The Beat Goes On

Tuesday finally arrived and we got another peek at our little defenseman [#3]. I thought it still looked like a blob, but Clay believed it was an improvement over last time.

He's measuring right on schedule for 12 weeks at 52mm and the heartbeat was 156bpm.

And just for the record, here is the scan from last time.

Am I breathing easier? A little bit. I will still feel better when we are halfway down the road [isn't it always another milestone?], but the smile is back on my face and all I can do is keep having faith.

I am loving my new OB. I thought I could never replace my favorite Dr. R, but Dr. S really rocks. He was in a delivery today and could not meet with me, but he still called at 730 tonight to make sure there weren't any questions that I needed answering. He has cleared me for prenatal yoga and light workouts, so I am going to try to get back to the gym on a regular basis. I want to make sure that I am labor ready come 28 weeks from now.

This week will be my last week on vaginal suppositories--thank goodness. No one should stick that much stuff up them. I was very happy to be done with all my intramuscular shots.

Next up will be the Nuchal Fold scan on Friday the 29th.


  1. Great news! Thanks for posting the photo. It looks like #3 was even sucking his thumb? That's a good sign!
