Baby Brain: Ultrasound 8 Weeks 6 Days

I had another OBGYN appointment today with a whole battery of tests scheduled again. Today it was blood work, pap smear, physical exam and an ultrasound. We were there for two hours. I am so happy that my doctor is on top of things. It makes me feel comforted to know that she is making sure everything is being done to make sure that this pregnancy goes well. I still feel terrified about losing this baby. Every single day I try to keep the fear at bay. In fact right before my ultrasound I really started freaking out.

A few moments later we saw the heartbeat and the doctor proclaimed that everything is fine. The baby measured perfectly for how far along I am. The heart rate looked good and we even got to see the baby squiggle around a bit. The grin on my face in that moment, my hand clasped in my husbands, it was just perfect.

Right now everything is going perfectly. My exam went well. The baby looks good and I have only gained 2 pounds. I just need to wait a few days for the blood work results. As of now everyone is happy but I don't think I will start feeling relieved until after the 16 week. Hope to God for a healthy baby.
