And we saw the most beautiful little baby and heartbeat! Baby is measuring 7w5d so right on target. I think the exact measure was 1.5 cm CRL. The gestational sac looked good as well. The hearbeat was 162 bpm, also normal. She also switched on something and we could hear the heartbeat! It was absolutely amazing to hear that whooshing sound. Dh was amazed as well. He got to see the screen before I did and it was wonderful to look up and see his smile and know that baby was okay.

I have pictures but I will have to find a way to scan them. I may need to find some way to mark them though because the yolk sac on there makes it look like baby has two heads so I need to draw baby's outline on there! I guess it is normal to see the yolk sac on there so big? I didn't ask my RE about it but she said everything looked normal so I guess it is.

I am so excited...I'm really starting to believe this is my sticky one that I will be holding in May. You can't imagine how relieved I am to have seen a healthy little baby on that ultrasound. I will post more but I've got to get to work now!

As for the yolk sac, well, Reeses' was still pretty large at our u/s (pic here) I was also 7w5d. My Dr said it was normal.


YAY!!!! I'm so happy for you!!

Yay! I am so glad that you got great news today. And hearing that hb for the first time is amazing and of course seeing dh's face light up is an added bonus. About the yolk sac, yes that is completely normal at this point. At the next u/s you will just see the baby all big and bouncing around in there. I am so happy for you!! Cant wait to see those pics.
