While the ultrasound didn’t get me into the maternal mode, this shirt that my sweet, sister-in-law, Susan, sent me totally did. I wore it out to do a bunch of shopping. I got tons of congrats and “I LOVE THAT SHIRT!” comments. Thanks, Susan! You made me proud to be pregnant for the first time! You have no idea how much that means to me.
Sean and I had our first ultrasound yesterday. We found out that we were not at ten weeks, like we had been thinking, but at 14 weeks!!! Which, as my cousin, Erin, put it, “That was an easy month! Whew!!!”
I was in awe of how big it is and how much it moves, although I can’t feel it at all. Our lady doing it was very sweet, talking us through each angle. She was going to have me go pee in hopes of the baby turning over so we could get better profile shots. Right before she was going to have me go, I passed some gas. Guess what? The baby rolled over. The ultrasound tech kept saying, “How convenient that the baby just started turning.” I only told Sean about it after we got out. I did not get super maternal… although I wasn’t looking at it in a “parasite” type of way, so that’s a step in the right direction!
As for how Sean did, I don’t think he cried, but he was totally googlie eyed. When he did the math and realized being at 14 weeks meant we would have a baby in about five and a half months, he almost threw up on the floor. For real. He was all gaggy. Who said men don’t have pregnancy symptoms? Our due date is now February 7th.
Here are the pictures!
