Cinco's weekly status report - Updated

I am just in awe of how everything is going this time for us. For the last two appointments J and I have seen development in Cinco that we've never seen before. It truly has been amazing.

I am happy to say that it was another great appointment - everything measuring right on time. Cinco is still measuring about a day ahead of me. Heartbeat was great - 178. We saw so much development this week - we saw the brain, the arm and leg buds, and the umbilical cord. Cinco was waving to us! The little arm buds were moving almost the whole time!!

Dr. A tried to record some images and the heartbeat for us so we could put the files on a USB drive. That took quite awhile to figure out! We never did figure out how to get the files on the drive, so Dr. A is going to have his IT guy figure it out. We ended up taking almost 45 minutes with Dr. A this morning - both J and I started to feel guilty that there so  many patients waiting because of the extra time he took with us. I really appreciated it though! We have really developed a great relationship with him.

Hope Y'all have a Fantastic Friday!

Update: I cannot believe I forgot to give you the funny story from this morning!! So J and I got shown to our room, given the instructions (which we recited with the tech) and got ready to go. Well, I usually hand J my bag as I head to the restroom; this time, I decided to put it down first and then go. When I was in the bathroom I noticed my shirt was wet and could not figure out for the life of me what happened. I get back to the room and J said "Have some problems in there?" I thought he was referring to it taking me longer than normal, so I told him I had to get a new roll of toilet paper. He laughed and said "Did you see your shirt?" I looked down and my right boob was covered in "water" - um, yeah, NOT water - it was the LUBE from the wand!! I  hit it with my boob on the way out the door to the restroom! Oh my goodness, was there a lot of giggling once we realized what I had done. I don't think giggling it typically heard in those parts of the office!!

  3. Congrats!! So cool that you might get all those images and sounds to keep, too... our clinic is so freakin' budget with that stuff, we didn't even get photos of our embryos. I have a feeling we'll just have to keep all those milestones in our heads/hearts. :)
