<Pointing at herself with thumbs up> THIS GAL!
We got to see DocO today and he was grinning from ear to ear when he saw us in the lobby and gave me two thumbs up. When he arrived in the ultrasound room, he asked me how I was doing and I explained I was nervous due to my loss of symptoms. He looked a little concerned and gently said, “You don’t have to be miserable in order to be pregnant. Let’s have a look.” The date with Wanda had begun. First thing he zoomed in on one and pointed and said “there’s the heartbeat” then he immediately swung around the wand to find the other one and point out the heartbeat, “and that looks good too.” I love that he did that for me. He allayed my fears first thing and then went to do his meticulous measuring. DocO is a very compassionate man and I am so lucky to have been taken care of by him and all the other wonderful people at the practice. The measurements were spot on, these little guys tripled in size in 2 weeks (Wow!). The heartbeats were at 178 and 180 bpm. I am so very happy about all of these good indicators. Go little monsters!
Their duck monster and frog monster likeness has morphed into more shrimp-like beings that look the same. You could see their little arms and feet waving, which was really cool. I got a CD with the images and videos that are fun to watch. There are much monster gesturing and wild party dancing moves going on in there. I think the conversation in the womb must have been something like this…
Most importantly MrBeep was laughing while he watched and was smiling at me and squeezing my hand. I got lots and lots of hugs and kisses for a job well done. I’m so excited, I can’t believe I have to get an OB/GYN now. I have “graduated” from the RE office. Yikes. I’m off to make a bunch of phone calls.
So far so good. Mommy loves you very much and keep waving and monster mashing.
