Growing a Baby, 8 Weeks 5 days

Today we had the ultrasound. We were surprised that it only lasted a few minutes. Our baby is about 1in. long and has a tail. It has a strong, healthy heartbeat of 185. We were thrilled to hear the baby finally and to be able to see it. According to the ultrasound technician, Deana is 8 weeks and 5 days along. She said that the due date according to the ultra sound will be August 4th but that the doctor will probably just leave it at August 8th. Deana got a little teary eyed when she heard the baby's heart beating. I was amazed to see such a tiny little creature growing. It made things feel a lot more real to me. We are both very excited for the rest of the pregnancy and can't wait to see more pictures in a few weeks.

This is the side view. I dont know if you can tell but
the head is on the right and the tail is to the left.
This is the same view, just a little harder to see.
