Here’s the first baby picture at 7 weeks, 5 days! According to the ultrasound nurse, baby’s been growing for about 6 weeks, 6 days, which moves my due date from September 16th to September 22nd instead.
The reason my first ultrasound was so early was to check that my pregnancy wasn’t ectopic, and that baby had implanted in the uterus, rather than anywhere else. The nurse wasn’t allowed to give us an actual diagnosis in that regard, but really. If it had been an ectopic, we would have been sent back to my doctor right away. Why would she have given us a picture and let us listen to and see a heartbeat if baby wasn’t viable?
The confirmation in visual form that yes, I am in fact pregnant, is really, really nice. Feeling pretty great right now.
EDIT: Doctor just called me after looking over the ultrasound to let me know that everything looked to be fine and told me that baby’s heart rate was 131 bpm. Neat. <3
