Baby waves!

Yes, everything when fine, despite all my feelings of doom and gloom and self-fulfilling prophecies.
The baby waved at us after the u/ s tech woke her up.
She has arms and a head and  a body. We think she has legs too but we couldn't really see them.
Her HB was 175 BPM.
S asked on the way home if we should consider a nickname for our little one.
Sweet! We haven't come up with anything yet, but knowing my propensity for making up names on the spot,  it could happen at any minute!
There is more to say but work is completely crazy and I was off with a cold yesterday so it's even worse than usual.
Stay tuned!
Thanks for all the cheers again!

yay! I am so happy and relieved for you!
You're right about those nicknames. They come out of nowhere and they stick!

Oh!!! It's so sweet seeing that first little wave!! Just wait until you feel him or her moving around in there-- coolest feeling in the world!

And yes, a name will come to you spontaneously. Or maybe several will. Ours have gone by an absurd amount of names so far, none of which remotely resemble the actual names that we've tentatively decided upon. (Lately, they're the "twitchers", 'cos they twitch and twitch and twitch-- not much kicking or punching, just fidgeting. Little weirdos!)

Glad all went well. Aren't those u/s amazing? We never got tired of seeing our litte guy. I notice you are saying "she." will you be okay if it is a "he"
