Happy Dance!

Happy Dances are cool for people my age, right?  We are so excited to get the confirmation of two, yes, two heartbeats.  Thank you Samoza Baby for Googling 150 bpm and finding it normal - I just looked at the numbers and knew they had to be fine because I had read your blog :-)  Now on to the next step - waiting for the next scan in two weeks.  I feel like I am on the start of a roller coaster ride in the dark.  Have you ever ridden a roller coaster in complete darkness?  Disney World's Space Mountain  is completely in the dark.  You buckle in and the coaster takes off slowly down a dark tube with strobe lights.  You can hear the clack, clack of the chains pulling you up into the darkness and then you reach the top of the hill.  How steep is it?  Well, you are about to find out as you plunge down unable to see anything - that is how I feel right now.  Excited and yet, terrified.

All is normal!  Yay!  Normal never sounded so good!

Our bubbles!  Apparently, our big bubbles.  Anyone else get a 6 week ultrasound where their bubbles measure almost 8 weeks?

  1. Congratulations! I guess if they say its normal that's fine and all good! I know early on sizings can be way out also they use measurements by Indian babies' average CRL , Dr shivani told me, so caucasian can come up bigger....I don't know which ethnicity your baby is though. Try enjoy the moment :D x

    1. Thanks - that makes me feel better. We are caucasian - and the ED is Indian. Brian is not a big guy either. We shall see.... as long as everything is boring and normal then we are happy!

    1. I would be a crying mess if I opened up a wave file to hear those little heartbeats. That is such a good idea - I wish they would do that!

  4. Woohoo! Congrats guys! Ours was only 138 bpm and everything has been running smoothly.

    Measuring 9 weeks?! Holy cow! You might have some future linebackers in there.
