The Big Debut of Baby Burgoon II









"It" is finally here....well there! We are so happy to announce that our baby is safely implanted and, at 7 weeks, has a great little heart beat! The doctor said that all looks well but wants to perform another ultrasound at 9 weeks, which of course makes me nervous, but I am just going to try and focus on the fact that I get to see my little one again really soon! I have been feeling great. This pregnancy has been very similar to Rylan so far, as I haven't had any sickness, just fatigue. I do suffer for indigestion probably every night and my stomach always feels like I ate something yucky. I was the same way with Rylan though. I am so grateful to Ben that I am able to be home with Rylan, especially being pregnant. What a world of a difference it makes! I am lucky to be able to nap with Rylan and somewhat take breaks. I kept a pregnancy journal with Rylan and at this point I was suffering a lot of back pain and was SO much more tired and I know it was my job! I have never been able to say that being home was easier than working until now! So I am truly grateful to him for working so hard so that I can be home. I will keep you all posted on the next ultrasound and post the pictures...of course! Thanks to everyone for their support and excitement for us! We love you all!

What a cute little smudge! That's what Dr. McTamanny called Reddin when I had my 7 week ultrasound. Do you know that when I went in yesterday, he told me to come back in 3 weeks instead of 4. NOt quite sure shy, but oh well. He's so funny. The baby looks great and we are very happy for you guys.

Did that kind of freak you out too?? I am trying not to think about it and just do like you said and be happy I get to see "it" again. Maybe he's bored! :) But he does go down to 3 weeks earlier than most doctors and then every 2 weeks during the third trimester. I remember that from Rylan, so maybe that's what he is doing. I'll check my journal and see. I remember when he had me do that I was surprised b/c nobody elses doctors had done it that way before. Then I thought it was kind of cool.

Thanks Stephanie and America! I know, I trust Dr. McTammany SO much. I guess when things have been hard I just can't imagine myself being so lucky as to have 2 good pregnancies. It will maybe sink in soon though. :) I hope! I'm sure once I see everything is ok next week I will be good.
