It's a good day today!

The heartrate has increased to 125 bpm and the crown rump length has increased to over 1 cm, aprox. 11 mm! WEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Yes, folks we have a pregnancy, and definitely NOT a puppy in there.

Total sigh of relief...until a few days before next Tuesday. Sometimes I think I live from ultrasound to ultrasound. Luckily this time I got the chance to find everything out live because Dr.J. had written them a note telling them too. And I insisted on having Mr.Cotta right there with me from the get go. Funny thing about some ultrasound labs in this town, they refuse to let the Dads in for the whole scan, only the ending part, even though Ministry of Health regulations say that women shall be allowed a support person of their choice at every stage of the maternity experience. But not every clinic does, it's almost like they are so desperate to get you alone and control the entire experience, they can't understand why it would be reassuring, or why any woman might need a friend? Hospitals let partners in, as do high risk OBs, and fertility clinics, but not all free-standing US clinics. Weird...anyway, I'm a bit of a pain in the rear that way, as you might have guessed, so I get what I want.

But this was great, and I have a picture, and now I just need to do something celebratory. I know it's only one ultrasound and it's only one little step. Heck, the universe could fall in tomorrow....but for today, I am going to be happy for the good things in life!

  12. Great news - I'm just sorry they had to have you worried the whole week... I guess that's one way in which not knowing the heartrate means you're better off (as I mentioned before, they never tell you the heartrate until you're about 6 months pregnant here).

  18. I found your blog through "Certainly not cool enough to blog" and wanted to offer my CONGRATULATIONS! (And I think it's ridiculous that Mr. Cotty (or any hubby/partner/etc) be allowed in for an ultrasound or any other part of the maternity process)!
