8 Weeks

Here we are at 8 weeks (Month 2)!! My first pre-natal appointment was June 22, 2011. I didnt get a belly picture this week but I do have something even better! Ultrasound pictures! Our first images of our little one!

In this one they are measuring the heart. The Fetal Heart rate was 160 bpm. I did ask the nurse if the whole "heart rate" talk was a wives tale or not (that girls HR is >140 and boys are <140) and she said that she has seen little boys heart rates be in the 160s before. So I guess we will have to continue waiting to find out if we have a little boy or girl! =) It was a STRONG heartbeat none the less, which makes us happy!

Here is our little one being measured. The crown to rump length was 1.53 cm.

She said that the little white part closest to the head (towards the left part of the picture) was part of the amniotic sac. Very amazing!!

Your baby's the size of a raspberry!
Now she weighs in (yay!) at about .04 ounces and measures about .63 inches. This week, she's growing about a millimeter each day.
