Where's my cap & gown?

I graduated!!! No more RE for me. I will not miss the almost 2 hour wait for my ultrasounds, but I have to admit I will miss my favorite nurse, just a little.

I was nervous as normal yesterday, but as soon as I saw the smile on the nurse's face I knew all was well. We got to hear the heartbeat, which made my heart melt. By my calculations I am 8 weeks, 4 days today. I was measuring ahead at 9 weeks yesterday. The difference from 6 weeks was amazing, and we could see thumper "bucking around", as the nurse put it. My husband has been calling the babe thumper ever since we were lucky to see the heartbeat thumping like crazy during our 6-week scare.
And I am so glad to have a better image than this to go through my head now.
