9 weeks

I am officially 9 weeks 1 day pregnant. This week was the most perfect week I have had in a long time. Monday I received a call from the only hospital willing to interview me as a new nurse saying I got the job. I was frantic and forgot to ask whether the position was for day shift, night shift, evening shift or if they work 8 or 12 hour shifts. Tuesday was a relaxing day spent at home in the pjs. Wednesday DH & I went to visit the RE. It was an amazing appointment. First of all it was with MY doctor, secondly it was with my FAV ultrasound tech. We got to see how much our little jelly bean has grown.

It now has a very big head, little arms that flex and rest on top of it's chest, a nice round belly, and cute little legs that flex. Our baby's heart was pumping away at 179 beats per minute. After the ultrasound tech got all our measurements my doctor said, "Let's see if we can see it wiggle." I was thinking yeah right, in all the books I read it never said you would be able to see bean move at all. Then my doctor asked me to cough deeply three times. Immediately after the third cough my little one wiggled all over the place. It's little arms wiggled, waving hi to mommy & daddy. It's little head was wiggling too. I was on cloud 9! Could a day like this get any better? YES! After seeing our ultrasound the doctor said we GRADUATED! The news was almost bitter sweet. I was sad to be saying goodbye to such an amazing medical staff, but excited to be moving on in my pregnancy. We scheduled our first appointment with the regular OB for Oct. 11. The RE also wants me to see a maternal-fetal medicine specialist to get a 4-D ultrasound around 11-14 weeks. DH & I spent the rest of the afternoon together shopping and relaxing! How could the rest of my week not be perfect when it started off the way it did?!
