Graduation Day!

Happy Friday!! We graduated with flying colors from Dr. A's practice today! Everything looked great!! We saw Dr. C today which was actually really nice, because he took the time to show us different things then we've been shown before. He showed us where the umbical cord is attached to Cinco, showed us the four chambers of the heart, the kidneys and the stomach. It was just amazing. At one point the baby was even sucking on it's hand. Our nurse, C, commented on what a beautiful spine it has. :) Dr. C could not get a measurement from rump to crown this morning because the baby would not stay still long enough. :) All in all, it was a great morning. 

We made whoopie pies to bring in with us today to say thank you and they were very much appreciated. On our way out, one of the girls told us she was on her third one!!

J and I treated ourselves after our appointment and went out to breakfast. It was really nice to be able to celebrate. It's going to be weird to have to wait 2 weeks for another appointment!

I have two co-workers here at work that know about our struggles and I decided today was my day to tell them. One of them was out so I sent her the u/s picture - she is super happy for us! The other co-worker just came back from a meeting a few minutes ago and asked what I had wanted to show her (I had sent an email this morning saying I had something I wanted them to look at for me.) When I put the picture on my desk for her to look at she picked it up looked it and looked at me and BURST into tears. It really took me back. She said she was so happy for us and had been so afraid to ask me anything. (I skipped out on champagne at a meeting this week and it piqued their curiosity.)  I am still in awe of her reaction. It was so genuine and it really blew me away. 
What a day. :)
