I called the birthing center today and talked to the midwife about how I didn't get any real confirmation last time and my lack of symptoms not helping. I told her it would really put my mind at ease to see or hear the heartbeat. At first she said for me to come in Monday. Then she called back and said she could get me in today. Yes!
As soon as she put it on my stomach I could see it's little heart flickering. It was so great! The yolk sac was there but less evident so I guess that's good too. Next appt is still May 28. Will probably do another ultrasound then. She said their dopplers aren't that great for early listening, that's ok with me. My due date is officially Dec 24, not Dec 21 adjusted for my cycles.
7 weeks on the nose- baby measuring 6 weeks 5 days or 6 weeks 4 days, depending on the angle.
for comparison, this was my ultrasound a week ago today! So much bigger today.
