Well I had my first "real" ultrasound today...and holy smokes, there's a baby in there!  A baby with a heartbeat, measuring 9 weeks.  :smileyhappy:  I'm so relieved.  I was so nervous I thought I would cry right there on the table!  DH was nervous too.  He said he was nervous, then relieved, then nervous again (now that the reality that he's going to be a father of 2 is setting in lol).  It's nice that now I can somewhat enjoy the fact that I'm feeling a little better, instead of worrying that it means something is wrong.  Next I will be setting up my NT scan and trying to find out if MaterniT21 is covered by my insurance or not.  Yay!

Yay! So glad your nervousness could be put to rest! It's so scary between appts when we feel something may be going wrong.

congrats on a happy u/s! careful when you find out if the NT scan is "covered." i was told it was, but i've received over $400 in bills so far from that scan. good luck!
