    Going to be a dad part 2. :)

    Today was the first OB visit! There was much anxiety, and I'll be honest, it sucks to be a doctor in this situation, when you know the zillion different things that can go wrong. But today we were reassured a little bit when everything looked OK, and we saw this (annotated for those unfamiliar with ultrasound):



    2 little feet, 2 little hands, a beating heart, all kickin' around in there. It was the most amazing thing I've ever seen.

    YAY!! That is fantastic news! I could see all the little parts right away, I still remember my daughter's first ultrasound so clearly...here's wishing you the best luck a person can possibly have.

    YAY! Great to hear. Is it just me, or is that baby pedaling an invisible bike, with little hands on the handlebars?

    The first one is always an adventure into the unkown. It gets easier after that and having kids is the best thing you can do in life.
    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large

    That's not our experience ... logistically, more kids means more demands for attention.
    We have two kids (9months, and 2y10months) and it would be MUCH easier if we had only one.

    You mean "trying to generate kids"?

    Yikes... I just watched Alien III last night (the one that takes place on the isolated prison colony).



    .. congrats Dr Pete. I hope it's human. (but I'm sure you'll love it even if, uhm.. )

    I always called the kids "Alien" before they were born; not sure why but I didn't want to share the name before they popped. Drove my mother nuts, she didn't like them being called Alien. Drove me nuts waiting for them to come out.

    Edit: Crap! Forgot to log my wife out!

    My wife was in the hospital just before our boys were born (Twins) and I went to the Blind Pig (Bar) in Ann Arbor to see my Brother In Law's band play and also Grinder (Darren McCarty's band). After, I got D'Macs autograph for the boys, and wouldn't even tell him the names. Everyone thought they would find out (Brother in law, his wife, my sister, & a couple others were there), but I held out!!

    Congrats, and enjoy the time, as it does pass quickly!!!! My boys just turned 5 and it doesn't seem that long ago we were changing diapers.

    How far along is your wife now? I can't remember if that is on the U.S. or not. Are you going to find out if your having a boy or girl, let it be a suprise?

    Congrats Dr Pete. I used to hate in when people said that babies (usually their baby) were so beautiful. They all looked the same to me....like slobbering, pooping, crying clones that all looked the same to me. When I saw my son for the first time and he looked at me I cried because I had never seen anything so beautiful in my life.

    So be ready for it.....the moment in your life where you will KNOW that you're looking at the most beautiful thing you've ever seen. Then the slobbering, pooping and crying will commence.

    Cheers,

    Michael
    RIP Stacey. =3.

    Yeah, it's on the ultrasound, along with a bunch of other gibberish. The "GA (LMP) 10W2D" is the gestational age measured by last menstural period, which is now 10 weeks and 2 days.

    My wife is 35 (a bit of a cougar ) so this is technically a high-risk pregnancy. So we'll be getting the Full Monty of genetic tests, a "Level 2" ultrasound, and all the other stuff. So not only will we know the sex, we'll know (maybe) more than we'd ever care to. As gender goes, though, neither of us wants to let it be a surprise...

    After the first positive pregnancy test, I told my wife that after conception you really just have what's pretty much a ball of cells and goo. So early on we called it "the goo." Now, we get these weekly e-mails from WebMD that describe the growth and development week to week, and describe the size of the baby in terms of food products. We've already gone from Goo to Pea to Raspberry to Strawberry to Shrimp. Not many good name ideas so far.

    Congratulations! Are these the first? Enjoy them as much as possible when they are young.

    Don't worry, when they go off to college you'll be able to start riding again. But, you won't be able to afford repairs or entry fees.

    Thanks, I'm not a religious person, BUT, I have always believed that being able to save a life is the greatest gift god can give you, and the greatest gift you can give someone or an animal. Not really knowing Drpete, but judging from his posts, I think his child is in good hands, and wouldn't be suprised to see later in life that he or she doesn't follow the path of some sort of healer.

    Congrats dude, I still remember the first ultrasound I saw, it was quite a life changing experience

    So let me ask ya, you mentioned being a Doctor makes you worried; I've heard that Doctors tend to be hypochondriacs, do you find yourself feeling that way regarding situations like this?

    That's the interesting paradox, I think--more doctors tend to downplay their own symptoms. As a group, we're not always the best at taking care of ourselves.
