Had my u/s yesterday

So I got called on Thu to let me know my u/s was on Mon. Wohoo! Thu, Fri, Sat and Sun I was super pumped and excited and couldn't wait. Monday morning I woke up with a feeling of total and utter dread. Then I went to the bathroom and there was a hint of brown mixed in with my cm. Panic attack. I figured I'd go to my u/s and there would be no heart beat and just an empty sac (because I'm that kind of an upbeat person). I got there, the tech was the same one I'd had during my m/c so she was very sympathetic of my situation, and did not make me wait very long to hear her say that there was a little baby in there with a little heartbeat. Biggrin Sooooooooo relieved. Baby was measuring right on track at 7 weeks, and had a heart rate of 163, and I got to see it flickering. She did it abdominally but my bladder wasn't super full, so it was a little tiny, but I could still see it, and now I can relax just a little. I can't wait until my 12 week appt next month, once I hear the hb on the doppler then I can really breathe easy.

So here is my tiny little viable bean!

That is awesome Amber. I feel your pain on waiting until the next appointment. But it will be totally worth the wait when we can hear their little hearts on the doppler.

So excited for you! It's such a relief to see the heartbeat! SmileSmile my next ultrasound is on the 27th, which puts me at 7w2d, so I'm happy to hear I should see the heaerbeat. With my son I didn't have an ultrasound until 10 weeks, so I never knew when you should expect to see the heartbeat.

YAY Amber! I feel like I hold my breath untl that U/S and then can breathe a big sigh of relief.
Glad that at least when you had the brown CM you had the U/S the same day- and didnt have such a long wait!!
I feel like the weeks waiting for that U/S and the HB are the longest weeks ever.
Thats one good lookin lil bean! Looks like his/her brothers doesn't it? :):)

Its so wonderful to hear that heart beating of beeping as my 5yo says.

I can't wait for mine, just a little less than 2 weeks, I so want to relax already.
