News........

After a terrible week and terrible fear of losing our baby we are finally at peace. Our appointment was PERFECT today! Baby measures 9W1D exactly which is what we are today. Heartbeat was 160 BPM and s/he was kicking its legs furiously and moving all around. It actually looked like a baby this time - we could clearly see the arms, legs, spine, etc. The doc spent a lot of time checking things out and she said everything looks perfect! She also said that although anything can happen at any time, she thinks that I've "made it over the hump."

We can hardly believe it! We were so convinced that someting was terribly wrong.  Our doc was so good and said that she would tell us right away if everything was OK and then do what she needed to in terms of the U/S.  When the baby came up on the screen you could immediately notice that it was bigger.  Then we heard the most wonderful words ever - "You have a great baby.  Look, there's the heart beating."

So, here is the latest pic of Cupid - needless to say we are totally in love!


So, of course, we are celebrating this evening........MJ with a Margarita, and me with a decaf iced tea!
I think today was honestly more exciting than finding out we were pregnant. 

I do believe a ticker may finally be in order for the sidebar!

Now begins the search for an OB.....

Thanks so much for all of your support - it means more than you know!

Excellent news!!! So exciting. I agree that this is even better than a BFP: instead you got a Big Fat Healthy!!! So now not only do you get a great baby, you also get to be one of the women with very few symptoms.
