Ultrasounds and sweetpeas

I completely forgot to update my blog on Sunday...I suck. We got to see the baby!!! My amazing doc ordered an ultrasound, mostly to put my mind at ease. Our bloodwork looked great and we were able to see a yolk sac and a small cluster of cells the tech said was probably our little chicken :o) We have to wait until the 25th to see it again. I will be 9 weeks and 4 days by then so we should get a great pic or two!!
