Well, today was the day I have been waiting the last 6ish weeks for. The first ultrasound for baby Walters number 2!! I am due December 14th – so with not even a 14 month gap, life is going to be crazy crazy in this house next year! We are nothing but excited though. Ok, a healthy dose of fear mixed in too, but all will work out!
We got to see little bean’s heart beat today and all is well and as it should be for 10weeks +6days. I am quite shocked actually at the accuracy of the Clear Blue Digital tests I took that dated the pregnancy around 5 weeks at the time – it had me guessing my due date was around the 15th, so it was spot on!
Baby was too small for the tests that I had scheduled for today (I could have been up to 13 weeks but obviously those dates were unreliable!) so I have to go back in 2 weeks time for another ultrasound which I do not mind at all! Baby should be big enough then that we will actually be able to see more, but we could actually see quite a bit this time, you could tell where head was and see little heart beating and tell there were 4 limbs, just so tiny… 40mm in length so no wonder it doesn’t show up very well on a scan yet! Can’t wait for June 7!
It was a huge difference from the first scan with Elliot though, holy cow! With him, as soon as they put the wand to my belly is was like “OH, HELLO BABY!!” But he was already 21 weeks along, so he was much much bigger! Interesting to actually get to see this one while so tiny and experience pregnancy from the beginning this time lol! You mean I actually have to wait 9 months to have this baby?!? 😦
Well, in other news – we stopped in at baby clinic this morning on the way to the hospital and had Elliot weighed. He tipped the scale ad 22lb 6oz and had jumped up from his 91st percentile line to the 98th. It’s not really a big deal, just time to cut back on the milk a bit more than we had been doing but they were happy with him and how he is doing. He definitely loves his food! Which is good, just Mom needs to give him less milk now! 🙂
So anyways, that’s the latest news from the Walters household. Exciting times indeed!
