Our first look at Baby Crux

Tuesday we got our first glimpse of Baby Crux! It was so exciting! Since this is a high risk pregnancy, my doctor ordered a very early ultrasound. So, Edison and I headed in for the appointment. After peeing in a cup (seriously, can’t they think of a better option? Peeing in a cup is really hard!) and an exam, finally it was ultrasound time! Edison was convinced it was twins, but I was pretty confident there was only one baby. The ultrasound looked like this:



One little baby, measuring perfectly at 6 weeks 2 days! We even got to see it’s heartbeat :) It was wonderful.


Since it’s a high risk pregnancy, I’ll be monitored more closely by my doctor and will go in for more frequent visits. I go back in 3 weeks. The doctor gave us a huge packet, complete with magazines, a memory book, lots of information…very useful stuff. He also robbed me of about 4 tubes of blood, but these things happen. I did not faint before, during, or after the blood drawing process, however. (I’ve been known to do that in the past…) Just to be safe, though, Edison drove home. Overall, even though the exam was uncomfortable and I’d rather keep all my blood in my body, thank you very much, It was a great doctor visit because we were assured Baby looks great and everything is right on track. I’d gladly put up with as many uncomfortable visits as I need to in order to make sure I have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy, happy Baby Crux.
