First Ultrasound!

We had our first OB appointment today!  It went great!  We got to see our little gummy bear!  Everything looked perfect, you could see the little heart beating, and its measuring 8 weeks 3 days, which is 3 days ahead.  We didn't listen to the heart beat because this place doesn't like to use the Doppler before 12 weeks but they measured it with some sort of wave thing and said it was 163 which is exactly what it is supposed to be.  Here is the cute little blob!
It looked a bit more "baby" like during the actual ultrasound.  Next S will have a blood draw at 10 1/2 weeks to get genetic testing done and also to find out the sex (!!??!!).  So crazy, so awesome, so happy.  They also gave S some samples of an anti nasua drug called Diclegis.  She took one this afternoon and it seems to help.  But it does have a sleeping medication as part of it so it does make her sleepy so I don't think she will be able to take it during work. She is going to check next week with her endocrinologist to see if she can possibly take her thyroid pills before bed instead of first thing in the morning which could maybe help with all the morning sickness as well.  We will see.

Also, we are "Facebook official" and announced this afternoon.  S is too sick to hid things much and everyone I know I've told anyway.  So now the world knows!  And this was one of the cutie pie pictures we used to announce:
His shirt says "Soon to be a big brother" if you can't read it.  We are all so very happy.
