No Champagne on NYE

We have a heartbeat! We also have a due date - July 23, 2007. The little bean looks really good, and is measuring about 9 weeks exactly. The heartrate was 171 bpm. We saw limb buds and even some movement today. I am beyond relieved.

I also got a really nice compliment today from the OB that I went to see in University City. I refer high-risk patients to this clinic, and the doc today said that they always welcomed my referrals as they were always appropriate. He said "If you call us after-hours about a patient, we know that she needs to be here." So very nice of him!

I am feeling all warm and fuzzy and happy now. We celebrated by taking CindyLou out for Mexican; she even ate salsa! I just wanted to give you a quick update and to thank all of you for all of your wonderful comments and support through all of my angst-ing. Your kindness has meant so much to me. Y'all are the best! More later, must. dictate. charts. :)

I'll offer you my official congratulations now - I'm always hesitant to do that before things are reasonably certain. I hope the harder symptoms subside soon so you can enjoy this pregnancy.

I love your writing style and look forward to reading more from you. Thanks!

That's WONDEFUL! I know how excited you are! You are exactly 1 month behind me! Hopefully you don't have all the challenges I do - but either way let's toast to lovely little bambinos in the summer!

Congrats on the good US. I remember looking at my daughter when she was 10 weeks and we joked that she looked like a turtle.

Yeah for you and the bean. Here's to a healthy 31 weeks,lol! That was awesome that your dr gave you such a high compliment. It is great that you were able to get a dr that you not only liked, trust, but also has the upmost respect for you. Congratulations!
