All's well that ends well

After having worried and fretted the last few days it looks like it was all for not... as all of you predicted. Olive is doing well, measuring dead on, and a generally all around good looking baby :)
Batman and I couldn't be more elated! It was such a relief when first our nurse (C the GOOD nurse) and then Dr W came in and said Olive was looking good and measuring perfectly. The only issue we had is that Olive is facing out (sorry I can't remember the technical term) with back up against my back. As you can imagine this makes it pretty difficult to get a good look at the spine and the heart. I'm not worried at ALL about this since this is pretty typical for 20 wk u/s. Plus it means I get to see Olive again in 4 wks (or less depending on whether or not I can get another scan at work) ;-)

I've gained 5 lbs since the last appt which puts me at 7 lbs overall. If I keep it at this rate my doc thinks I'll stay under the 30 lb mark (which is good since I was a couple lbs over optimum pre-BFP) Yippee! (Too bad my ass has gotten the full brunt of the weight gain already)

And now for a few pics:
Here is Olive's face... it's kind of creepy, alien looking. But you can sort of make out the eyes and nose.



Here are Olive's feet. Aren't they just precious? And already HUGE!



And here is the profile. Isn't Olive just the cutest little thing ever?



The rest of the day has been filled with calling and texting every family member, friend, co-worker, and acquaintance we know... and some we may not? Everyone is pretty ecstatic and almost as relieved as we are... although they all maintain that they knew Olive was fine all along. ;-)

We went and saw the new Star Trek movie too, sort of in celebration. Anyone seen it yet? Because it. is. AWESOME! I can't wait to see if they make anymore. They have completely changed the story line and I would really like to see where they take it from here!!

I guess that's it...













Oh wait, you mean I didn't tell you what Olive is? (besides a baby I mean) OH! Well I'll just leave you with a last u/s pic and see if you can guess yourself ;-) (I'm just terrible aren't I?)



What do you think?
