12 weeks

I had my 12 week appointment and ultrasound yesterday.  I am happy to report that we have a very bouncy little baby on our hands!  Pooh looked like he/she was having a party.  The cutest part was the trampoline bounce that little Pooh was doing every few minutes, baby was literally bouncing off the walls of my uterus :)  I love it!!!

The rest of the appt was uneventful.  Ultrasound looked great and we got good NT measurements, we are measuring right within the normal parameters.  We discussed more of the plan for the rest of the pregnancy.  I will be starting the weekly 17P shots in about 4 weeks and getting cervical length checks every 2 weeks from weeks 16-26.  I will also see an MFM at week 20.  

Even though I have been here before, I am still in awe of the miracle of pregnancy.  All of the changes that are taking place inside my body are simply amazing.  I feel so blessed to have this gift of life growing and thriving inside me.  A little human being that is inhabiting the same womb that was once Harper's home.  I feel that fact will always keep them connected in a very special way.  I love my mother-in-laws description, she said, "its amazing, like we are peaking into a sacred cave."


So even though my nerves got the better of me again and I was very wound up going into my appointment, I felt very confident and hopeful leaving the doctors office yesterday.  I feel like we have all of our bases covered and that we are going to do everything possible to bring little Pooh home.  

So...without further ado, here's sweet Pooh!  See those legs perched for a bounce?  Just precious.  As you can imagine we had a very smitten mommy and daddy walking around smiling ear to ear yesterday :)
