Baby Bell's First Picture
That is what I did yesterday! I had my first ultrasound and it was probably one of the neatest experiences I have ever had. I was a little nervous at first that something would be wrong, but everything is going along smoothly. She/he is measuring 9 weeks instead of 10 like we thought I was. So, I am now due November 4th, but we all know the likelyhood of that happening. But, I got to see the baby move a bit and hear the heartbeat (167 bpm, pretty darn good!. You can't tell that much from the picture, she/he def looks like a blob. (The little circle is the yolk sac.) On the screen I could see the little arm and leg buds and the brain. Very very exciting. It feels a lot more real now, and it is even nicer to know that everything is ok and moving along well.
But, no new knitting news. I did get the Yarn Harlot's new book this week as well as the Mason-Dixon Knitting book. They are both pretty great. I haven't got too much of a chance to read them yet, but I'm looking forward to it. I'm hoping to get some baby knitting done this weekend.
Have a wonderful Saturday everyone! It is beautiful here and I'm hoping it will warm up enough today to go swim in our pool.
