8 week appointment

So last Monday I had my 8 week appointment. I know I am a week late posting but I could not get to a scanner. Everything looked great. The heartbeat was 179 which was right on target. The doctor said it will level off in the next couple of weeks. The baby has grown quite a bit since the first ultrasound we had done. It was so cool to see how much it has grown in 2 weeks. I am going to post a picture even though there is not too much to see. Oh, and I need to give credit where it is due my good friend Amanda was kind enough to scan the picture for me. Thanks Amanda!

scanning pictures of baby murphree is more fun than work. No problem!

So cool! I am so jealous though. Unless they suspect something is wrong with the baby, Lee OBGYN only does one ultrasound the entire time--at 17 weeks or so. So, my one and only is 4 weeks from today. The upside is at the ultrasound we will find out what we are having! I hope that you are feeling better!

I love the ultrasound pic! It's so neat to see a picture of the baby so early. I ended up being 12 weeks at my first ultrasound unlike the 8 weeks we originally thought so the baby was much more formed at my first one. This one is so neat, to be able to see the yolk sac and all. How can anyone not see the LIFE that is growing inside you!

Oh, what a beautiful picture! I know the ultrasounds were so very special to me! Sounds like all is well! I predict BOY :) Ha!

Let me know if you need anything or have any questions...I'm just moving on along this journey, too!
