Pregnant after a Loss

Can I be an AW for a sec? (21w ultrasound)

21w exact scan yesterday:

Baby is perfect!  4 working chambers in a heart, stomach in separate area from heart, kidneys and bladder functioning, no cleft lip or palate, strong and straight spine, cute little nose, a perfectly normal sized head (and my natural childbirth may thank her for that later), 14oz in weight, and 10 fingers and toes!  Feisty as can be, we got this adorable picture right off (with her hands under her chin) because she was sleeping but the second she woke up it was back to grabbing her feet and rolling around.  I am not going to have a lazy child apparently.

Hallelujah!!  My PGAL brain is finally finding peace.  That's a little person in there y'all!

I've been terrified the last 21 weeks (and beyond that it would never happen for us.  I've been protecting myself from loving her too hard just in case, but dangit I fell hard for her yesterday.  Plus, I'm not sure if it's mom-bias but that is a pretty baby I think.  ;)

    It was amazing!  The tech showed us everything as she went, took about an hour, and by the end I couldn't think of any "what-ifs" about her anymore because now I know everything is perfect.  Good luck on yours and Bring pictures!  I'm suddenly ultrasound crazy.  ;)

    The sonographer referred to it as her "coiled spring pose" since seconds later she realized she had an audience and began lterally bouncing off the walls.
