We had our first doctor's visit today, along with an ultrasound. We have a healthy, 19.6mm long baby. This is actually big for 8 weeks. So, the ultrasound machine estimated that I am almost 9 weeks along. Our baby already has arms, legs, and a tiny beating heart. If you don't see a baby in the photo, the baby is in the top of the black blob. Its head is on the left and down some. You can see the little arms. One is reaching up to the head. The legs develop after the arms, so they aren't as easy to recognize, but you can see little leg buds.
It looks like I'm due right around Christmas - Dec 20 according to the measurements taken today, and Dec 26 according to calendar calculations. I guess we're having Christmas at the hospital this year.
So far, I've been lucky. I seem to be one of the women who doesn't get "morning" sickness. But I do burp a lot, and I am very tired. If I'm not working on PBase, I'm probably asleep.
Oh yeah, and I miss sushi! I am a sushi-loving girl - http://www.pbase.com/image/18626589, and I am craving it. I guess I'll just have to order the cooked sushi.
One difficult thing to decide is what to call the baby before it is born when you don't want to know the sex. PBaby has been suggested, and I think it's kinda cute.
