My Baby is a Baby!!!

Can I just say that I am so in love!  I can't even explain it....I just keep looking at the new pictures of our baby in awe.  I smile out of the blue when ever I think about Lil' Poppy.  I now know just an inkling of a mother's love and it is amazing!

We went in for our 9 week follow up yesterday.  It had been 2 weeks since we had seen Poppy and with having a missed miscarriage last time, I was scared to death that they would start the conversation with the words " I am very sorry".  I am trying my hardest to be positive, but for those of you that have had a loss before, you know how it is, right?

Well, those words were not mentioned at all.  Actually the conversation stated with " There's your baby"!  And boy did Poppy look like a baby.  We could see his (let's just say he for now) little arms and legs.  He has a big ole noggin'.  His heart rate was at 176 BPM and I was able to get audio of it, which I will now be listening to ALL OF THE TIME!  He measured just a few days ahead, but of course that is normal so we will be keeping the same due date of March 5th.

We even got to see him move around.  I think Poppy is going to be a mover and a shaker...a dancer of some sorts.  He was just a dancin' around....kind of a pop and lock routine...hahaha.   I can't wait to see him again in 2 weeks.  We go in for our NT scan which is very scary.  I am going to keep the faith though and hey, it's another chance for us to see Poppy!

I would like to introduce everyone to our little Poppy!  Don't worry, we will be giving him a real name as soon as we know the sex.  But for now....Introducing Poppy Jenkins!!!!
