Bun Bun lives

All was well at this morning’s ultrasound. Bun Bun has grown the right amount, is sporting a head (Sweet! Definitely going to need that later in life!), some fine lookin’ limb buds, and a heart beating away at an appropriate rate. I got to say goodbye to my RE. I told him how grateful we were and he was like, I’m a freaky little doctor man and don’t know how to deal with human emotions, despite the fact that I do it all damn day! He gave me a hug, patted my knee, and then patted the top of my head. I don’t know, man. But the end result is that I have to find a fucking OB. Holy shit.

There’s a long way to go, and I’m not going to take a single day for granted. But I have to confess that while part of me is still so very scared, a much larger part of me believes this is going to work out. Foolhardy? Perhaps. But I’m sick and tired of protecting my heart. I’m ready to live a little!

That’s how I feel today, anyway.

  1. Awesome news Bunny!! I'm so happy to hear that Bun Bun is growing and thriving. I echo your feelings about being sick and tired of protecting your heart and wanting to live a little. I'm in the same boat … but have days where the fear creeps back in and I feel i'm being too cocky… We're both so close to that magical 2nd trimester … the weeks can't go by fast enough!

    Fantastic news, Bunny!! I'm so glad little bun bun is growing well and all looks perfect. i think this is it :-)Try to enjoy!

  14. That is awesome. It's kind of crazy when you start seeing it actually looking very baby like — way less theoretically leading to a real live baby when it starts to look like one!I say Relax. Enjoy. Live a little and even buy a really comfy pair of pants with an elastic waist. I wish I had been a bit less of a basket case the first trimester, but I chalk that up to the fact that I am old and so many more things can go wrong at my age. But you should totally revel in this time. You totally deserve it.

  24. WHOOOO HOOOOO!!!!!!! you've graduated, I'm so proud of you and Bun Bun, when I graduated from my RE I allowed myself to buy a small toy at this very expensive toy store that I had to walk by every time I went to my REs office. It was kinda awesome.

  31. Sorry I've taken so long to say congrats – my no internet except at work thing makes it hard to post comments in a timely fashion. GREAT news! {pat on head}. And I honestly think it's going to work out too. You are past what seemed to be the danger zones in your other pregnancies – implantation. Now, at 9 weeks, you're all good (knock on wood for good measure).
