This afternoon I went in for an US to detect a heartbeat of "Baby T". I was saying many prayers on my way to the Dr's office that we see a strong, healthy heartbeat & guess what? God answered.
We have a heartbeat - 107 bpm :)
She also pointed out something else amazing. If you look closely, you can see 2 black circles on the embryo which are the optic vessels & will later become the babies eyes. The heart is the darker white spot located right underneath. It was absolutely amazing watching a heart beat on a little blob that is only 5mm long.
Unfortunately, I don't see my OB until July 9th when I will be 10 weeks. I was told I can come in any time to have an US done (out of pocket of course) just to ease any fears so I just might go back in 2 weeks. I do have access to US at work too so knowing me, I just might have to do some periodic "self-checks" just to make sure we still have a heartbeat.
As far as how I am feeling - my morning sickness really kicked in these past few days & carbs have become my new best friend. As long as I eat crackers before I get out of bed in the morning & eat every 2 hours I do pretty good but if I go past 2 hours I start to feel really ill. Not going to complain though. I am just so very thankful to have gotten to this point at all!
