What a great way to start off the weekend! This morning we had our 8.5 week ultrasound and the baby looks great. He/She is actually measuring a day ahead, so that makes me 8 weeks 6 days pregnant - new due date 8/3 (I'm sure that will change again eventually). The doctor estimated the heartbeat in the 150's, which is healthy and normal. So cool to see the flickering again - can't wait to hear it eventually.

It's hard to believe I will already be 9 weeks tomorrow. We are thankful for a healthy report - these early ultrasounds are so exciting, but can also be nerve-wracking since it's still so early and you never know what can happen.

Our next appointment will be our 10 week ultrasound with a new doctor. I am feeling lucky to be getting these ultrasounds - a lot of women only get a handful of them during their entire pregnancy and I will have seen the baby three times by ten weeks - fine by me!

This weekend we have brunch with friends, prenatal yoga for me, and a secret up our sleeves planned for Sunday - more on that later...
