This morning we had our 1st ultrasound to detect a heartbeat. Shane was excited while I on the other-hand was SO nervous & was so very nauseated. I didn't know if I was queasy from the nerves or from the morning sickness. (4 hours later & I am still queasy so I am thinking it was the m/s!)
Lucky for us, they called us back right away & 15 minutes later we had a couple of pictures & an answer!
We were able to see one sac & saw the little flicker which was the heartbeat! I was SO relieved to hear her say that there was a HB. I am measuring right on track which is 6w5d & my estimated due date is May 30th!
My RE released me today to my OB whom I am seeing tomorrow so hopefully I can get another scan scheduled in a couple weeks to hear the heartbeat. I am really sad to be leaving my RE & all her nurses who have been on this journey with us for the last year but am glad to have reached this point & be able to move on.
We are SO very cautiously excited & yet so very nervous for what is to come. We have crossed yet another hurdle but have so many more to go. At least for today we saw the HB so I am going to relax a little & enjoy the blessings of being pregnant.
Thanks again to you all for your continued prayers & support! We aren't out of the woods yet so please keep saying those prayers!
