I failed to mention a couple of weeks ago that I had my first ultrasound. And if I was motivated at all, I would have scanned a photo of the little bean to post. But honestly, it doesn't look like much :)
I had my first ulstrasound at 7w6d. We were placed in a room with three other ultrasound machines. All were confirmation ultrasounds. All were before us. While my husband was bouncing on the chair with excitement, I was holding back tears and trying not to cry. All i could think of was that something was wrong. We heard three other couples receive good news. We heard three other sets of heartbeats before Dr. P got to our area. And the whole time, I wanted to cry.
I wish every day that my past miscarriage didn't have such an effect on me. But all that was going through my head was that I needed to prepare myself for the worst. I didn't want to go into the ultrasound happy & elated because I didn't want to get my hopes up.
But fortunately ... everything went well. :) I saw the heartbeat on the screen before Dr. P could mention it and instantly burst into tears. It was so fast! The baby was measuring just two days behind where I was, and Dr. P reassured me this was perfectly normal. Heart beat was 162! So strong! All in all, everything looked perfect and Dr. P let me "graduate" to a normal OB.
I'm 9w2d now, so obviously a little late on this update. But so far, everything is going well!
