Not quite out of the woods, but we should make it through the forest

Few, there's a title for ya! So, today sucked butt. Lindsey didn't get here until after 1 am. BUT, she brought me Bang Bang shrimp, strawberry shortcake, salad, and soup from Bonefish, so I forgive her! However, I only got 5 hours of crappy sleep. So, I was tired & cranky all day!
UNTIL, Tim got to work & we went for my doctor's appointment! First up, I had to strip from the waist down for the awful transvaginal ultrasound. That is so uncomfortable! We got to watch our baby for a good 5-10 minutes and it was awesome! We could see the little peanut's heart flickering and beating away! The sac was measuring about a week behind the baby, but the tech said that is normal.
Baby Goetsch was measuring in at 5 weeks and 5 days and according to my LMP (last menstrual period) I am 5 weeks and 6 days. So, we're right on track. TECHNICALLY the due date has been bumped back to Nov. 4, but they can move it around so much throughout the pregnancy that I'm not going to change my tickers!
After the ultrasound, we had our little meeting with Dr. Morgan and he basically said, we're not out of the woods, but we can see the way out of the forest now! He's finally encouraged and hopeful that this baby will MAKE IT!

So, in the pictures, the black spot is the baby's "gestational sac" and the little white noodle is the baby. It kind of looks like an elbow macaroni!
After the doctor interview, we had my full annual exam. I had an internal and a breast exam and it sucked because Dr. Morgan REALLY hurt me. (during BOTH!) Tim laughed at me when he hurt my boobs..they've been so sore! He also made me bleed a little from the pap smear and I'm hoping that stops tomorrow.
After the doctor appointment, Tim and I went to Tom and Peggy's house. We visited with them for a while and then headed to my Girl Scout meeting. After Girl Scouts we went to I-Hop for dinner.
Now, it's bed time. We left my car at school, so we have to get up early to carpool tomorrow!

Congrats, Steph! I'm glad your ultrasound went well, only about 34 more weeks to go!

Your baby's first pictures look wonderful!

Yay for Peanut Goetsch!! I hope that's a little girl macaroni! ;)

Do you have a baby book yet? You should get one and start putting the u/s pictures in there!

So did you stay for your GS meeting after all?

Congratulations Stephanie! Love the ultrasounds.... those are the best. I wouldn't worry about the bleeding, it happened to me on my exam on my first visit and it stopped by that night.
