This is the little baby at this moment in time. He is happily nestled down in my pelvis wiggling like a worm. My German Dr. is super cool. I had the...pleasure of having both regular and vaginal ultrasounds today since baby was not coming out to play. Instead he chose to hide behind my pelvis (I just accidentally wrote penis...I dunno what I was thinking...luckily I caught it before posting) stealthy little guy. She did the little fold measurement test as that is standard, its the further testing that is not..I was a bit confused. Lol. He has a perfectly normal fold measurement. This doesn't mean that he 100% doesn't have Down's, but instead means his chances of having it are like 1 in a million.
We also got to do another blood draw for my first trimester screening. It was again a complete pain in the arse. The PA was going to draw and I warned her that last time the doc had to do it and I was a hard stick she took a look and ran in fear. So the doctor tried once in my arm and missed. Couldn't find anything resembling a vein in my left and ended up drawing from my hand. It hurt. A lot. Not going to lie. Totally not her fault that my veins are just as stealthy as my little person. The little guy was altogether quite cooperative though and we were done in about 30 minutes. Half of that time was spent trying to find blood.
I haven't thrown up in 4 days maybe? I think Monday was the last time which has me doing a little happy dance. I didn't gain much weight since the last visit, but the doctor didn't seem worried so either will I. Haha. 76.4 Kilo last time 76.5 this time. Then again I do have ample...insulation...to begin with. I also am starting to definately have a little belly. Still not enough to be dubbed pregnant...just chubby looking. Husband just rolls his eyes at me when I try to show him my buddha belly.
So that is all really for new news. Nothing stellar or amazing, just fun. We have looked at a couple more names we like, but we aren't going to talk about them lest a cousin pops up with a variation of one.
