Last RE Appointment

I was so nervous! I actually woke up this morning feeling pretty 'normal.and it had me really, really concerned. We dropped Baby C off at the babysitters around 9:15am. We stopped at TRU trying to find a mesh bumper for Baby C's crib. They didn't have any. I guess I need to order one online tonight. That's a whole other story.
We got to the office a little early. We even got taken back to the ultrasound room early. But, our appointment didn't start until it was supposed to. Our fault... we like to be early. It was just a hard, long wait. But, it was well worth it.

Our baby has grown a ton. I expected to measure 9w (based off of last ultrasound); we measured 9w1d. We got to hear the heartbeat again. We didn't get the measurement. Arm and leg buds were present and they we absolutely cute to see!! We could even see the brain starting to form. I was suprised to see the amniotic sac. Our RE said it will eventually fuse (be as big as the gestational sac). We also go to see the yolk sac again. She would like me to continue the progesterone until 12 weeks and metformin throughout the entire pregnancy. She said that she would say that I would continue the BA until viability. She said she doesn't want to hear from us until after September. I told her we may call with an update. She huged the both of us.

We have offically been released from our RE and we even signed our medical release forms.

We then headed off to lunch at L.onghorn's and stopped at M.eijer to get the "big sister" t-shirt we had spotted there this past Saturday. The smallest we could find was a 12months. Maybe they don't think people with babies who are wearing 6-9 months clothes would be in the position to need a "big sister" shirt. Well, we do! Hopefully, it will look o.k as a dress!

Our next appointment is Monday with our new OB. We are going to tell some of our family this evening! I will let you know their reactions as soon as I can. Could this really be happening?

Awww. Congrats! I remember looking for a big brother outfit for my son who was also in 6-9 month clothes, and I couldn't find it. Frustrating! Enjoy this. So happy for you. :)

I am freaking out for you. You must just feel like turning in circles not knowing what to do with yourself. I hope nothing but the best and can only imagine how excited you must be to tell your family. Enjoy that experience!

Such wonderful news!! I'm so happy for you and will be keeping you and little baby in my prayers for a safe and happy 9 months! Baby C will be a great big sister!

Yep, it's really happening:)! Believe me, I am almost 39 weeks and still not believing it is happening! Congrats on moving to the OB! It's funny you brought up the onesie - I want a big brother one for Jax, but they don't make those for 6 month! My friend is making one for us, because we have a little sister one for Addy. Anyway, good luck telling family - so fun!
