Ultrasound #4

Baby Labrador at 8 weeks, 4 days

Today's ultrasound shows us that Baby Labrador is now 21 mm long! Baby has grown 8 mm in just a week. Dr. Dourron pointed out that the baby's head is located at the bottom of the fetal shape in the picture. He reminded me that with each week that passes, the chance of miscarriage decreases. He also advised me to make an appointment with my regular OB/GYN for two or three weeks from now.

I complained about my ever increasing morning sickness, and I was given a device called Prima bella. At first I was skeptical, but after feeling pretty good most of the day, and into the evening which has been my worst time of the day, I'm beginning to think this is the ticket. The vibration is kind of annoying, but I prefer it to being sick.

Late in the afternoon the nurse called to tell me that my progesterone has increased to 50 from last week's level of 36.

Everything is looking good, and I know I'm blessed.


  1. Congrats on your little miracle baby! Glad to see all is going well.

  2. Continued good news is the BEST kind.

    I love seeing your little bean flourishing in there.

    I would have been skeptical of the PrimaBella, too, but all that matters is that it seems to be working. YAY, PrimaBella! YAY, YOU!

  3. Good news, Joannah! I am so happy for you!

  4. Glad to read you and your baby are doing well. Our God is an awesome God, isn't He? Wishing you the best.

  5. Horray, horray! So glad that all is well with you and baby! When is next u/s (so I know when to properly stalk next week)?

  6. Next ultrasound is Wednesday. :)

  7. I love seeing the pictures each week. God is Good! Glad you are feeling better. What a blessing this baby is to all of us!
