8 week ultrasound

I have lots of catching up to do, I know! Our Vegas trip, our new house, the holidays...

But today all I have time for is an update on our ultrasound appointment yesterday. It was a pretty quick appointment, but that doesn't mean that all kinds of great stuff wasn't packed into that short time!

Maurice was not my ultrasound tech this time. Instead, it was a sweet young woman. She talked more than Maurice had, and explained some things to me.

Right away I noticed that out little baby had grown considerably since last week! Baby was almost shaped like a baby. Last week it was more like a blur.

The heartbeat was also noticeably different this week. Last week, it was muffled and kind of static-y sounding. This week, it was loud and clear. Like a drum. It was such a beautiful sound.

157 bpm this week, versus 130 last week. I take that as a good sign!

I have a 9 week ultrasound scheduled for Monday. After that one, I should be released from my clinic in NYC.

This still doesn't feel real.
