Hi Ladies! We had a very busy day...but I had my first appointment and ultrasound at 11:15am today and we saw baby's little heart beating away. I had tears just streaming down my face. I was up all night last night worried and was just so scared to take a peek! I'm so relieved now. I know we're not out of the woods, but this makes me feel so much better. My due date was moved from 12/27 to 12/25, as little bean was measuring 8w1d today (I've finally updated my tickers).

So, a very special Christmas gift...over a year in the making and over a year and a half since our loss. I go early generally, but that's okay, for now I'm totally happy to tell the world I'm due on Christmas day.

We actually decided to go public now that we saw the heart beat, so we've been telling everyone and updated our FB profiles too. At this point I just know, after seeing the baby, that I will need support in a major way should anything go wrong now...so I was cool with telling everyone.

So happy for a heartbeat and for a moved up update. My first was due on Christmas, among other dates . I am so happy that the appointment went well and you are feeling ok to go public.

Thanks, Jessi. We talked about staying quiet a while longer, but if anything happens now I really would not be able to mask how upset I'd be...so we went for it. No one even knew we were pregnant when we went through that loss and it was awful to have to go on like everything was normal. I have learned I'm not good at walking that path alone!

Also, my ob said he really, honestly believes our loss was a fluke that we caught it on an HPT and that was more of a chemical pregnancy in his opinion. He said since everything is measuring great and we had a solid, strong heartbeat he really would be very surprised if anything went wrong. His words were actually, "At this point, with the heartbeating and such, I really feel confident in saying you're in the clear." I sure hope he doesn't have to eat those words. I know stranger things have happened...but I'm going with his positivity!!

I was excited to gain two days too...pushing me over the 8 week mark! Hooray.
