Peeking In

I had an early appointment this morning to see my OB’s backup Doctor (since my OB is out on vacation). I hit the second trimester and my blood pressure has to be watched more carefully, so this was a 2 week appointment, not the usual 4 week one. The tweaks to my BP meds though seemed to have worked even if the side effects blow (they leave me very tired overall). I went through this with Walker so I have a good idea of how it will make me feel. Anyhow, the appointment as I mentioned went well and my BP reading was excellent.

The baby is sitting pretty deep in me so picking up the Doppler heartbeat isn’t so easy so I got another ultrasound today (which outside of healthy children is the only bonus to being labeled high risk). The baby was very active and moved all around, showing its face, tummy and backside, little waves of the arms and all πŸ™‚ I melt every time I get an ultrasound, a window into my life.

Little backside view:

You can see the legs, torso, head and even little arms πŸ™‚

Love hearing the heartbeat!




  1. That’s so cool! What a little sweet pea!

  2. Oh my goodness, I haven’t been on backpacker recently (I’ve basically been spending my extra time at Backpacker Light these days), and missed that you were pregnant! Congrats! That’s so exciting!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
