Our First Ultrasound

Today Andrew and I went to the doctor for our first ultrasound. We thought that we were 8 weeks along but according to the ultrasound, we are only 6 weeks along. We also wanted twins... too bad.... there's only one baby in there. I still think the other baby may be hiding ;). The baby's heart beat was also at 82 which is usually supposed to be around 120 at 6 weeks. The ultrasound tech said that this may be due to the fact that if we are only 6 weeks along then the heart may have just started beating therefore it has a long way to go and will hopefully catch up by the end of the week. To be safe, the doctor requested that I come back in two weeks to check on the baby's growth and heart beat. For now all I can do is wait, eat right, and get lots of rest so that my body can focus on my baby. Let's all pray for good news on October the 6th.

Here is the video... If you look closely you can see the heart beating. Andrew is convinced that it is a boy ;)
