Baby Bird #2 (8w0d)

All righty, I'm home from my u/s - another fantastic visit! Baby bird is growing strong and measured right on 8w0d, with a hb of 170bpm. We got another good look at his/her heartbeat, spine and the formation of the brain/head and arms and legs. Definitely more baby less blob today!
But let's be honest, totally alien baby in the picture!

I get to go back again on Jan. 6, I'll be 10w1d. I *think* they will release me then. If I had the choice I'd stay with them instead of going to my OB. I know, I know, they don't deliver babies - but I'm so attached to the staff at this point!

  7. Yay, Alison, so exciting. With that HB I'm guessing baby is really a girl temporarily masquerading as an alien. An extremely cute alien, mind you! :)
