So here is our 10wk ultrasound that we went to on 6/12. James and I were able to hear our baby's heart beat, that was very cool! It makes a loud swshhing noise at about 160 beats per min, very normal! It sounds like swwiisshhh, swwiisshhhh. In the picture you can see how much the baby has grown since the last picture. You can actually see the baby's head, body and a little bit of the arms and legs. The white object near the head is not a nose as my mother- and father-in-law thought, it is the baby's hand waving at us. Towards the bottom (or the right side of the picture) is the baby's foot sticking up. The doctor was also able to see the red and blue blood (oxygenated and deoxygenated) going through the umbilical cord up through the placenta, then he was able to have us see the baby's circulatory system where we could see the blood going from the umbilical cord into the baby and up and down "its" body-head-feet. I still have been feeling just great. People ask me, "How are you feeling?" which is funny to me because I don't feel any different than when I wasn't pregnant, so it sometimes throws me off gaurd, because I want to say, "Did you hear I wasn't feeling good or something, or should I not be feeling good?" But I know that people are just caring and concerned and want me to be feeling great, which I am! I have another appt. in 4wks, which will bring me to 14wks at that point.
