Growing Baby!

The Baby's head is on the left side. It's body looks tucked in a little. Underneath the baby is the umbilical cord.

The Potty Shot! ( Look above the ring, which is the yolk sac) It looks like it is sitting.

Jonathan and I got to see Baby Cox again today. The u/s today was so much fun because the Baby was moving all around. It is so strange to see something so small moving it's arms and legs. We were amazed. We also got a good peek at the umbilical cord today which was very visible. Then we got a "potty shot" . A potty shot is what the technician tries to get at the anatomy scan to determine the gender. Even though it's to early to tell it's neat seeing the baby's legs hanging down. Baby Cox is still measuring a little ahead at 9 weeks today. I'm actually on 8 weeks, 3 days. My progesterone level is still good. It was 49.2 today.

Jonathan and I will go next Wednesday for our last appt at ART. We will do u/s, blood work, and meet with Dr. Houserman. I also had to call and set up my first OB appt today! It will be the following Monday at 10:00. I'm a little nervous about the appt bc I have no idea what to expect. I've been going to ART for so long and I know every week what is going to happen and now I won't. From what I read I should have my first exam, do blood work, fill out paper work, listen to the heart beat, and hopefully get an ultrasound. I am so excited about actually getting to hear the heartbeat. I know it's going to be an amazing moment when we hear it for the first time. We have seen it flickering away several times which is so wonderful too, but I thinking hearing it will amazing.

Now it's time for me to post the pictures. I hope to have my scanner working (figured out ) again soon. These pictures aren't best quality bc of how I'm having to do them.
