"Perfect, Perfect, Perfect..."

were the words of Dr. R at my 8 week ultrasound.  These words were music to my ears!  However, soon after that I was in tears, which was completely unexpected!

Thursday night at 3am I woke up with a horrible migraine.  This was the third one this week!  I tossed and turned in bed til about 4, then decided to head down stairs and read, so I didn't wake my sleeping husband.  I googled headaches in early pregnancy, found that it was "normal" with the high amount of estrogen floating in my body.  There is nothing I could do about it.  No amount of Tylenol helps!  I finally fell back asleep at 440am and slept til 715. 

C woke up and said I should cancel our appointment since I wasn't feeling well and because Dr. R said we could skip this week if we wanted.  After calling my mom (who is a Labor and Delivery nurse!), she said it might be best to go in since I'm having headaches.  I moved my appointment to 9, C decided he couldn't go because he had a client coming in, so I went alone.

Regardless of feeling like crap, I was really excited to see the babies.  I knew from looking at my friends recent u/s that at 8 weeks, the babies would start to look like babies.  Dr. R got the babies on the ultra sound and this is what I saw... two beautiful babies with distinguishable features and hearts beating faster than ever!
"Perfect, Perfect, Perfect..." replied Dr. R.  He gave me a hug and said this would be our last appointment.  He wanted my OB's phone number so he could send her a letter explaining her new patient... ME!  In Dr. R's embrace, the tears began!  I couldn't explain why I was crying... at first! 

After getting dressed, I left the room and was welcomed with a "congratulations" by all of the nurses.  The tears continued falling.  I realized then that I graduated, and that is why I was crying... tears of joy!  I am no longer an infertile patient, but a patient moving on.  I am ready to embrace this pregnancy a normal pregnant woman would... with an OB!

Here is what they left me with...
