6w3d - Home from the appointment!

And this one went great! We had the usual paperwork and health history to do, then I had my pap. This was the first time K got to experience such a wonderful time in a woman's life and he agreed that it is rather barbaric. Poor guy. (and poor me too!). After talking about my cramping that I've been having and the questionable cm that I didn't know if it was spotting or not, my doctor decided to do an ultrasound (yay!). Here is Baby Bee's first photo:
Aww, isn't he/she a cute blob? We were able to see the heartbeat flickering away at 134 bpm. Baby was measuring pretty much on target with my ovulation date. They moved my due date two days from July 9th to July 11th. I'm a little sad at losing those two days, but I am so happy that everything is looking good!

My next appointment is December 30th, at which I will have another u/s done for the neuchal translucency test. I'll be just over 12 weeks and am excited to see all the changes that baby goes under between now and then. K and I are still debating about when to tell the fam, but I feel more comfortable telling them now that we've seen the heartbeat, so for now we are tentatively set on Thanksgiving.
