I Swallowed a Diamond Ring

I'm finding it hard to believe I'm pregnant. No morning sickness. No flutters. Not showing. I may have gained a pound or so (I first lost about 3). I am already wearing pregnancy jeans - but mainly because I can't stand anything tight-fitting on my stomach. Some people would suggest that I just wear pregnancy jeans forever after this (some people like me). They certainly are more comfortable! I'm not going to get rid of mine after the baby is born, that is for sure.

I told Kev last night that I just am in denial about this pregnancy. He looked at me with concern. "Well, you are taking hormone shots twice a week."

As if that is going to console me. I can see it now on a t-shirt: "All I got from this pregnancy is scar tissue in my butt."

I certainly don't mean to complain. I am THRILLED to not be nauseated. I'm thrilled to not be gaining weight yet. I'm happy to have some of the sleepies gone and my energy level back to somewhat normal. I'm glad to be looking forward to sleepless nights and projectile vomiting a warm bundle of joy. I guess it won't really start to sink in until I start to feel the baby move and see my belly expand some. I should be patient and enjoy these last few weeks of blissful ignorance. I could use them to get more unpacking done...

So... in honor of my needing to remind myself that I'm pregnant... I'm sharing the photo of my first glimpse of baby's heartbeat. The doctor said that I was at 5 weeks during this photo (which he affectionately called: "The Diamond Ring Stage"). I bet you can see why. The two little white spots where the "diamond" attaches to the "ring" are my baby's heart. The ring is the "yolk sack". During the ultrasound, that little spot was beating away. So I guess I really am pregnant... and I really didn't swallow a diamond ring. I do have a treasure in there that is waiting for me. Maybe I should learn to wait a little more patiently...

Such an amazing thing. Those ultrasounds are awesome. I feel for you on the hormone shots, but am glad the rest is going well. Maybe the good Lord just knew you had enough on your plate right now;))

Thanks for letting us see the baby bee. Won't be long until he/she is moving around. It always took me a long time to feel that flutter. My daughter wasn't a flutter, she was a puncher. Oh how she used to pain me which her little arms and elbows in there!

I've never seen the "diamond ring" ultrasound. How neat! Thank you for sharing this photo with us.
