Sonogram One

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.

  1. Only 1? You know my mother was a twin and she had twin siblings. Also her grandmother had 2 sets of twins and a set of triplets (this was way before IVF!). Glad to hear everything is going well.
