I'm So in LOVE!
As most of you know by now, my 12 wk ultrasound appointment went much better than I could have expected. This was the NT scan that I have been anxiously waiting for to make sure I wouldn't have a repeat disaster like last time. Well, it was nothing like it whatsoever. The measured thickness on his neck was 1.5 (those numbers ring preciously in my head), which is completely NORMAL and indicates no problems. The doctor was very pleased. The sonographer also said he is developing perfectly. Thats all I wanted to hear. The heartbeat was a wonderful 158 bpm. I know I have another big milestone to pass, the 20 wk mark. I can breathe a lot easier getting past this appointment, but getting past 20 weeks, finding out the sex and knowing all is well- that will be even more sweeter. It think by then I will really start kicking up my heels and feeling good!
Meanwhile, I have some ideas for a baby room already. I'm thinking khaki walls and a classic black and white look to the room. Apparently these colors are really good for new babies, which is funny since most wouldn't really classify them as "colors." My mom introduced me to this idea when she talked about some black curtains she spotted and at first I wasn't sure, but now I am completely on board! Mother knows best, righ? I can totally envision all of it in my head, which is a good thing. I am just not one of your typical blue/pink people.
