First Ultrasound updated with picture!

Had our first ultrasound yesterday and it was one of the happiest days of my life (first baby here). Was so exciting to see the little peanut bouncing around! It made this whole experience suddenly feel very real! Going by my last menstrual period I was supposed to be 11weeks 4 days along, but they said the baby is measuring 12 weeks, 2 days. I'll take the extra 5 days Smile Anyway, heartbeat is strong at 165 bpm. Finally feel as though we can start telling people!

Next ultrasound is Oct 5th and we will find out the sex. Can't wait. Will try and figure out how to post the U/S pics to this post. Smile

Anyway, just wanted to share!

Congrats on a great ultrasound! My baby is measuring a little big too (although my doc didn't say exactly how big). Did they change your due date?

Thanks! They didn't change the due date. Did they change yours?

Nope, not yet. Doc says she's gonna wait until my anatomy ultrasound to see if we need to change my due date.

That first u/s really makes it real. I'm glad that your little bean was doing so well. My u/s tech said that unless the baby is more than a week off they don't change your date from the LMP date.
