Introducing the little Peanut
There's the little peanut(it's that bright spot in the dark circle)!
It was worth all the pain and discomfort of holding my pee (it was really, really uncomfortable) to see the little guy and I even got to see his heart beating!
It was so amazing - and really cute, actually.
It's for real.
It's also funny to think that here I am, posting the inside of my uterus to the whole blogosphere.
It's funny what becomes acceptable when you're pregnant.
You can burp. Sleep more. Vomitting becomes expected. And mood swings - well, they just come with the territory.
Can I just elaborate on the whole holding my pee deal?
I can't even explain how much pain I was in. It took everything I had to focus on not peeing. Jamie wanted to help, but I told him to just leave me alone so I could focus on not letting anything tinkle out.
When the technician finally let me go (after pressing and prodding for what seemed like infinity - although I was distracted by how cool it was to see the little peanut on the screen) I think I peed for over a minute.
It was pretty much the longest pee I've ever had. I think I could out-pee any guy any day.
And now I've grossed out pretty much everyone.
It's my blog and you don't have to read it if you don't want to.
And now I sound officially pregnant.
