Talking I gave in.

And called my doc this morning. I actually started feeling really bad last night, throwing up and cramping. But it wasn't TERRIBLE, so I waited until today to call and see if I should do anything. They had me come in and did an ultrasound. They said cramps are perfectly normal, but that if I was worried I should ALWAYS come in. They were so nice and I was so grateful that they didn't think I was a fruit loop!

Anyway, the baby is great. They did the U/S on my belly instead of vaginally, which was great for me. They weren't sure they'd be able to see anything but we did! We saw the baby and the heartbeat, then they let me listen to the heart beat for a minute! I was so relieved! The HR was 176 (exactly what my doppler said yesterday and the day before). But it was reassuring to SEE it. I've lost a little weight and my blood pressure was lower than normal, but nothing to worry about. Although it explains the lightheadedness when I stand up! Anyway, here are the pics!

Oh yeah, I was measuring a day behind, but they said it's no big deal!
