Ultrasound Update

The ultrasound tech was able to see the gestational sac, as well as the baby and yolk sac and even the little heart beating through my abdomen. Yahoo Something she was really surprised about. She then did a trans. vag. as well to get an even better look at things. The heart rate measured at about 117 :pinkelephant:, but she said at this stage she was surprised to see anything, and that it is really hard to get a good reading with how small the heart is. She explained that me breathing could have interrupted the reading, or if her hand shook eve a tiny bit. She said that if they were to do another one in a couple of weeks it would be that much easier to get a reading Smile SO, all good news. Everything looks healthy, baby is where its supposed to be, and its tiny little heart is beating away :cloud9:
