Baby Eads First Picture

>> Friday, November 09, 2007

Michael and I went for our first ultrasound on Wednesday. The technician gave us the best possible news....there is only one! Everything is progressing well. The baby is 16mm long (about a half inch). She actually pushed back my due date a little, which is now June 19, 2008. So I am just at eight weeks. I thought my expanding waist line meant I was further along, but apparently not.

The baby had a strong heartbeat at 160 beats per minute. According to the old wives tale this indicates a girl. I will have to post all the crazy indications of what determines if it is a boy or a girl. In the meantime take the poll!

I have felt my energy picking up a little bit this week. I am also learning to control the morning sickness a little better. Mainly by eating more (hence the expanding waist line!) I am counting down until the twelfth week. That means no more praising the porcelain god!
