We have a heartbeat! great news!

Went in for my first ultrasound today and wasn't even letting myself hope that things were going to be okay. I was prepared for the worst, and wouldn't even look at the screen at first. Then we saw that beautiful tiny body and its strong heart and my husband and I just started crying. I feel so blessed. Still doesn't feel quite real. I'm letting myself do more pregnancy things now (getting out maternity clothes bin, looking at prenatal yoga classes) especially since I discovered that I am 5 days further along than I had thought (I guessed that I was 8 weeks 3 days and it turns out I'm 9 weeks 1 day. Even closer to the 2nd trimester!).
I still don't feel completely relaxed and I wonder if I ever will, but I feel so much better. I'm already past my scary dates for last 2 pregnancies, so the next date I've latched onto is the 2nd trimester start (13 or 14 weeks, depending on who you talk to), then probably the NT test and so on. Just so glad to still be here!

That's great Rebecca! :) It really does change your view when you go from 8w to 9w overnight.

So happy for you! What a relief seeing the hb! How nice, too, to be even closer to the 2T than you thought. At my appointment last week the baby was measuring 5 days ahead for an EDD of 3/6, but I'm keeping my original ticker for now. What a wonderful appointment for you and DH. Yay!!!
