Things I Should Not Have To Deal With On The Day of My First Ultrasound, Because OH MY GOD
A Sonogram Story

Thumpity Thump

So apparently, I am totally pregnant. With a baby.

And yes, I totally cried when the technician told us "Happy Valentine's Day!" right after turning up the volume on that that glorious, 160-beats-per-minute little heartbeat.

Awww. Eraserhead has a heartbeat! See, the Valentine's Day cuteness totally won you over.

Congrats. SOOOO happy for you!

Sue

I heart that Ultrasound technician! That's just too perfect!

Heather

Yah Eraserhead! Congrats! That is really awesome news.

maricar

YAY!! OMG! I'm crying. Congrats eraserhead! May I call him/her little edamame?

Janna

I'd be gagging myself with a spoon over the sentimentality of all this if it all weren't so darn cool.

emma

And now, I am totally crying too!

Chris

AWW! That is SO GREAT, Amy!

Something wonderful finally came out of Valentine's Day after all!

HOORAH FOR 160 BEATS PER MINUTE! ;-)

mzm

A few tears here too Amy....Hooray for heartbeats.

Jennifer

Yay for thumpity thumps! Yay for babies! Yay for Amalah!

JenE

Go, baby, go! Wonderful news!

Michele

Yay! I'm so happy for you and Jason.

Such an amazing feeling that is, when the room fills with the swooshing pulse that is a tiny little person's heart. Congratulations! What a Valentine's Day gift!

GranolaSpice

SO. Happy for you! Yay for pregnant thumps!

bond girl

yay! Congrats! You needed some sap given Eraserhead's nickname. Isn't it early to begin being this cruel to the child? You are so precocious! ;-)

Zoot

That is so FUCKING awesome.

Happy Valentine's Day, indeed.

Rbelle

Awesome!! I am very happy for you. With my little boy it always ran about 160... this time its lower and a girl. You have lots to look forward to!

Sheyl

Nothing better than a strong heartbeat :o)

Amanda

Best sound in the world, no?

chris

it's one of the weirdest little sounds in the world, but the very first time you hear it, you know you will never, ever forget it. there's probably not a stranger sound that results in a bigger smile! blessings all around!

Yay for you and Eraserhead!! Happy Valentine's Day!!

Monica

I'm so happy for you. What a wonderful sound to hear -- rent a doppler and you can hear it every single day!

kalisah

whosh...whosh...whosh...whosh...whosh...

You'll never forget that sound for as long as you live.

Mazel Tov. Before you know it you'll be changing diapers full of undigested corn, black beans and raisins.

So is Ceiba happy or mad that it didn't turn out to be a puppy that you're pregnant with?? And, speaking of which, have you broken the news to her yet?

Either way, many happy felicitations (or whatever that phrase from Charlotte's Web was) sent your way.

DC Tom

I didn't think anything would bring me out of my lurking lair, but I had to wish you the best over such great news. Congratulations!!!

bmh

Awesome. I'm so excited for you guys!

Karen

Congrats! And thank God it's with a *baby*, eh?

Best of luck!

Princess

Yay!!!! Its good to know that Eraserhead is doing good. I cant think of a better Valentines Day present.

Mary

Good thumping, Eraserhead! Keep up the good work!

We went for our "finding out gender" ultrasound on Valentine's Day with baby #2. Disgusting, isn't it? If I hadn't been so anxious to find out what it was (a "he") I would've scheduled it later just so people wouldn't think I did it to be cutesy.

Heather

Kudos to Eraserhead's heart! That? Is the beating of a lifetime. ;)

bluepoppy

oh little Thumper is for real real now!!! this is so exciting! thanks for sharing it with us!!

Fran

Awwweee I'm so happy for you too...I would have proclaimed her to be a her with that heartrate but what the heck do I know. Congratulations to all.

Jennifer

So happy for you! Congratulations!

Amy

Congrats for you and Thumper! (Oh, and Jason too!)

Irina

Congratulations! Yea, baby!

ktb

I AM SO THRILLED FOR YOU GUYS!!! CELEBRATE AND ENJOY WITH WHATEVER TADPOLE IS CRAVING TODAY!

Kitty

Yay! That's awesome! So it's sinking in now? I think it's safe to say you don't have to take any more pg tests. ;)

New Jan Brady

Count me in as one who is thrilled for you! Hooray!

alfredsmom

Congrats! How exciting! Post pictures!

Mrs.Strizzay

HOORAY!

Sundry

What fabulous news! You deserve some Frosted Flakes!

marymuses

Congratulations. That's wonderful! And it looks like Eraserhead is being re-nicknamed. For the record? Eraserhead is funny, but I like Thumper much better. Again, congratulations!

girl

Hey, I'm a first time commenter, but I've lurked before. Congratulations! Isn't that whooshing sound the best? I'm 18 weeks pregnant with my 3rd kid and still enjoy hearing that sound.

Have you had the endless stream of "How are you feeling?" and "Do you know if it's a boy/girl yet?" questions? I think they are standard issue.

Mir

Just what I wanted to see today. :) Congrats, hon.

JL

Congrats to you and Jason! What a wonderful Valentine's day for you both.

Megan

Hooray for good news!
