bean update

i don't have a lot of time to blog. but i wanted to share some photos of the "bean". we had a dr. appt. a week ago and everything looked great. the baby is growing strong and has a great heart rate! we were so surprised to see how big it grew in just 2 weeks. during the ultrasound, the dr. found a mass, and wasn't sure what it was. so i had to go back on wednesday to the hospital for another ultrasound. we weren't to worried, b/c the dr. said if it was a cyst it wasn't a big deal. but we were hoping that it was actually scar tissue from an accident i had in 1996. the ultrasound went very well, and we got to see the bean again. it was dancing again like crazy! the radiologist dr. said that the mass looked to be a cyst. it wasn't on my ovary like the dr. had thought, but it wasn't threatening to the baby or myself. he said i actually could have had it my entire life. they just might have missed in '96 b/c all of the blood that was in my abdomen. so, whew! we're very relieved and blessed. the drs. are just going to keep an eye on it. since it hasn't been causing me any kind of discomfort, they believe it will be just fine. other then that little bit of "scary" news, everything is great. my morning sickness has completely faded and i feel like my "old" self again. despite being very tired and hungry a lot of the time.
anywho, here's some pics!
