well it's been three months. i made it past the first trimester! i should be out of the woods now. i went in the other day for the NT test. i was really nervous about it. i've been feeling so weird lately. it's almost like i'm feeling "too good". i haven't had any nausea or vomiting at all. i really haven't had any pregnancy problems. until i had that NT test, it was almost like i didn't really believe that i was actually pregnant. so when i saw the little thing right there on the ultrasound screen, it was so amazing. i actually said to it, "so you really are in there huh?". it made it all that much more real. i could have watched that screen for hours. it was moving all around and at one point i swear it looked like it was pounding on my stomach. i can't feel any movement yet. they said that i might start to feel some flutters in another month or so.
i got the results of the NT test back and they were perfect. they said that everything looked great so i'm going to start telling people now. the first will be my parents and sister. then jay will tell his family. this will be the first grandchild for my parents and the first niece or nephew for my sister.
it still just feels like it's so far away. i think of all the things that have to pass between now and january...jay's birthday, my birthday, halloween, thanksgiving, christmas...it just seems like it's still so far off.
i go in another 5 weeks for my next ultrasound. i wonder if they will be able to tell the sex then???
