We have a heartbeat....

I've been so anxious about this day. I don't know if all newly pregnant women feel this anxiety about the first ultrasound or if this a unique feeling to those of us who've struggled to get this far...

We went into Dr. K's and saw our little baby and a flickering heart on the ultrasound screen. I told Dr. K, "This is so much better than all the other ultrasounds I've had." I had tears in my eyes as we watched the little flicker on the scrren.

Dr. K gave us a few instructions and talked about when I needed to set up an appointment with my OB/GYN. Then he hugged me and shook JW's hand....and that was it. I started crying again. I love Dr. K. I've so looked forward to "graduating" from the RE but I'm going to miss him too. I want to send something to their office but what exactly says "Thanks for making our dream come true!"

Anyway, afterwards JW and I went to lunch and then I enjoyed the rest of the day snuggled on my couch with my dog watching Tivo and napping while it poured rain outside. Back to the real world tomorrow :)

OH!! And my due date is June 6th....the day before my 10 year reunion....I guess I'll be sitting it out!! Woohoo!!

Congratulations. My due date is May 26th, so I'm only about a week and a half ahead of you. We also have been struggling to conceive. Seeing that flickerign heart was truly the most amazing thing ever!

I'm very happy for you!

Oh that is sooooo wonderful. I wept like a baby after the RE left the room the first time we saw the heartbeat. It was such a relief and such an amazing sight. I am so glad you have made it to this wonderful milestone!!! Looking forward to many more!
