Its All Good!

First OB appointment today went very well. I think I'm really going to like this OB - she's got three kids of her own, is very approachable, has a great sense of humor and is very supportive of me staying active throughout the pregnancy.

We got to see a picture of our little peanut - heartbeat going strong and measuring right at 9 weeks so everything looks perfect. I was also very happy to hear that the risk of miscarriage after 9 weeks is pretty low so, as my doc said, I'm over the hump. So, its really happening, people - not that I've had my doubts but it definitely seems a bit more real after seeing that little heart fluttering on the monitor.

Yesterday, my friend Linda and I got together to go for a nice hike on Taum Sauk "Mountain", the highest point in Missouri. We had beautiful weather and some nice fall color - and three years faded away like nothing as soon as we saw each other. Friendship is a beautiful thing.

Speaking of friendship - thanks for sticking with me through this about face and the adventure that is just beginning. You guys are just the best - supporting me through my first season of tri and now this. So, anyway, I 'preciate it! Let the "off-season" begin!

Great news! So exciting too! And now? On to the next TRI-mester. See, you're not out of it!

Yeah! And it sounds like just 1 peanut, not 2. I forgot that the second time around your tummy knows the drill and just goes for it.

I'm glad things are going so well.

Wonderful news! It is silly how that first appointment can really settle your nerves. I am so glad you like your ob. That is HUGE!

What could be better? A hike in the cool fall color with an old friend and a new peanut. :)
