As soon as we had the ultrasound you could see the teensie heart flickering and we were beyond thrilled. She also re-assured me that seeig the heartbeat this early was a great thing. It decreases our chances down to 3% od iscarrying she said, which was very surprising to me. Although, I know nothing in this life is a guarantee. All that to say looking at these pictures make me feel in such awe. I can't quit staring at them! That day seeing the baby was one I will also never forget. It was so surreal and I could not stop smiling.
6W1D (6 weeks 1 day)
Just the size of a piece of rice! And we saw the heartbeat flickering!
Our second ultrasound, we had to wait 4 weeks, and it felt like a whole year had gone by. I was so nervous this second time. I knew the past 4 weeks had been so critical and lots of times it either grows or doesn't. I was terrified. Plus we had to wait for forever. They also were not going to do and US, but since she couldn't find the heartbeat with the doppler thing, she let us have one because she could see the worry all over my face! Ha. I'm pretty sure Marc's whole body was shaking by this time. Finally we got to see that sweet little thing. The heart was beating great and her guestimate was around 150ish bpm.
It is now the size of a strawberry! I could not believe the growth in 4 weeks. Seriously such a miracle.
I'm still so humbled about everything. Thank you all for rejoicing with us and following our journey. we are so grateful and our hearts feel like they could burst!
