Houston, we have a HEARTBEAT! 176 bpm, she did a cute little bum wiggle and then WAVED at us! Cheeky little cutie. She's healthy, she's happy, and she's a singleton (phew! I was actually pretty worried there were TWO in there!)

Hip hip HOORAY for Baby Bug!!! And I'm so glad she waved at me... it was like, "Hi momma! I'm here! I'm not going anywhere. Calm down on the stress, will ya?" Perfection. LOOOOVED hearing that little heart goin' to town.

I'm on cloud nine!

Yay!!! I am so excited for you! Heartbeats are the epitome of a miracle in my book. How can something so small have that complex of a system? Congratulations momma!

Thanks girls! I'm still beaming. I had one of my worst puke-fests last night (TMI sorry) but I was SOOOO happy about it! LOL! I was like, "YAY! I saw a heartbeat! *blech* YAAAAY!" lol!

I'm just on cloud nine... so relieved, and so happy, and so grateful to have this little one in my arms soon.

OH! And I forgot to mention! My due date is STILL March 30th. Even though the ultrasound has Baby Bug measuring at due on April 1st. My midwife said that she's probably gonna be a little on the small side right now due to all the stress I've been under, but that she ought to grow just fine. She LOVED that heartbeat too. We were ALL excited. Which is great... this midwife wasn't my provider for my loss, just knew about it because I told her. I love midwives... she was so compassionate. She rocks.

OH! And I'd lost weight since my last visit with them (2 months ago, for my annual). Nearly 10 lbs. I don't know if it's because of nausea and vomiting, but I know it's okay in the first tri. I also know that it was likely due to my healthy eating BEFORE I was pregnant. It just makes me happy, because I was down to the weight I wanted to be before I got p/g. I wanted to be between 125 and 130.... and I AM! That makes me feel better about it too. It's a stupid, personal, "I just want this" kind of thing... but I'm really excited about it anyway. HOORAY for my new healthy body! I lost around 25-35 lbs in the last year (down from 160)... Which puts me at my rough goal weight. I'm just so excited. Yesterday was a really good day.

Hooray for heartbeats! We all know how relieving and reassuring it is to see them. I could breathe when I first saw Lily at 7 weeks. She was measuring small for the first few ultrasounds. She's right on track now.

I'm still dancing. lol Or I would be if moving wasn't all sorts of painful.

I'm so much better about the morning sickness after the ultrasound. I place the picture strategically so I can see it when I'm headed to the bathroom, so I can have that visual reminder of why I'm puking.

Oh Brittanie! WHAT a good idea! I'm going to do that... I puked again this morning, at the office... it was one of the really super violent emergency kind of pukes. It was BAAAAAD... but when I got to my desk, there was my ultrasound photo. Bliss. I jokingly told my boss, "Baby doesn't want me to vacuum the front office anymore." He laughed and said, "You tell that baby she better get used to it!" Heh. I love my job.
