We have a heartbeat!

Yesterday we got to see the baby's heartbeat for the first time. It was amazing! It was this perfectly round little flashing light and the baby has grown so much in the last 2 weeks!

My doctor told me that now that we've seen the heartbeat, the chance of miscarriage is only about 3%, compared to the 20% or so before the heartbeat. We feel like it's safe to start telling people, so we'll tell our parents this weekend. Our next appointment is in 4 weeks and we will hear the heartbeat then.

Here's the ultrasound from yesterday at 7 weeks 5 days. The baby's head is on the left, and I think the umbilical cord is on the bottom right. The yolk sac is behind the baby, so you can't see it.

Did you cry? I cried when I first heard and saw Kylie's heartbeat. As if, at that moment, it offically became real. So exciting. Very happy for you mommas!

Mrs. G- I got a little teary, but I held it together. Mostly I was just in awe.

Mrs. B- I will be stalking your blog!
