I dont have a picture to share but...

Today I got to see my baby's tiny tiny 11 week old legs kicking!! It was the cutest thing!!!

I went to see the specialist regarding the parvo virus which is a risk for baby. I was so glad I went. The doctor helped me understand it better & that it's not all doom and gloom.

He sent me off for an ultrasound straight away, and I will continue to have an ultrasound every 2 weeks for a while to monitor baby's growth & the amount of amniotic fluid around the baby.

He told me that "it looks encouraging"..... Music to my ears!! :D

The baby has a face!!! It has a really tiny button nose!! And its wee little feet were kicking around. Heart rate 160! So far completely on track for a normal pregnancy....

Will keep praying that it remains that way!! Praise the LORD!!!!!! :D

I hope all your u/s continue to show you your healthy bouncing off the walls baby.
IT must be a relief to have it explained for you.

Oh, yay! I'm so happy. Ultrasounds are so great but this one doubly so.

I was so glad to get your text, thankyou so much. I am glad you're getting regular ultrasounds to help put your mind at rest.

Like I said, I'm not having one til 19 weeks, so it's a bit scary when you get fearful (for no reason) that it's not moving or not growing or that perhaps there's more than one in there (which would be happy, as opposed to not-moving and not-kicking!!)
