Just came from my first prenatal. Saw the heartbeat, and the shrimp-like creature that is the baby right now. Measuring right on at 8w6d. Dh and I are both pretty goofy right now. All other symptoms aside, it finally feels "real."

Congrats on your shrimp! It's so exciting to have that "real" feeling! I'm still waiting on mine this time around.

Hopefully, I will feel this way tomorrow afternoon. My appointment will be then, and I'll be 8 wks, 1 day.

Too funny. After my u/s, I looked at DH and said, "look honey we have a baby blob!".

Hooray for the shrimp (and the blob). We had a "peanut" with DS. :-) I think the teddy-graham ones are super cute too.

Had mine today, and the dr. referred to the baby as a "teddy bear!" I'd never thought of it that way, until I saw this little one on the screen.
