first ultrasound

And we have a baby! Well, sort of - we have a yolk sac and we sort of saw a baby but it was nearly impossible to get any sort of picture of it. They kept going back and forth between abdominal and vaginal u/s, and the tech finally decided I might be a week less far along than thought. The due date has tentatively been pushed back to Jan 2nd, but I'm going to wait until the next u/s in 2 weeks to see if that changes again before I worry about it. They got a measurement of 6w2d abdominally and 5w5d vaginally. I know for a fact that this baby can't be *too* terribly far behind the due date. I was in there forever! Other than that, all of my bloodwork for liver and kidney function came back great, which was good to hear! So far everything looks good. Can't wait to see an actual baby in 2 weeks :lol: Here's what we can see so far. I'm calling this one Speck LOL.

All the other stuff looks good. I was down to 158, blood pressure was I believe 124/76. Obviously I was wrong last time and the top number was in the 120s, not the 160s.

Glad to know your okay! hopefully the baby will start showing up in the ultrasound. Just be careful with morning sickness though. Here are some remedies that can help you get through the morning sickness week.
