Ultrasound

Hey everyone, went for my first ultrasound yesterday at 9 weeks. Everything looks perfect, two little arms, two little legs and a beautiful little face. Heartbeat 179bpm. Suddenly its so much more real knowing that bub is really there growing and healthy, rather than trusting two lines on a stick haha. I think I am in love already. We have decided NOT to find out the gender at our next scan and have that classic delivery room suprise, "its a .....!". Life is amazing.

I've only been able to have transabdominal ultrasounds late in pregnancy because of the position of my uterus. Transvaginal are very commonly used in early pregnancy, and a lot more comfortable than having a super full bladder lol

I had never heard of one until the tech told me she couldn't see anything with the transabdominal, I was like "you're gonna put what in my what now?!" Lol. But now that I work OB I've learned they're very common.
