5w6d


brace yourselves!

we have a heartbeat!

"new RE dr d" warned me before the u/s that it is still very early and I should not be disappointed if we don't see one yet. well, I am FAR from disappointed. I'm shocked! I'm thrilled to tears (literally.) there it was. the tiny flutter on the screen. my hero assured me that everything is measuring as expected. the amniotic sac is positioned perfectly. this abstract concept -- pregnancy -- is now becoming a reality. my reality.

at 10:50 am this morning I fell in love.

our little one.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! And congratulations on your little miracle! I am so jealous that you already got your ultrasound. . . despite my best begging and pleading and my trip through beta hell, they will NOT consider an u/s before 6 weeks, they don't do them on Sunday, and my doctor isn't in Monday. So, we have to wait for two EXTRA days.

Ugh.

But I am so happy for you! When is your next scan?

Rebecca said...

Soooo awesome! I can't imagine how happy you are!

I'm so happy for you. I felt a bond after we both lost our dogs at the same time, and now you have this wonderful promise of new life growing inside you. Take it easy and rest up!
