first ultrasound

Whew!

We had our first appointment today and Baby Burke has a heartbeat! I could hardly believe it when I saw the little flicker on the screen. It sounded great, too! Baby measured at 8w2d, so two days ahead of schedule, but we're sticking with the 4/23 due date.

The bloodwork adventure was less fun, as I expected. I was a big baby and cried and it took two nurses and two sticks. They took six vials, so I left feeling lightheaded but I survived. I made Josh stay in the waiting room for that part because I didn't want him to see me having an anxiety attack like that. The nurse was sweet though and even hugged me when I left. Ha!

Now I guess it's time to start getting the word out. We're out of the danger zone and on our way!

I hope you can stop being so anxious now and enjoy this special time in your life! Don't make me be the optimistic one in our friendship; it's not a role I'm used to. :) You know that I am absolutely thrilled for you and Josh (and relieved the secret is out). Love you!!
