7 wk u/s Today

I was hoping to be able to post the u/s pic, but hubby's not home to help me scan it. Anyway, appointment today went really well. Baby's hb was 140 bpm. I have to say I was almost more in shock today than when the stick turned pink. Today made it so much more real. I'm REALLY excited now...looks like we are off to a good start with a nice strong hb!


And I have to say too that I LOVE my doctor! He scheduled my next appointment for 11 weeks and then said, "You know what. You'll be a little too early to hear the HB with a doppler at 11 wks and I want you to feel secure that your baby is fine so let's do another u/s next month." Yay!


The pelvic exam was a little painful this time and I've got VERY mild cramps right now. He warned me that there may be some spotting because the cervix is so sensitive right now. He had blood on his fingers after the exam but I have not had any spotting since. He said not to worry at all about it. He didn't mention the cramping though. I'm sure everything is fine. I saw my baby and I'm really going to try not to worry anymore...at least for today. :-)

Hubby helped with the pic. Not much to see, really. Just a cute little blob. :-)

How exciting that you saw a strong HB. Thanks for sharing the pic of your little bean, too. I agree with you 100% -- hearing the HB and seeing the scan of the little being growing in there makes everything seem so much more real! Your doc sounds awesome -- very considerate of him to schedule another ultrasound in a month. Thanks for sharing your news with us. I hope your cramping goes away soon and you feel well. Best wishes to you.

You have an adorable blob there. I think it is absolutely amazing to see and/or hear that little heartbeat.

My next u/s in on the 29th. I can't wait.

Wishing you a happy and healthy 9 months!
