For your viewing pleasure, I give you -
Okay, so the large black blob on the right is the amniotic sac, and the other blob inside the black blob is the baby blob! I know it's a little blurry but I can see the head and an eye, possibly an arm as well.
We had the ultrasound on Wednesday, my first prenatal appointment. I met my doctor, a lovely British man I'll call Dr. P, because that's his name. He called the baby a rascal when he found the heartbeat! The Huz came with me to the appointment, cuz he's awesome like that. I had to warn him, though, that another man was going to be touching my bits and pieces right in front of him, and that he shouldn't get upset and beat the guy up, because that is the man's job. The Huz took it very well.
The baby is measuring at 8 weeks and 1 day. I calculate that the baby is 9 weeks and 3 days. So this baby is due some where between March 22nd and March 31st. I am really hoping for a March baby, because my and The Huz's birthdays are in March, and so is our anniversary. It would be perfect!
In other news, I have not returned to work yet since the accident. It is not recommended for expectant mothers to ride the Studio Tour, due to the intense shaking of Earthquake, so we're still trying to line up what I will do for work during the pregnancy. If my department can't find anything for me, and there are no openings available in any other department, then I will be placed on a medical leave. I can live with that, I think!

That's right, folks.
I'm going to have a baby!
I don't yet know exactly how far along I am, but from my guesstimation, I'll be having this baby sometime around the end of March and the beginning of April.
The kid and I have reached an agreement about morning sickness (not going to happen) and so far, there have been no strange food cravings. But it's early days yet.
Everyone is absolutely thrilled. We drove Home to tell the "grandparents" - my dad had to sit down on the stairs, he was so excited.
The Huz has started a blog about the experience here on Blogger. It's called One In The Oven. Stop by and visit; I think we'll both be writing on there.
What an adventure, huh?
