Growth

I went to the Dr. today and heard the baby's heart beat for the first time, it was crazy! I also got to see just how much the baby has changed in a month, so much it's amazing to me. It's so weird that this little miracle is happening, and you can't really even tell until you get to see inside yourself! The lady who did the sonogram said the baby was moving quite a bit, though I couldn't feel it yet.
Here are 2 of the 3 ultrasounds I've had. The 1st one was just a little dot-the heart. Exciting for us, but maybe not so much for the rest of you, and sort of hard to see anyway.
This one is from 8 1/2 weeks, it looks like a little blob:And here is the one from today, 12 1/2 weeks, I love how you can see the fingertips above it's face!You can see the cute little profile in there too, as well as a foot and part of a leg if you look closely. It's amazing how tiny it still is though! If you want to see the ultrasounds better, just click on the picture, and it should blow up for you.
We'll keep you posted! Thanks for all the comments on the last post, I don't think we've ever gotten THAT MANY before!
