Olive you!

I just got back from the doctor and everything is looking good! According to my 3rd ultrasound, baby Hardesty is growing right on-track (9wks 2 days) and is about the size of a green olive. The heartbeat... Wow! 180 beats per minute, which is fantastic! It was just so exciting to see him/her wiggling around! Check out our little gummy bear... I swear s/he has legs - I guess this was an action shot because I could see them moving around :)

Also, a little background info: In August 2010, I was diagnosed with Heterozygous Factor V (5) Leiden and Methylenetetrahydrofolate (AKA MTHFR, which is way more fun to say). Because of this diagnosis, my doctor is sending me to a high risk doctor just to make sure that my medication is good, and that I shouldn't be on a stronger blood thinner. I currently take baby aspirin everyday and my doctor seems to think that this is all I need, but she would like a second opinion. Just another reason why I love my doctor... She is very proactive!

Until I hear back from the high risk doc, my next appointment is on March 22nd at 11:20. This one should be pretty uneventful though, as I am only scheduled to meet with the Nurse Practitioner. The only other update that I have right now is that I'm pretty sure I have broken the world record for having the most consecutive hours of nausea... So expect to see my picture in the next edition of Guinness Book of World Records! I'm not complaining though, just simply stating the facts!


  1. I am so flippin excited for you! and Andrew! but mostly for me!!!!!!! yay and Praise God!!! I just love and adore the the little arms and legs and if you look really, really hard "she" is smiling!

  2. Hmmmmm. I just happened to look yesterday and saw that you posted somthing new. I thought when I signed up as a "follower" it would send an email or something when there was a new post. Is that not what "follower" means? How do I make that happen? I don't want to miss anything!

    Olive you, too!

  3. Interesting... I would think that if you're a "follower" it would send you a message automatically. However, I have the ability to select up to 10 people to notify when I publish a post. I'll try that and hopefully it does the trick! :)
