I know this is absolutely horrible quality, but, see that little blob inside the little black thingy?? THAT'S OUR BABY!!!!! with a strong heartbeat of 166 might I add. Praise God! So needless to say, the appointment went well. Except for the fact that my doctor made a douche bag comment. Again. The very first thing he says when he comes into the exam room is "Hey, you still pregnant?" WOW. This guy just doesn't get it. I am a hormonal, sensitive pregnant woman. DO NOT MAKE THOSE COMMENTS TO ME! EVER AGAIN.
So yes, I am still in fact pregnant & fully intend on staying that way for a long time.
He performed the ultrasound on this 1940's machine, which didn't have sound & had horrible picture quality, as you can see. When he first put the wand on my belly, he said "oh, I think I see 2 sacs." SAY WHAAA?! Then he said "never mind, just one I think." Oh, that was reassuring. HAHA! For the record, he highly doubts it's twins.
As of yesterday, I was also measuring at exactly 8 weeks. squeee. That means I am that much closer to being out of this 1st trimester. I asked the doctor now that we have seen the heartbeat, if my chances of miscarriage are pretty much gone, but to my dismay, he said I am not out of the woods until 12 weeks; but that my chances are definitely lower. Thank God, since that is my hugest fear. But, let's not focus on that. Let's focus on the fact that I am pregnant with this huge miracle & am doing just fine :)
I go in next Tuesday for my very first prenatal appointment & cannot wait!
