We went to the doc. yesterday for a check up. I am 10 weeks now. the nurse said at first that we were not going to be able to hear a heartbeat or have an ultrasound yet cause I wasn't far enough along. I was sad. And to say the least I was somewhat nervous and just needed to know that everything was OK because I had a miscarriage last time at 10 weeks. So, Dr. Tindall came in and talked to us and asked how I was. And one of the first things he said without me even asking is that he wanted to see in the ultrasound tech could do one on me today. I was so relieved! I almost yelled Yes! So, we went in and the lady was able to do a regular ultrasound since I was still pretty skinny and didn't have a lot to go through. We heard the heart beat for a few seconds and that was very relieving. The first two pics are with the regular ultrasound and you can see the cord and an arm and leg. WE did this one for a while. Then she switched to a 3D4D one and those are the next 2 pics. You can see so much better with those. The first of those is when we saw the baby moving its legs really fast. It must have a lot of energy. We don't have pics of this, but at one time it was trying to hide its face and looked almost shy. then the last one was taken right after the Tech said it did the Heisman. So of course Jay said " I knew it was a boy!" I just laughed. So it was a great night and we were both very excited. The Tech. also said that it looks a little bigger than 10 weeks, but just by a few days.
So, we decided to dress up as Lobo Football fans. We didn't really want to buy anything to be something else and we had Lobo stuff to decorate our truck for the Trunk or Treat. It was fun but our candy was gone in 15 min. or less. So we know for next time to get more. There were a lot of kids there that were not in our ward, so that made a difference in candy. Oh well! Jay and I had fun.
