8w6d *updated w/ pics

Today there was a lil mix-up at the dr's appointment again. Somehow, they canceled my appointment and never told me - the OB nurse thinks it was a mistake by the office staff not understanding dr's notes, but all was well they gave me an U/S and that make me happy as can be.

I will post a picture later.... It looks like a mini baby now. I actually cried for the first time. I think it was a little bit of the confusion of the appointment and them actually turning the sound on so we could hear the strong heartbeat. They say all my labs and hormone levels are going great and I have lost 4 lbs.

I am measuring 8w6d..which adds up to what my ticker says I am at today. The baby is 1 inch long and has a heart rate of 164 or 165.

My next appointment is Dec 14th. They will do the nuchal translucency at that time and most likely take me off my progesterone.

All is going well.
