My heart is busting at the seams

We saw and heard one heartbeat, one baby! We are having a baby, for real. I am beyond ecstatic. The Captain asked me "do you know what the best sound in the world is?" Me - "hearing your babies heartbeat for the first time". When she turned the audio on and we heard that sound I looked at The Captain and I told him that is the heartbeat, he got the biggest grin on his face. It was priceless. We have waited a long time to hear that sound and it is still surreal that it is happening. The heart rate was 127 BPM and the baby is measuring right on schedule at 6 weeks 5 days!

I go back to see the Dr. in a week and then I am released to a regular OB with a normal pregnancy. We may not have gotten to this point by the normal way but that is okay. I leave you with our babies second picture of his/her life. The first picture is in the blastocyst stage.

Tears over here, too! Congrats, friend!! We have that same 6 weeks picture of Carter, and I know exactly how you felt when you heard that wonderful sound for the first time. So no octuplets birth announcement this time I guess, but I will be JUST as thrilled to make you one for ONE baby! Big hugs to Auntie Erin. :)

Congratulations!!! It's the best sight ever. (I didn't hear mine yet ... jealous!) But when I sit and think that there is a little heart beating inside me that's not MINE, it takes my breath away!

Ill never forget the day we heard Trevors heartbeat. Now, I hold my hand on his chest and feel it. Motherhood is amazing-welcome to the club!

Yeah, I am so happy for you. When I got to see my spud on the screen it was amazing. I only got to hear the heartbeat last week at 17 weeks and that was an amazing moment as well. Glad you got to share that with the Captain.
