First Ultrasound

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Today we went for our first ultrasound to see the newest baby Ford.  Although it was a mere grain of rice at a minute 2.5mm, it was there.  The little flicker of a heartbeat was pounding at 160 beats per minute.  I have never been so relieved to see something so tiny become so real.

I was a tad bit nervous since my doctor's appointment on Monday.  Unlike last time I got pregnant, I wasn't so sure that I was pregnant this time.  My period had kind of started but then it tapered off.  It was only after my weird period that I thought, "you know, let's just take a test to be sure that you're not pregnant."  Well, clearly when I took the test it came up positive.  I was a bit surprised.  When I told my doctor that my period had kind of started and then stopped she mentioned that I might have just had a miscarriage.  My heart fell out of my chest!  At least that isn't true for now.

Keep your fingers crossed that this little grain of rice grows strong and healthy!
