A heartbeat!!

Yesterday we drove into the city, surprisingly quite relaxed considering we were about to find out whether we had a successful pregnancy or not.  After my kinesiology session though, I have been nothing but confident, so amazingly, for the most part, I wasn't worried.  At least on the surface!

It was amazing!!  The first thing the OB said was "there is the pregnancy!" and I was "where, where, where??!!"  And then she pointed out the heartbeat.  It was incredible.  Later she changed the scan view so we were able to see the heart beating in colour.  Just phenomenal.  To think something the size of a pea, has this amazing heartbeat.

We are so relieved and happy and we finally feel like we are really on our way to being parents.  We have to go back next week for another scan because bubby was positioned in such a way that Louise couldn't get a proper measurement and he seemed to be measuring too small for 7 weeks.  He was snuggled right up in the very corner of the sac.  But she is sure that it was just the angle because his heart is beating exactly as it should be for 7 weeks.

So, there is still a slight worry in my head about his sizing.  There always seems to be something!!!  But I'm taking the same approach as I've had for the last week.  Trust!  We have a heartbeat.  We have our baby growing away and snuggled into my body.

I am so relieved, and grateful.

Thank you everyone for all your prayers and support.  I know we still have a ways to go before we are safe, but right now, it feels wonderful!

Love and Light
