Be Still My Beating Heart....Wait, no! Don't be still!



Oh wow was this a difficult process! I've got helpers all over trying to guide me through conversion--mostly my mom and laura who did less guiding and more just doing (much obliged!). This pic here shows the embryo (if you get out your spectacles, you might be able to make out a "E" hovering over the embryo, if not, it's the blobby thing in the center above the large grayish tidal wave that takes up most of the page). The stuff on the right is the heartbeat (I suppose that's another duh, eh?). Apparently those dildo-type things they use to get the sonogram have speakers because we got to hear the heart beat out loud which got Eric really excited but just made me skeptical, I mean really, how do we know that's not MY heart beating??? Answer: this heart was beating 128 beats per minute, which, although not usual for me, is unlikely while calmly resting with my feet in stirrups (maybe not so unlikely actually...).

I have another pic to upload too but don't know how to add it to this same post so, as Arnold says, I'll be back (insert Austrian/Terminator accent)!

  2. hahah! thanks!! that is the photo eric took of me on our way down from observation point which is where we got engaged. i figured it was an appropriate pic as this is when the craziness began! you know, i cannot upload the other pic. it keeps saying "internal error" whatever that is. i think i need to ask libby or amy--a seasoned blogger....

  5. yes! let me know. siamack probably doesn't believe any of us could ever produce a boy! or he just knows us too well and is worried about that boy getting pink fairy wands for xmas!
