"Gertie" (short for Gertrude), as we are affectionately calling this one, is due November 19th, making me about 15 1/2 weeks along. No, we don't know if the baby is a girl or boy, and no, we are not planning on finding out. For some unknown reason, we have called it Gertie from the moment we found out we were expecting.
I had an ultrasound on April 15th (yes, I have been keeping this a secret for quite a while). It showed one baby with a heart rate of 160 beats/min. Here is a small video of the heart beat.
I also have a couple pictures from the ultrasound...remember, Gertie was just 8 weeks when this was done. Making him/her only a half inch long with teeny-tiny arms and legs.
