since Bing Crosby tap danced with Danny fucking Kay!

And let me be the first to say, it’s about fucking time.

I don’t even know where to start.

First off, he’s still in there.

He’s measuring exactly 9 weeks, and is an inch long.

His heart beat was a whopping 178 beats per minute-a nice increase over the 138 at 6.5 weeks.

And the best part???

He has a completely OPAQUE and ROUND head because get this…. it is full of brain!!!  OMG.  Can this really be happening-to me??  In my uterus???

Our ultrasound was long enough and detailed enough that we actually even got to see him moving on the screen for a minute or so with a case of the hiccups.

While I still am paranoid that my body will screw this up, I think I finally feel reassured enough right now to actually enjoy the next 4.5 days and hopefully get some much needed restful sleep.

We meet with a Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialist in Boston on Tuesday at 9am for a consultation to get a professionals opinion on if we should be labeled and monitored as high risk for the duration of this pregnancy, to put together our monitoring plan from here on out so that there are no more horrible gaps like what I just endured, to set up the testing schedule as well as the tapering plan for the Steroids and Progesterone that I’m still on-oh and we also get another detailed look at this little guy!  For those who know me personally, you know what kind of joy an appointment of this nature brings me as it involves my 2 very favorite things EVER… planning and seeing my little man.

After the 14 day stretch I just did, and the progress this little man has made, living the next 4.5 days will be a very enjoyable piece of cake.

OMG I’m pregnant and I’m going to tell my dad!

Merry, Merry, Merry!
