12w2d all is well

So we go in and do the genetic counseling thing again- and, it turns out, it was good to do since we decided on sequential screening.
Then, ultrasound.
I was so nervous this morning I did not eat, could not swallow, was aware only of my pounding heart and fluttery insides. Felt like crap, like crying, like going back to bed.
But, in we go.
The tech? the one, of course, from our miscarriage.
Ah.

So, I did the right thing, the best thing, told her so- (she had recognized us)-- and asked for the fastest possible positive feedback.
Moving! She said, and we cried.

All in all, it was the best possible ultrasound
everything looks GREAT
(fingers! face! blessed heartbeat!)

dead baby dreams last night so I was a wreck.

NT 1.2mm which is awesome.
Baby measuring 13w 1d, little over achiever, and moving all over the place.
Magical
wonderment

we are in awe.

I came out at work. So now they know everything. And maybe more important,
now I can breathe.

I'll write more wedding stuff soon, but wanted to give you this happy (relieved) update.

So much happy news to celebrate. I am looking forward to your continued pregnancy posts (movement! hiccups! discernible (from the outside) body parts!).

Also looking forward to wedding info. Fun!

Jem said...

This is such a huge hurdle! Announcments at work, screening.

Yes, breath. It's like you're on a big hike and have reached a plateau and can pause to enjoy the sun on your face, the sweat trickle down your back, and grab your man's hand and point at the gorgeous vista.

Enjoy it!

Elizabeth said...

Dear Kate -- so much happiness my heart bursts for you. A married woman, fetched up pregnant as they say in the south. Your photo was beautiful.

Thank you, so much, for your kind thoughts and for keeping up through the Liam blog. I won't lie, things have been awful and they're likely to get worse before they can even start to get better, but, you know, the bad stuff isn't the only stuff of each day, and it's all only temporary anyway. Your good news reminds me how things do change, and happiness circles back. Thank you. With love,
Elizabeth

Kate said...
