9 weeks 2 DAYS!

The way I have felt this week, I needed this.

For the first time in my life, we have a bay measuring AHEAD on an ultrasound.

Yesterday was our 2nd ultrasound and I can’t even put into words how nervous I was. As I was pulling into the  hospital my stomach was in knots and I was preparing myself for  the worst news. But then, as I pulled into the parking lot, a yellow butterfly fluttered across and no lie….it put me at ease.

The ultrasound was AWESOME. I love the girls in my office, they seem to get just as excited as we do. We heard the heartbeat and listened to it for a little bit while Ashley (secretary OB) even ran in to hear  it.

Perfect heartbeat and a baby measuring 2 days AHEAD in growth. I couldn’t be a happier Mama. Dr F is pretty happy with how everything is progressing and we are hoping and praying the rest to stay like this.

Next ultrasound, June 11th. ((Sigh)) I CAN do this. It will give me something to look forward to vs. wallowing in my tears, right?

So I said I wouldn’t do any of these belly shots, but when I am the size I am so early I have to in order to prove it. Seriously I look 14 weeks pregnant, just where I was with Nolan. I don’t care how much weight I put on as long as I stay healthy and bring home a healthy baby.

There is always a little diet Nutrisystem that will take this baby weight away when all is said and done.

Now off to shoot a wedding of my dear friend Izzy today. I can’t wait to come back and share pictures!

Ashley,

What an awesome sign from Nolan. And I have a feeling your ultrasound on 6/11 will be a little gift from him showing you the healthy sibling he is helping to bring into the world. We found out we are expecting again this month -- the same month our first baby was supposed to have been born. I think it's the baby's way of ushering in a new chapter and completing the circle. Sending you strength, comfort, congratulations, and happy wishes for a smooth pregnancy.

Oh Ashley! You look absolutely beautiful! I wasn't sure if in your profile pic on fb showed that too but it surely does! You do look like you are farther. I am so jealous! I am 19 weeks and I don't have anything really. Same thing happened with Naomi. But I feel movement so I know shes in there. I am so happy to hear everything is going good! The ultrasound must have been so sweet. Congrats again Ashley! I love your belly pics! Cant wait to have some of mine soon!
