Well, yesterday (12/27) I went for an ultrasound again with my doc and he got a due date of August 6th! Not the EDD the nurse gave me which was August 10th. I knew the due date wasn't right. I had a feeling my earlier O date was the correct one and he confirmed it without ever even knowing I had 2 O dates in mind. He said you are 8 weeks 2 days and I was like I was RIGHT! My earlier O date was right! I said something about it and he said well women know their bodies bettter than anything so I trust that you knew when you concieved. So 8w3d today and it's amazing how pregnant I look.This is #2 and with DD I wasn't this big til at least 5 months.
He told me I could stop the progesterone now or wait til ten weeks. I decided to stop now because I feel good about it and I think I'm going to be ok without it now. I took it for almost 8.5 weeks and we saw a beautiful heartbeat just flickering away on the screen! Also, I feel very pregnant with lots of symptoms to boost.
I'll include my belly pic from yesterday PM attached. This pregnancy sure is going by a lot faster than my pregnancy with DD. When I was preggo with her, the days just seemed to drag on and on. And here I am with #2, almost 9 weeks so fast!
I hope everyone else is feeling good and things are going well. I'm glad to finally be here and confident about it. I think it's a girl and DH thinks it's a boy. My next ultrasound will be at 18 weeks if all goes well (so around March 5). I'll be excited to see the baby again and see what we're having!
Good luck to all and remember faith over fear!!
