|Baby Mitchell at 6weeks 2 days|
Anyways, back to my precious Baby M. The black circle is the gestational sac which contains the amniotic fluid and the baby. You can kind of see a whitish blob in the center of the gestational sac, that is the yolk sac which provides nutrients to the baby until the placenta is fully developed. And lastly, above the yolk sac is a much smaller whitish blob that is the baby. It is currently only 2mm big but when I held my breath I could see it flickering which was it's heart beating! How unbelievable is that?? I think it's starting to sink in now that there really is a little baby in there and I am already SO in love with it.
Mike and I will go back to see Dr. Lee next Tuesday for another ultrasound. I will be 7weeks 3days and Dr. Lee thinks we will be able to hear the heart beat by then! I can't wait!
