2nd Ultrasound :: 12 Weeks, 2 Days

I’m here to report that all is well with little Bean!


We had our 2nd Ultrasound today and here are a few fun facts:

  • Bean is a little over 2 inches long
  • Bean’s fetal heart rate is perfectly normal at 162bpm and I got to hear its heartbeat for the first time – there’s no better sound than that!

  • Bean’s due date is still 11/5/2012 even though today Bean was measured with a due date of 11/6/2012 (not enough of a difference for them to change my due date from the first day of my last period.  If it’s in a 2 week window, they leave it as is…just wanted to clarify from my first ultrasound where my due date was calculated as 11/10/12 and I was writing that my due date was 11/5/2012.  I had some questions!)
  • Bean has 2 arms and 2 legs and appears to have a nice smile (see below)

The most exciting part about today (other than hearing that everything is looking great) is the fact that we set up our fetal survey ultrasound where, if Bean is in the right position, we’ll get to find out if it’s a Boy or a Girl!

That appointment is on June 11th at 8:30am…less than 7 weeks away!

Nice legs, Bean!


So fun!  Happy Wednesday!
