Had My Physical Today.

So today was another big day for us and Teddy Graham, the big scary first physical and another ultrasound to check cervical length and make sure the little one is doing ok.

So I had LOTS of tests done today. Frist they start out with the easy stuff... weight, temp and blood pressure. Then I was swabbed for mycoplasma, ureaplasma, and group B strep. They looked at my cervical mucous under a microscope to make sure there was no abnormal bacteria, or other funky cells. I peed in a cup, had a pap smear and a breast exam. By the end of all of it I was tired and ready to put my clothes but not before getting a little peak into my uterus and making sure everything was still looking good. I know it is not normal to get this many ultrasounds but I am going to admit that after loosing Gabriel the way we did every time I see my baby on that screen doing well, it just takes some of the pressure off of my heart and mind, a little reassurance that everything is going as it should be.

My cervix looked perfect still right where it should be so YAY!

Plus I know I am the mom and everything, but guys... that baby is CUTE! The little heart was beating wonderfully and now my baby has arms and legs... I am soooo proud. Think of how much hard work it must of been to sprout those bad boys.... what a trooper I have :)

Is that not the cutest 9 week fetus you've ever seen?!? :D

We will be going back in two weeks to hear results from all my tests and meet with Dr again for a quick check up and ultrasound to re-check everything. So look for the next adorable picture during week 11.
