I was MOCKED, from the womb...

Mike and I tried for almost a year to get pregnant. We only had negative test after negative test. Then within a week of moving here to Arizona, I was finally pregnant. We are very excited, this is our first. Mike already has 2 kids from his first marriage.

Today was the big day...we were going to find out what I am having. So we went to the appointment...and everything looks good. It has 2 arms and legs, a heart with 4 chambers and all other vital organs. The baby was under my belly-button, which was causing a shadow over other important parts. So the tech let me go to the bathroom...yes, I got to relieve the pressure, and then we tired again.

Its little face, and lips are so perfectly formed. Then those little lips started to move. It smiled at us, and then started to LAUGH. The tech said she had only seen this a couple of times in her 18 years of doing this. So my precious child, with little crossed legs, mocked me from the womb.

Yes, I am so happy and relieved that everything looks good. And yes, I am sad that legs were crossed, I even cried. But, like Mike said, in his attempt to console me, "at least there are legs to cross."

mike is right but it still totally sucks that your little stinker wouldn't show you who they are. have another ultra sound that's what i say. i couldn't stand not knowing though, i'm a control freak.

but, yea for a baby with all it's parts. that is HUGE.

I am so glad you joined the blogging world! How was your trip to Utah? I'm so happy the baby is healthy. I am ticked for ya, that it decided to be modest at the very second you needed the little stinker to flash you! I agree with Stacy, go for another ultrasound, I too have to know... did someone say something about control freak??
