So one it is. 17mm long. Measuring 8weeks 2 days, which is 2-3 days ahead. I'm not sure how accurate the dating is at this age, but I'm hoping I'm not going to have another monster baby like Jambin was - 4860g, or 10lbs 11 and a half oz. I'm trying for a VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarean), and I would prefer not to be squeezing out an 11-pounder.
1. Our Deck.
Only partially finished in the picture below, but currently is fully surrounded by handrails that will prevent small children dropping off the precipice. It still needs a roof, which should be going on sometime over the next few weeks.
2. I'm 8 weeks pregnant with baby #2!!
Looks like our IVF cycle this time around worked. I got the positive blood test around 4 weeks ago, and my beta HCG was 271, which my fertility specialist's office described as "strongly positive". It was definitely much higher than my blood test with Jambin, at around the same timeframe. I have my first obstetrician appointment tomorrow - hopefully he'll do a scan so that we can confirm there's only one baby growing in there.
