We Saw Our Baby!

13 Jun

We saw our baby today. All we could see was a dark circle with something small at the right side of it, and a teeny-tiny flickering in that small something.

The round thing is the sac. The small something is the baby. The flickering – is the heart, beating.

Baby is tiny! 0.3 cm only. So I have no idea where do those online counters get off with pea-sized babies. I have never seen peas that small. Maybe lentils, but not peas.

One single tear ran down my cheek.

Hubby was excited and confused – didn’t understand much of what he was looking at, as he confessed later. Also said he thinks the baby has his nose and my ears, LOL 🙂

Next step – another ultrasound in 2 weeks on Wednesday. Once we hear “all is well” – time to graduate me to an ob-gyn, choose a hospital and such…

This became just a notch more believable today. And we have a picture 🙂

    Congrats Z! I remember how relieved I was to get that initial glimpse of our LO at six weeks. I’m very excited for you. I wish you a happy and healthy nine months chickie!

    I honestly don’t know how those techs see what they see. Until the 16th week or so, it just looks like a wiggling alien blob. But somehow they are great at it. Congrats!

      Well, the sac was clearly visible (as long as I didn’t move) – round and darker than the surrounding uterus matter 🙂

      But the baby inside – yeah, hard to understand. Even the tech couldn’t say where the head is – only the heart cause of its flickering 🙂

    Awesome. Congratulations! Praying you have a peaceful 2 weeks until you get to see your LO again.
