Ultrasound - 8wks 6days

It has been a busy day...I have two conferences going on this week at work and my intern is out of the office! Thankfully, my Assistant Director helped out with my group in the afternoon so I could leave for our appointment. The afternoon went great! We saw our baby right away when she started the ultrasound! I knew he/she would be about double in size, but I couldn't believe how big! It was so exciting to see the head, body, arm/leg buds, and the heartbeat! The nurse practitioner held the wand really still and we actually saw the baby move! It was so exciting!! The heartbeat was looking great, too....154 beats per minute. That's an increase from two weeks ago - boy or girl?! The baby is also measuring a couple days ahead at 9weeks 2days. I can't believe this is really happening!
