Our First Glimpse Of Little Muppet!

Our First Glimpse Of Little Muppet!

We went for our first ultrasound the other day and I can’t even begin to share how amazing that experience was!

Being a first time mom, I obviously over-react to every little twinge and cramp I feel. Somedays I even wondered if I was still pregnant, I mean, when you can’t see something, you start to wonder if it’s even there! So going in for my ultrasound was just what the doctored ordered…literally. :)

I was instructed to drink a whole bunch of water, how much I am not really sure, but I decided that 2 bottles of water should do it. I started drinking my first bottle about a half hour before we were to leave for the hospital, which of course resulted in me needing to pee right before we went out the door. I decided to quickly top off my second bottle to make up for the water I …uh…wasted. We got in the car, and I pulled out my second bottle and started to drink. As soon as we pulled into the parking lot at the hospital, I exclaimed to my husband, “I gotta pee!!” We checked in, and then I ran to the bathroom…*sigh* Another wasted bottle of water. I then filled up my bottle and as I filled out my paperwork, I chugged that water down like it was going out of style but on sale for 75% off. (Who can resist a deal like that?) ;)

The sonographer approached me and asked, “Do you have a full bladder?”, to which I responded, “…I did…But I had to pee super bad!” Apparently she felt I was ‘hydrated’ enough anyways, so it was all good. :)

My husband wasn’t able to go into the room with me at first, as the sonographer wanted to do all the measurements and stuff before sharing with us, so I waited until he was invited back into the room to hear whatever news she had for us. I have never been so nervous in my life! At one point, I was like, “Can she not find the baby?!” Thankfully, that was not the case. She called Chris into the room, and then showed us the most magical thing we have ever seen, our little baby! When it first came onto the screen, both of happily exclaimed, “It’s a baby!” It was so adorable…yes, I am going to be one of those mothers. It was moving around, kicking it’s little legs, and at one point, it’s arm and hand were so clear we could count the fingers! Watching it’s little heartbeat was also amazing. It fluttered around in it’s chest like a little bird’s. I kept apologizing to it as I laughed, as it made it jump around in my belly. I still can’t believe that a little person is kicking up a storm inside me and I can’t even feel it! It’s so crazy, but having the ultrasound really made everything feel real for the first time. Seeing Chris’ face light up as soon as he saw his Little Muppet on the screen is something I will carry with me forever.

Little Muppet is 11 weeks 6 days and is about the size of a large plum now. It is almost fully formed. Soon it’s hands will form into little fists, and one day I am sure that I will feel them flailing around in my tummy. Right now, it’s taking advantage of all the room I’ve got, and is preforming either water ballet, or some form of karate, as it is kicking and squirming all around.

Here is my belly at 11 weeks 6 days. I am definitely starting to show, though I just look like I let myself go instead of looking pregnant. I find my tummy hangs over my pants, and we all know how sexy that can be. People probably think I’m a frequent diner at McDonalds, which is totally the opposite, as I find my hunger has diminished. This little baby doesn’t want me to eat, though I have to so I can push through my nausea. :P  I go about my days wearing baggier shirts and yoga pants. They hide the flab and are very comfortable.
