13 weeks

We had our 13 week OB appointment today, just to make sure everything's still going well with Cart's pregnancy. The nurse wasn't able to find the heartbeat using the Doppler machine... that was very very nervewracking. As she keeps moving the wand around on my belly, she says to no one in particular "I really hope that I am not making you nervous by not being able to find the baby's heartbeat."

Really? What could possibly be more nervewracking right now???

They eventually wheeled in an ultrasound machine, and were able to find Cart and the heartbeat immediately. Thank goodness! Everything looks good and heartbeat is strong.

During the ultrasound, Cart gave us a good profile shot and a little wave. Super cute hiccups too! At one point, Cart rotates a little bit and gives us a full face shot. We can see the mouth opening and closing like a fish.

Nate says very matter of factly "Perhaps we should be calling her Carp instead."

Phew! No, not nervewracking at all. Congratulations and we'll be thinking of you guys.
