Disbelief-


Say Hello to Nombie <3


We have a gestational sac.


We have a fetal pole.


We have a yolk sac.



And at 6 weeks & 2 days... we even have a heartbeat @ 115bpm.


We not only saw it... we even heard it.


It was so amazing, I cried.






I can't pretend I'm not pregnant anymore.

I know we're still not out of the woods, it's still early, the heartbeat just started... so I'm not going to get excited just yet. But we've never made it to a heartbeat before, and I'm giddy despite myself. An actual heartbeat! It was so beautiful.

We go back for another ultrasound next week... really hoping this little one stays with us, and next weeks shows good growth and an even stronger heartbeat. I'm going to be so absolutely devastated if we lose it.
