Still Growing!

We had our ten week ultrasound today, and, this time, JH was able to join us.  It was unbelievable how much had changed in four weeks. No longer is our little fetus a vibrating piece of rice.  It is now shaped like a baby and squirming around like a hyper little gummy bear and waving it’s arms and legs as though it was doing jumping jacks.  Heartbeat was strong and doctor said that all the movement was best indicative of how well the pregnancy is progressing.  It was an unbelievably powerful and emotional day.

heartbeat

Heartbeat confirmed!  Today we were able to see the baby’s heartbeat on ultrasound. It was confirmed at 108 bpm, which is apparently appropriate for the gestational age (6w 5d).  It basically looked like a short vibrating piece of string.

Next ultrasound isn’t until September 24th.  At that point we will be 10 weeks.  We are very much looking forward to that scan in the hopes that we can rest a little easier

Singleton

We had our first appointment with the OBGYN this week and we got great news!  We are five weeks and six days pregnant with a singleton measuring CRL 2.6mm.  The due date is April 21, 2011.

While we were a bit early to see a heartbeat, the doctor said all looked as it should. We will be repeating the ultrasound this week to confirm heartbeat!  SO exciting (and so anxious about next u/s)!!!!!!
