We have a heartbeat

That's right, we have a, one, single, solo heartbeat with baby measuring 6w5d (I'm 7w0d today).

We were able to get some images and video (without sound) directly from the u/s machine, and Jon was able to record the u/s screen on his phone so that we can listen to the heartbeat on that video.

Of course I cried. Who wouldn't in my shoes? I'm just so relieved that there's only one baby and that Bean is measuring well. And the support from those around us is great. We posted this pic to FB last night, as Jon needed some support leading up to the appointment.


The comments from people have been amazing. We had so many people sending us positive thoughts that it really did help give me some confidence that we were going to get good news this morning.

That doesn't mean I was not, and don't continue to be, terrified that something will happen to Bean, but to see that everything looks good was a momentarily relief.

    1. Thank you. This is the first time we're starting with one (other than Firefly), so I'm hoping that's a good sign.
