Focusing on #Pregnancy Love, I want to take a moment to celebrate
For the First Time
It is a wonderful feeling to know you are pregnant, to have feel pregnancy symptoms and know there is life within. Take that feeling and multiply it by 100- when you have your first ultrasound and you can “see your baby“.
That is why today for #Pregnancy Love Month, I want to celebrate that first ultrasound. An ultrasound is used to monitor pregnancy and to diagnose and monitor medical conditions that are not related to pregnancy (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecolologist (ACOG), 2017).
This is a moment when your pregnancy becomes tangible. A connection between knowing you are pregnant and “knowing’ you are pregnant. Your first ultrasound is an opportunity to ‘ see’ your baby. You may receive your first ultrasound at 7-8 weeks for a dating ultrasound. Do not be surprise if your baby looks like a “little bean”. Your doctor may schedule your first ultrasound for an Anatomy ultrasound around 18-22 weeks, which is also called a Fetal Survey. This is the ultrasound where the doctor can see your baby in its entirety organs, bones, growth, and gender if you desire.
Whenever, you have your first ultrasound, CELEBRATE IT! This is the moment you can see that your baby is thriving inside of you.
Celebrate your baby that you are ‘seeing’ . Celebrate your baby that you are helping blossom and become who he/she was born to be. Celebrate ‘seeing’ a dream come true!
Celebrate another reason to Love Pregnancy!
Do you remember your first ultrasound? Do you have an ultrasound story to tell. Comment below. I would love to hear from you!
