Sneak peek

Yesterday I was at work & had some time to take a little "sneak peek" at Baby T with our portable US machine. It doesn't produce the best images since it is a cardiac ultrasound machine - or maybe it could be that the operator is trying to press a probe into her belly with her right hand while trying to record the image on her phone with the left hand?!? LOL

Regardless, I think you can get a good idea that there is definitely a baby in there :) The image of Baby T fades in & out due to the fact that I was trying to press hard with the probe & move it around while trying to get a good image - not the easiest thing to do.

When you watch it, you will see that Baby T is hanging out, upside down at the top of my uterus. Head is on the right, legs kicking & moving around on the left, arms waving around in the bottom middle & you can see it's little heart beating in the middle above the arms.

Pretty amazing, huh? 

We have our 1st trimester screening ultrasound this Friday, July 27th. This is the ultrasound where they identify risk for specific chromosomal abnormalities like Down Syndrome, Trisomy-21 & Trisomy-18. I am a bit nervous about this one but am trying to convince myself it is out of my control what the results will be & I have to trust in the "big man upstairs" that everything will turn out ok. If not, I guess we cross that bridge when we get there.

Coming up...12 week update :)
