So the appointment Wednesday was just her. She said things looked good, but my ultrasound wasn't scheduled until Friday (yesterday). So yesterday I got to see this:
Yup. There's a baby in there!
So there you have it! We measured a week ahead of where we thought we were. So as of today I am 10 weeks 4 days. My due date was changed to March 21st. I told the US tech that made sense since my HCG levels were so high.
Last night we told my mother in law (who only cried twice) and today we'll share with my brother and sister in law. It's hard figuring out the order in which to tell people. I haven't told any of my friends (unless hairstylist counts), and I don't want my family to put anything on line (this is when I hate facebook), so I think this will be the week where we tell everyone.
We know a lot can still happen, but I also know that this is God's baby, and if I get to take care of it for 10 weeks or 70 years, it's still God's. It's hard to register that bad things can happen, but I also feel like I wasted a lot of my first pregnancy being worried, and I want to give that up this time. (any solutions to worrying? ha).
But there is our update. Now we're just trying to stay cool. It's supposed to be about 104 today. But I know some of you are having a hurricane head your way, so I've completely got the temperature in perspective. AND, might I add, that some fellow Southern Californians were so mean about the Earthquake in DC - making fun. BUT, can I just say that we get half an inch of rain and it becomes 'Storm watch, 2011' on the news. (I'm not making that up). If we had a hurricane or tropical storm heading toward up, you would think Jesus would be coming with it. So I'm hoping everyone stays safe and dry no matter where you are.
