Alein sighting!!!

We went for our second OB appointment yesterday. Now, I'm not gonna lie. Before we went, I prayed that the baby was perfectly healthy, but that they wouldn't be able to find the heartbeat with the doppler, so they would have to do a sonogram. I just REALLLLY wanted to see this baby and get one of those cute, cheesy sonogram pictures that everyone likes to show off. So I prayed!

After we checked in, we had to wait about 45 minutes to be seen, which is fine because I work for a doctor, so I TOTALLY understand how people get behind (especially specialists). My husband, however, does not have that understanding. He had gotten to the appointment early (which in my lifetime experience has NEVER paid off. I ALWAYS try to get there on time, never early), so he was there for over an hour before we finally got to see the doctor. Poor guy--AND I made him sit with purse while I went to the bathroom 3 times before they finally called my name. He hates purse sitting.

We got back in the room and they did the usual--pee test, blood pressure, etc. Then we met Dr. Lowden (last time we saw the PA) and I really like Dr. Lowden a lot. She's not real chatty, but she's very nice. Then she looked for the heartbeat for like, 20 minutes. I was totally relaxed because hey, I knew this was my prayer being answered. Finally, she gave up and said, "Let me go fire up the sono machine."


So they take us back to the sono room where the nurse comes in to prep the machine and she says, "So they're doing this intravaginally, right?" I was like, "Uhhhh........the doctor didn't say." So she prepares the wand (which looks interestingly enough like male anatomy) by putting a rubber protector on it (which looks interestingly like a condom) and Nick just starts laughing. Awesome. I'm sitting there with no pants on, getting ready to get invaded and my husband is laughing. But it all stopped when we got to see our sweet baby's heartbeat. We both got a little teary eyed and it was just SO amazing!! There is a HUMAN LIFE inside of me!!! And it looks JUST like an alien!! But it's the cutest little alien baby I've ever seen. And it was a relief to know that everything is great. So we'll keep you updated!
