The little spot on the ultrasound screen has grown bigger. The fluttering of the heart reminds me of a lightning bug. So fast, so bright, makes me happy. We left with two copies of the ultrasound pictures.
This was also an appointment with lots blood work and a glucose test. They gave me five minutes to drink the bottle of glucola and as pathetic as this sounds, I was actually worried I might not finish it in the five minutes allotted. I’m not a fan of sugary sweet and this was at the highest of the sugary sweet category.
All the blood work and the glucola test came back clean/good.
After the appointment we told our siblings. More happiness and excitement.
