8 weeks and 6 days old

Had my second ultra sound today, and I just couldn't believe how much baby #2 actually looks like a baby! You can already see his/her arm and leg buds. I guess I was expecting to just see a bean-shaped blob and hear the doc say it was the baby. Very cool surprise.
We also heard and saw the heartbeat. My blood pressure was 120/68, and that was a bit of a relief because last time it was 130/80, which is high for me. I had also lost a pound from being so sick this past weekend (vomiting and diarrhea from a stomach bug). Based on the baby's measurements I am still due April 3. If I don't go into labor before, we may just induce on the 31st - same as Warren!

Baby Garton #2's Yoke Sac

We went in for our 7wk ultrasound today, but little baby Garton#2 was too small to see. The doc said he could clearly see the yoke sac and everything is in the right place, but the baby is under 1/4cm, which means it won't show up on the ultrasound. We scheduled another ultrasound for Friday the 27th. He said my due date may be closer to April 6 instead of April 3rd. He thinks I may have conceived at the end of my fertile period.
