12 weeks:

11 weeks:

We've had a busy couple of weeks, baby wise. Last Wednesday was a regular appointment and the doctor tried to find the heartbeat using a handheld doppler. She couldn't find it so we got another ultrasound just to make sure everything was okay. It was. The baby was right on track and the reason she couldn't hear the heartbeat is because my uterus is titled too far back right now, but that should change in the next month or so. I've attached the 11 week picture just so you could compare it to the 12 week ones that we got today! 

Today was our NT (nuchal translucency) scan. Basically they take many different measurements of the baby to see if there is a high likelihood of chromosomal abnormalities, such as down syndrome. There weren't. While they were doing the measurements we got to look at the baby forever on a screen right in front of us! It was awesome! The baby moved and waved its legs and arms. She (we call it a she for now) was slightly stubborn (taking after mom already!) and wouldn't get into the right position for some of the measurements, but eventually she did and they were able to tell us that everything looks great so far!
