8 wk 5 day baby has noticible body parts ?

User Profile
is it normal for my 8 WEEK 5 day baby to have noticible body parts ? in my sonogram , you can see her head perfectly but it's bigger than her body & I can see her hands & feet a lil & she moves . could it b possible that I'm further along than I think or that description is kinda normal for a 8 weeks fetus ? I was told 8 week ultrasounds are barely wrong due to the constant growth at that stage .

Do not overthink. You cannot expect a 8 weeks fetus having a proportionate body parts just like adults.Did your sonologist tell you anything? No? Then relax.
