Keep on Keeping on

We had our 10 week u/s this afternoon. Everything is measuring right where it should be. We got to do a jelly on the belly ultrasound today (less intimidating than "THE WAND") and I have to say that I am a little disappointed with the quality of the pictures:( The vaginal ultrasound's are so clear and the belly ones are so

I guess I shouldn't complain because after all, I got to see our little bun!! It's heartrate was beating away at 171 bpm and most exciting, we got to see it's arms and legs move. It kept lifting it's one arm up and down and the tech said it was waving at us, however, it looked more to me like it might have been rapping in utero...that's right, we have a rapping bun!!! I do feel somewhat sorry for it b/c it is going to be extremely hard to find a word that rhymes with uterus:)

On a more serious note, the tech did see a very small subchorionic hematoma...also known as a blood clot in the uterus. She did not seem concerned and when we spoke with the doctor he seemed to think that it was small and not concerning. He stated that most likely it will bleed itself out or it will be absorbed....I am hoping for the latter. He mentioned that if it bleeds itself out there could be some spotting...if this happens at least I will be prepared, but I am sure I would still freak out.

I do not have another ultrasound until 18 weeks and at that point we can find out the sex of our little bun!! WOO HOO!!! 8 weeks....seriously, let me see what I can do about that:):)

I will try to post the most recent pics later, they are not the best.

So glad to hear that things went well. I had a subchoreonic hemmorage with the twins and would love to talk with you about our experience! Have a great weekend!
