My Pregnancy at 8 Weeks (2 Months)

We've made it to 8 weeks with barely any change in our regular routine. Although, I am starting to feel nauseous and a bit lethargic. Still working out as usual, and actually beginning to wonder when the symptoms are going to start? Its my first baby, after all, so I am excited for this whole experience. We finally had our first visit with the doctor. We were nervous and excited all together. We were hoping the doctor only had good things to say and we would finally see the heartbeat that we heard would be noticeable at this time. We wanted to see that there really was something going on inside me. Sure enough, just as we hoped, the doctor said everything looked great. We got to see our first ultrasound, including that little itty bitty heartbeat.  Below is the pic of our first ultrasound.  The pic to the left shows the measurement of the baby, the one on the right just shows the baby.  And, for those of you who can't see it, the baby's head is to the left, torso to the right.

The baby was 1.5 cm long and looking on par in size with when we thought the baby would have been conceived. Having experienced that doctor's appointment made everything very real to Dana and I. We were happy, proud, and so excited. To celebrate, we treated ourselves to Joe's Crab Shack for some yummy crab.  Below is my first pregnant belly picture.  Of course, I'm sure you can't really see much, but the rounding of my belly has begun just a little bit.  Its enough that I notice it, but Dana doesn't see it.
