breathing…like never before

our diagnostic ultrasound was today.
apparently all is well.  i once again was blessed to feel that rush of relief wash over me. 

i don’t have numeric or specific details, but hearing "everything is fine" is enough for me right now.
i’m so happy.  so lucky.  so blessed.  so relieved. 

we saw baby’s spine in all of it’s glory (that was really cool), baby brain (smart baby, i’m sure of it), baby heart, baby legs, arms, toes….

it took a long time to do the scan because apparently things were difficult to measure for a variety of non-worrisome reasons such as my strong stomach muscles (!) and possibly the location of the placenta at the front of my uterus.   poor Husband had to wait outside while the tech was taking the measurements though so began to worry that something was wrong.  the tech also had to send in a second tech in to have a look at the kidneys…but tech no. 2 located them right away and said they were just fine.  i now feel a bit bruised from all of the poking and prodding from the probe, but i don’t care.  i told her to do what she needed to do in order to get the measurements.

i’m just going to bask in my good fortune today.  i have so much to be thankful for.

AND to top it all off, perhaps Wee is a bit pissed off about all of the pushing and prodding because i would swear that i’m feeling flutters in there.   flutters that finally don’t feel like gas…

what a day. 
we are just so so lucky and blessed.  it’s simply amazing.

YAY! I’m so glad everything is going well for you all. My ultrasound was pretty bruising as well. At least the doctor didn’t tell you how uncooperative your child was! ;-)

Oh, that sounds so good! I’m glad to hear that “everything is fine”! I do have a little news for you. Since you’ve been so supportive of my heartache at not being able to conceive, I thought you should know…I’m finally pregnant! We are feeling very blessed also. I wrote a little about it on my blog! Have an awesome weekend!
