External ultrasound image at 8 wks (approx. 5 wks from ovulation) hearbeat at 180 bpm.  Although this image was taken one week after the previous internal ultrasound the measurements showed 8 wks instead of the 8.5 expected.  Ultrasound tech indicated that this could be the difference between the internal and external ultrasounds and their measurement accuracy.

External ultrasound image at 9 wks gestation (approx. 6 wks from ovulation) heartbeat at 177, embryo is almost 1 inch in length.  Which, according to my nurse is “larger than a gummy bear”.  This ultrasound was the first time we were able to see movement besides the heartbeat.  So I am going to call this the first picture of “Baby Wiggles”.
