Today we had our first appointment with the doctor. I didn't know what to expect except blood tests. Even though I tried not to get excited, I was so ecstatic to be there I just kept smiling and laughing at everything the nurse said like some idiot. I even bravely asked her if she needed my urine because if not, I needed to get rid of it. She was so cute and friendly. She probably gets first time nit-wits like us all the time. But that would be the fun part of the job, assisting new and excited parents. Anyway, he did an ultrasound and as soon as it started up he said, "Aw, only one." PHEW!! I was really nervous twins were in the future because I'm already showing a little bit. Everyone says you can't tell, but I can and so can Cory. He prodded around a little and we got to see his little heart beating and tears instantly came to my eyes. Then he started moving around and we even got to see him wave "at us" (the nurse gasped and said "Look! He's waving at mommy and daddy!") and he kicked his legs and squirmed around a little bit. It was so exciting!! I just stared in awe at the little guy. It was such a huge relief to see that there's really something in there and so far, it has all it's parts and looks healthy and normal. Here are the photos we got:
Here's the side view. You can see his arm and legs and this is where the heart beat was.
