Pregnancy 101: First Sighting

Yesterday I had my first prenatal appointment. And it's a official. I'm pregnant. Just in case you were worried about it. I'm 7 weeks and 1 day. Nugget Wilder is due to join the world approximately around February 9, 2010. Lordy that seems forever away.

I was pretty nervous going in. Hubby and Momma both went with me. It was nice to have both there. Hubby because well, he's partially to blame for my current state and Momma because she's lived through this three times already.

My doctor was ok. Not awesome. It kind of felt like when I was engaged and planning my wedding. She has obviously delivered 1000 babies and been around 1000 of pregnant ladies but this is MY FIRST. And probably my ONLY. So please don't treat it as ordinary. Because it is in no way ordinary for me. But we have really good insurance and we don't pay too much for it, so I'm not going to complain too much. I am going to look into seeing a midwife though. So we will see if that goes better.

The coolest moment of course came when they did my ultrasound (INTERNAL thankyouverymuch. HELLO DOCTOR.). I was just laying there and suddenly there was the Nugget Wilder. Right there. We could see it's little body. I teared up and so did Hubby. Momma took pictures. Wow. It's really in there.

So now we have baby's first picture. Freaking amazing.

Excuse me, but we are going to need some text and arrows to help us out here. I don't know what end is up, but from here, I see a little white woodpecker inside a black peanut.

See it? Beak is on the right, tiny bird feet at the bottom?

I think a midwife is a great idea. You'll get more personalized attention.

oh so incredible huh? I just about lost it for our first ultrasound! How was hubby?

Hubby got teary-eyed too. He brought it up again later and said he thought it was "REALLY COOL" to be able to see it. :-)
