It went great. I will scan the pics later to share. 1 baby - HB of 155...and even a little wiggling.. It is my 1st official good u/s. I watched the screen like the way a child watches a horror movie..hands over my eyes, with my fingers split just far enough to peek thru. It seemed like she spent FOREVER looking at my ovaries & uterus first...and then I saw it - a little flutter on the screen & immediately went to sobbing. I think I scared the techs. I cried all the way through it. The tech running the machine was soooo nice, she even flipped it over & did a 4-D u/s. The printed pics aren't great - because the baby is sooooo small on the picture, but on the screen she got so close up & it's amazing what you can see even this early. The regular u/s pics are actually a little clearer - although also tiny. The baby measures 1.37 CM crown/rump length & they said I am due April 1st according to that as well, which I KNOW should be off because we didn't even have sex for 12 days over "O" time....so it should be a littel one way or the other - but no matter - as long as everything looks good - I am elated. When we left & were walking down the hallway together Joel grabbed my hand gave me a huge smile & jumped up in the air & clicked his heels. It was adorable & ridiculous all at once. After we talked about how we realize we aren't even a quarter of the way there yet - but at least we truly, absolutely, have HOPE....which is a hard thing to conjure up in two very hurt hearts...(and now we have 3 hearts...it's was AMAZING to hear that today).

I am sorry to gush - but today has been so awesome - better than any day I have had in a very long time.

I know I already replied over on the April DDC board, but I can't help it - I wanted to congratulate you over here, too. It is so inspiring to see someone who has experienced loss get to see the heartbeat of their baby - you give me hope!!! This is truly such wonderful news!!!

Congratulations Beckie!!! I am crying right now after hearing your news. I am so happy for you!!! You and Joel deserve this so much!!!

I remember when we went in at 7w with this baby and how scared we were. Seeing the hb is the best thing in the world. I had the same reaction that you did. DH was crying too!!! We were both all smiles after. Couldn't stop us for nothing!!!

Congratulations again!!! Please keep us posted on your progress!!!
