6 weeks and 5 day ultrasound:

We have one little Soupbaby inside me!

I am officially 6 weeks, 5 days PG today, and we got to see the circle yolk sac, with the little fetal "pole" that looks like a grain of rice next to it. The little heartbeat was flickering, like a light on and off, on and off. 120 beats per minute. Our Doc and the U/S gal said the bean is measuring right on for the age and heartbeat looks great.

We go back in 2 weeks for another confirmation to make sure all measurements continue as they should!
So we are so excited to someday meet our little Keifer Campbell!

Either Keifer Lynn
or
Keifer Dale or Keifer James (after one of the papas, but undecided. Possibly go with Dale because he pretty much helped us pay for all of this)

Yes, it's early for a name, but when you've been trying for 3 years, names come up . Keifer means "Cherished" and we know this little soupbaby will be very cherished!

Thanks for the continued support and prayers!


Estimated Due Date: April 3, 2007

Here is a pic I found online that shows what we saw today: our pic is SO hard to figure out, its very grainy and nothing is recognizable, but this is basically what we could see: the circle yolk sac is what I saw first, as soon as she inserted the ultrasound wand -- and then the little grain of rice next to it with the flickering heartbeat! *sigh*
Hopefully in 2 weeks, when we have our 2nd U/S, I'll have a better pic of MY uterus to share! LOL

Congrats, so happy to hear that things went well. I really like Kieffer too! Cute choice.

You will have a much easier pregnancy (hopefully) since there is only one in there. :) Good luck and keep updating. I enjoy your blog.

Yay, Carrie & Chris!! This baby feels like such an amazing blessing ... a miracle. What a beautiful name to express that.

Carrie,
Cherished is exactly what Keifer will be. I'm so happy for you and Chris. I had a wonderful time this weekend and can see clearly what an amazing mother you already are!

I have goosebumps reading your post. I am so thrilled for you and know this baby will be cherished. What a great name. I am following you closely because we are going in for our first ultrasound this Thursday- my due date is April 11 (but it's a secret still as most people don't know).

Enjoy every moment of this pregnancy.
