10w6d ultrasound

It's amazing the happiness I feel every time I see our little baby on that ultrasound screen. I got all teary during the u/s thinking how far we've come.

Today our little one was jumping all over the place and even waved at us!  I can't believe all that movement is going on inside of me and I can't feel it!

Baby is measuring right on schedule at 10 weeks 6 days (4.11cm) and the heart rate is 164. I can't believe how much bigger s/he is compared to the last u/s we had (2.07cm).  Grow baby grow!

look at that spine!

So tomorrow is 11 weeks, I'm almost done with the first trimester and so grateful to be pregnant.  My nausea has slowed down quite a bit although meat still isn't agreeing with me.  My belly size (or bloating) is up and down from day to day- I could even wear normal jeans again on Monday with a rubber band.  One new thing I have noticed is more headaches- not fun but I'll deal with it.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

  14. At my 8 week ultrasound, our baby's heartbeat was 165. At our last ultrasound at 12 weeks, the heartbeat was 161...I'm curious to see at our 16 week appointment if the heartbeat is still the same or not...I hear faster heartbeats like ours mean we are having girls! Lol Gotta love old wives tales!
