Ultrasound Update

So I went to the clinic today. The first thing they did was a pregnancy test, which was (obviously) positive. Then they asked me a lot of questions and then brought me back into the ultrasound room.
They did the abdominal ultrasound first, and you could see something in there, but it was hard to see. So then they did the transvaginal one, and it was a lot clearer.

The baby looks like a little shrimp, and it has a yolk sac. It looks like maybe it has arms too, and you could tell that it came from an egg in my left ovary. They measured it, and I can't remember how big it was, but it measured smaller than I thought - 6 weeks 4 days. Which means it still looks like a shrimp, and I have twelve extra days to deal with morning sickness.

My new due date is October 19. I am excited for only one reason - I will finally be pregnant at the right time to paint my belly to look like a pumpkin.


  1. I just want to say I just saw your new blog, so I want to send you some cyber-support. You know, there really is so much time between the start and end of a pregnancy, even though it can at times seem to fly by. You've got 222 days. I bet when you get to the end, the exact things that motivated you to start this blog will seem to be from ages ago, and you will feel a whole world differently. I'll keep reading and offering supportive words as I am able.

  2. Congratulations on your pregnancy! I clicked over to your blog from your siggy on Mothering. I can't wait to read more!


  3. Congratulations! A baby blog to follow! Cool
