Little Baby Bean

Im just over 8 weeks pregnant now and have had 2 ultrasounds already. Last week I was having a pain on my left side and was very dizzy so I went to an urgent care and they sent me to the ER to make sure it was not a tubal pregnancy. THANKFULLY it was not and baby is right where it should be! A couple of odd things happened at the ER. One of the doctors was pretty weird. Luckily only had to deal with that one once and had a very weird ultrasound tech! Another odd thing was they couldnt find my left ovary for some reason. Tried 2 different ultrasounds and 15-20 mins and it was not showing up! Im just thankful the baby was okay and in the uterus. The baby has a very strong heart beat too. It was beating 149 bpm. On Friday I went to my first OB appt and he did another ultrasound and everything looked great still which Im so thankful for! When I am pregnant I love following Babycenter.com. It gives you weekly updates on the development of your baby. This is some of what is going on with our baby bean at 8 weeks...

Webbed fingers and toes are poking out from your baby's hands and feet, its eyelids practically cover its eyes, breathing tubes extend from its throat to the branches of its developing lungs, and its "tail" is just about gone. Your baby is about the size of a kidney bean and is constantly moving and shifting, though you still can't feel it.

Here are some pics of our new little one
