We had our 2nd ultrasound today with the OBGYN. He said everything looks amazing - couldn't ask for any better. By the calendar days since my last period I'm 8 weeks and 5 days. BabyG is measuring 8 weeks 3 days but he said it's just fine. We got to HEAR the heartbeat (which doesn't always happen this early - you can see it but sometimes can't hear it). It was pumping strong at 188 beats per minute!!
Our next appointment (the "official" New Pregnancy Marathon Appointment = 3 hours long) is in a couple weeks. So here you go!
It's hard to tell with the scanned pic but the baby has grown a LOT since the last one 2 weeks ago. Before it looked like a little peanut that was almost the same size as the yolk sack. Now you can see the head and the body (and little arm/leg buds when we saw the baby in person) and the sac is way smaller than the baby.
This is all so unreal still. I'm just amazed and thank God for every day He gives me with this little one.
