8w 1d

I still cannot believe I'm typing this... We saw Baby Swann again today {YAY!} and it is still just so surreal that we are finally going to be parents after four long years of infertility!

Last night I was driving myself batties I was so anxious for the appointment today. To see if we were still indeed pregnant or if our baby had been taken from us...

It was so beautiful seeing our baby's heart beating away and then to hear it. That magnificent sound! Our baby, bigger. A lot bigger! Looking like an actual baby! It even had an __________ eye! Can't remember what the term was, Charles does but he's asleep. Pretty much, the Dr said that is the eye socket so it's pretty neat to see our baby developing little bits at a time!

I'm 8w 1d according to Ovulation date and baby's last dating ultrasound which measured spot on and this time baby measured three days ahead at 8w 4d which would also change our due date from November 3 to October 31... We'll see if baby holds true to this over time before changing anything as I know when I ovulated and this does not match up. :-)

I was a bit bummed though to learn that I had gained 4 pounds in three weeks! I mean, isn't vomiting supposed to make you loose weight first??? Oh well. At least baby showed me that they are taking the brunt of it by measuring ahead. :-) All for the baby!!!!

So here's our baby's latest photo and video moment!

What a wonderful feeling! It's very common for babies to measure a little ahead or a little behind, so don't worry too much about changing your due date. Baby Swann will appear when he/she is ready; there's no calendar in there, LOL!
