There is a heartbeat....sigh

Yes, the heartbeat was there, tiny, but there. Beating away at 120.6 bpm. At first, I couldn't see it. I saw a black hole, it appeared to have nothing in it. My doctor was quiet, I asked is there something there. Then the nurse pointed out the heart, flickering away. Ahhh, a loud sigh came out.

The CRL measurement is 4.7 mm. My cervix looked good. And yes, my left ovary was huge. No wonder, I've been having twinges of pain.

He actually gave me a due date of Aug. 6. I can't even think that far in advance. Will I make it. I pray that I do, that my baby does. PLEASE!

I have one more appointment with him, my exit appointment, then I will move on to my OB and the MFM doctor. And now I'll be taking Lovenox instead of Heparin. Go figure. I don't really care as long as everything turns out OK.

Thanks for ALL of your well wishes and support!

I'm so happy for you. I've been wondering about your results all day today...funny that I don't know you in person at all, but you've been on my mind!
I know after all you've been through, you probably have so many emotions. For me, after I lost one of my twins, I couldn't believe that Alia was really going to be born alive and well until I actually saw her...maybe it's the same for you?
Stay positive and be good to yourself!) Congratulations!

I'm so thrilled for you! This is wonderful news! Congratulations! You and your family will be in my prayers (as always). I look forward to meeting this little one at church when we move home! (If you aren't totally creeped out that I found you and am following along, that is!)

Hooray! What an amazing day. I know it's hard, but enjoy the day. And take one foot in front of the other - that's all we can do for now.
