In just over an hour, J and I will be nervously waiting while a technician waves a transducer across her jelly-covered belly. That is: it is time for our first ultrasound.
We are more than a little nervous, since J’s first meeting with her obstetrician did not result in the confirmation of a heart beat. But that was a couple of weeks ago. Now 11 weeks in, we should be able to get some sort of results today.
UPDATE: Everything is fine and on track. Heartbeat was about 165 bpm. And the little guy/girl was moving around. It was pretty neat.
For a moment there was a concern(?) that there were twins. Apparently there is a tendon or something in women that can cause the ultrasound to return false mirrored images. But upon closer look it was very clear that there was only one.
