Second Ultrasound

U/S from 12/19/16: Heartbeat (178 bpm) seen,
small SCH superior to (above) fetus; measuring at 8 weeks, 2 days; 
CRL: 17.8 mm, Yolk Sac: 3.7 mm; SCH: 2.2 x 0.7 x 1.9 CM
Yesterday we had our second U/S (at 8 weeks, 2 days). The tech found the baby instantly and we could see the heart beating away (at 178 bpm). The fetus is starting to resemble a baby and we could see the limb buds developing, our little gummy bear. :) The tech showed us the head, and the black circle where the brain is developing. She also showed us the umbilical cord.

It's amazing how much Baby Nelson has grown in just over a week. S/he is still relatively small (the size of a raspberry), but is still bigger than the last U/S (the size of a blueberry)!

The SCH is still there, and is actually a little larger than it was last time. I'm waiting to hear back from my doctor to see if he is at all concerned. If everything looks good, it's possible that he will officially release me into the care of my OB/GYN tomorrow!
