nightmares be gone!

>> Tuesday, June 2, 2009

Yesterday we had our mid-pregnancy ultrasound.

For a few weeks, I've had these vivid nightmares that something is wrong with the baby. I'll get all worried in my sleep, just certain that it's not going to be okay. I've been told that lots of first time moms feel this way, but it didn't do much to comfort me. Lots of moms have nausea too, but that hasn't made mine go away. Go figure.

But, just like Marius has reassured me countless times - everything is fine. Baby A is healthy and strong, and everything looks great. I thought we were just going in to find out the gender. I had no idea they'd do all these other checks - but it made me feel good that they did.
Heart - all 4 chambers, pumping away at 144 bpm
Stomach and bladder - both full of fluid as they should be
Kidneys - not 1, not 3, just the 2 that are supposed to be there
Brain - both hemispheres present and accounted for (thank God!)

They also checked for things like cleft palate and Down syndrome indicators - and all is normal. I slept so well last night, with so much anxiety melted away into peace. It felt nice.

Oh yes, and IT'S A BOY!
