9 Week Ultrasound

Sorry for posting so long after the fact. Yesterday was busy crazy day.


Our hoppers are happy and growing (STILL)!

We went in and he immediately found both heartbeats and then went on to measure each baby.  Our little hopper a was moving his/her arms all around and wiggling. At that moment it finally hit me and I looked at Al " holy shit I am really pregnant, these little humans are growing inside me". I think up until this point I was in some sort of denial about the whole thing. Seeing your baby on a screen moving and breathing it a unbelievable and overwhelming feeling. Although I am not a religious person, I am so thankful and beyond blessed for these two babies. How did I end up getting so lucky?

Here are measurements for babies:

Hopper "A" was measuring ahead at 9w4d and had a heart rate of 189 bpm.
Hopper "B" was measuring ahead at 9w1d and had a heart rate of 188 bpm. 


Dr. H said their little hearts will start to slow down after this week. I also asked if I could go in for one more u/s next Wednesday that way I only have to wait a week before seeing my new OB. Of course he agreed. I asked him about our miscarriage rate at 9 weeks. It of course is still there and he told me after all I have been through that it is something I will continue to worry about for a while. He is such a smart man. He assured me that the babies look wonderful. He also noticed the OB that I picked and mentioned how perfect of a doctor he would be for us. I guess he is big stuff around OU. I told him that he shouldn't have expected anything less from me :)

Without further waiting, here are the little hopppers at 9 weeks.

And my 9 week bump!
