NT Scan and I finally got a pic of the little bean! My biggest worry was that the ultrasound tech would not be able to find my baby because of all my extra fat on my stomach. I've heard so many stories in which the tech was completely rude to overweight patients. Us pregnant ladies get emotional much more easy! She was actually quite tactful when she just asked me to simply pull up on my belly.
Instantly, she found my little baby bean. Ryan sat close, in awe, with tears in his eyes, rubbing my hand as he watched the baby move and wriggle. The tech turned the screen towards me and I could definitely see that the baby was being super active. Oh, let me just admit, whenever they show me that monitor, I feel like a horrible mommy. I can never make out what is what. I figured it out once I studied the picture. ;)
FYI, the baby wasn't in the correct position for them to measure the nuchal fold, so I have to try again next week.
It still hasn't hit me that I'm going to be a mommy. I have the ultrasound pic in my wallet and it still doesn't feel real. I guess once I feel the baby kicking and moving around, that's when it will all feel real. Nevertheless, I'm so in love with this child. It's an overwhelming sensation and it just makes me so very happy. I can't imagine this feeling possibly getting stronger. My heart is just so full, if it burst, you'd probably see a million little butterflies.
Gosh, how do you moms contain yourself!?
