Today we heard a heartbeat. We watched our tiny little baby flickering on the screen and listened to its song – a hymn of horses marching. The sweetest march. My husband grabbed my hand, and I watched his eyes light up in wonder.
I’m measuring 6+1 and the baby’s heart was beating at 111 bpm. From what I can find online, this is within the normal range. Also I requested a beta yesterday (because I am a paranoid lunatic), which came back at a whopping 40,598. I haven’t seen any spotting since Friday, and the morning sickness is coming on strong.
So, it’s safe to say, I’m feeling positive. Things are looking good. We’ll be telling the family in person tomorrow, and I couldn’t be more thankful.
