We had our first ultrasound today. It wasn’t supposed to be until the 20th, but I did the triple screen maternal serum test (questionable though its results may be) and they wanted to confirm how far along we are. Apparently the test came back suggesting that I might not be as far along as we had thought. Sadly, this means I have to do the triple screen AGAIN.
As it turns out, I’m not, apparently. Not entirely suprising considering how weird September and October were for my cycle. At any rate, I’m about 15 weeks along, according to measurements from the ultrasound. Our technician was really nice and pointed things out to us, which was very cool. She printed out a few pictures for us, which I brought to work and scanned, and promptly posted up on flickr.
During the ultrasound I couldn’t help but think “well, I guess there’s really a baby in there…” Heh. Nothing like seeing a little moving creature to solidify things, I guess. Adam was really excited about it too.
Too early to tell whether it’s a boy or girl yet, I think. They didn’t ask if we wanted to know, anyhow.
