We had our second ultrasound yesterday! The baby measured perfectly at 9 weeks with a heartbeat of 171. We were really excited to see the baby wave it's little arm at us.
First of all, it is so cool to see these photos. I am admiring my little one vicariously through your pics! As for heart rate, 160s is normal for either gender this early in pregnancy. I think the old wives' tale says faster heartbeat = girl, but I'm not certain and I've never heard anyone confirm a hunch based on that alone. I do remember that my DS2 stayed consistently at 145 throughout preg...
I am:) I'm on a site that prides itself on nub guessing:) LOL Can you post a pic?
Nat, do you think that little nub is indicative of a girl?
I'm going to get "nub" pic next week. I'm an ultrasound tech so I've just been checking myself when I have a chance and from what I can see it looks more so like a girl with the angle more parallel to the spine. I'll grab a pic next week when I'm back at work!
