Seven Weeks: Heartbeat!
Thank you to everyone who offered their thoughts and support after Saturday's bleeding scare. I really appreciate it.
My weekend was spent in suspended animation. We didn't end up going to the haunted hayride or anyplace for that matter. I spent most of it firmly planted on the couch, hoping to not temp fate. My sense of smell was crazy and I got mad at my husband for eating peanut butter.
We got in to the doctor's office today and it was SO busy. Waiting was pretty weird. DH told me he wants to tell his boss I'm pregnant because "people are asking questions" and I'm trying to shush him because I don't even know if I'm still pregnant AND we're in a fertility doctor's waiting room and I don't want to rub it in for the others around us.
Anyway, I finally get wanded and there it is, my little sac. Looking good.* Before I knew it there was a sound coming from the screen.
Buh bump. Buh bump. Buh bump.
Wow, there is a heart beating inside me! It was probably the coolest thing in the whole wide world. The nurse said the heartbeat is 120 bpm which (according to a quick Dr. Googling) is normal.
*The ultrasound dated my pregnancy as 6 weeks, 4 days even though I am 7 weeks today. Last week I was measuring 1-2 days behing and now I'm measuring a full 3 days behind. The nurse said not to worry but I'm still a little concerned. I really hope my little guy catches up some by next week.
Does anyone have any early ultrasound measurement stories to help ease my mind?
