On Monday (19-Nov-2012 @ 3:15 pm) we had our first OBGYN pregnancy appointment. Sergey came with me to be a part of this exciting experience. I love my hubby!
Wow! We saw the baby on the monitor for the first time. Smiles all over the place! Because I am so lucky that I don’t have much of pregnancy symptoms, like morning sickness, fatigue, sore breasts… Seeing our little baby was invigorating and made me believe that I was truly carrying a little human inside of me. Until that very moment it all felt more like an illusion. But now I know our little one is in there!
Both Sergey and I were thrilled to see our baby and hear its strong heartbeat. We even got our baby on video. It looks like baby was waving at us and then jumping up and down, as if saying: “Hi mommy! Hi daddy! I’m doing great over here!” So adorable that even the doctor and nurse were mesmerized.
The doctor agreed with me that baby was 11 weeks and 2 days. So our planned due date has been set, as expected, for June 9, 2013. Let’s see when baby will really decide to come out.
Sergey had this beautiful glow about him the whole night after our first ultrasound. I think the ability to see what we’ve created together was very empowering for him. I love seeing my husband so happy! I am very happy to be married to him!
On Thursday 22-Nov-2012 we flew to Oregon to spend Thanksgiving with Grandma Floy Hopple. She is 87 and has been using oxygen for a while now. However, she’s been a trouper for both days with us! We played a lot of board games, talked and simply enjoyed company with each other. It was a wonderful couple of days spent with family.
Baby and I did great on the plane both ways. Then on Saturday, our amazing next door neighbors (Lena and Sergey Magonovy) invited us over for a feast! The food was delicious! I could not move for at least an hour after this awesome meal. Yum!
