Baby V is hiding...

Today we had our regular monthly appointment with Dr. E. M (IF) came to the appoinment with lots of questions about the second trimester screenings. We had some good dialog about the benefits and downside to the Quad screen, and it was agreed that I will come back and have the quad screen done later in the week.

Next up was finding baby V's heartbeat .. and the little stinker was hiding. Dr. E searched first with one doppler and then a second doppler and was unable to find the heartbeat...this is always scary! Both M and I were thinking "oh no"...and I was especially thinking that it had to be there as I felt her move earlier today.

Well as Dr. E said .."this always happens at the end of the day"...and then she was off to turn on the ultrasound machine. Sure enough Baby V was doing just fine but laying high in my belly! We could all breathe more easily after seing and hearing Baby V!

Now M&M have decisions to make about a possible amnio...good luck!

I felt some flutters today...I am sure it was the baby and although it is a little early, I am pretty sure it was baby V making her presence! How exciting..I wish it was not to late to call M& to send an email:-)

Mommy - where is the string?...

I have been looking at pictures online with my children to show them how the baby is developing and growing....Sebastian is really interested in pictures of him as a baby as well and very observant. So the other day he was looking at me, and around me, and up and I asked what he was looking for? He was looking for the string because he wanted to pull it!! I asked what string - well it was the baby string ofcourse!! The umbillical cord - he was so funny...!
