full my heart is! A wonderful ultrasound. My baby is measuring perfectly for it's age and the wee little heart was beating like mad. My heart was bubbling over with relief and joy.

I keep staring at the pictures. I used to chuckle when people showed off their black and white blobs. MY blob is sooo much cuter and sweeter than any other blob I've ever seen.

Dr. A has released us into the wilds of OB-land. With a tag in my ear so I can come back someday and procreate again, maybe. It's not really sinking in yet that we no longer need a specialist. We're on our own out here in the normal world. I'm a normal pregnant lady.

What a journey we've had. Is it ending or just beginning? What once looked so bleak now seems so bright and full of .... everything.

AND just so you'll know I haven't gone completely maudlin, I'll tell you all that I was so mentally and emotionally overcome that I competely hicked out at the end of our appointment and said something like, "Oh Dr. A, if I had britches on right now I'd give you such a squeeze." An Elly Mae Clampett moment for sure. I'll bet he's laughing around the dinner table right now over that one.


  1. i've been stalking your blog all day long, looking for an update! And what a good update it is, britches and all!

    Yaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyy! I know your blob is the cutest one ever, well, at least until I get a look at my blob (in less than 10 days).

  2. So glad you got a nice little look!!!
    And I love the comment you gave him.

  3. So glad for the great news! Looks like it will be a wonderful weekend. Are you still on hold with that shopping trip or did I miss it? Looks like now is a good time to celebrate (and take pics of the goodies ;)

    Seriously though, I'm cheering over here. I knew your 'blob' would be in there hanging out and now I'm just glad its confirmed! yay!!
