That There’s a Heartbeat

Thought I’d just cut to the chase.  The ultrasound this morning went as good as I could have asked for.  Heart was beating at 150 bpm, yolk sac looked great and baby is measuring around 7w2d or 7w3d.  Based on the first day of my LMP, I should be 7w6d today.  And based on what baby was measuring last Wednesday (5w4d), we are making very good and appropriate progress (was expecting 6w6d today if following where it measured last week).  I didn’t get to speak to a doctor yet, but the ultrasound tech said the margin of error at this point is about 3 days in either direction, so the 7w3d actually falls right there.

I was so relieved, I cried on the table when I saw the heart beating away. I’m pretty sure my heart was beating just as fast.  I should know by now to listen to my body as I’ve been really nauseas this week.  But it has fooled me before.  Thank you, ladies, for your support.  This has been a bit of a roller coaster.
