Thank you everyone for sending all those lovely thoughts, prayers and well wishes our way.
I am overjoyed to report that this morning's ultrasound went perfectly, and I am quite floppy with relief.
Not only did we see the most beautiful heartbeat in the world, but we got to hear it too. I was so moved by the experience that I wept through the entire appointment. The heartbeat was robust and the doctor said it looked great. The baby was measured at 7w3d - which is exactly what I am today. It could not have gone better.
We were given an ultrasound photo which I was tempted to take a picture of and post (we don't have a working scanner), but the printout is so small and grainy I don't think it would be of any interest to anyone but D and me. But I have to tell you, it is the most gorgeous little baby you've ever seen.
I can honestly say this is the happiest day I can ever remember having in my whole life. This is all starting to feel so real.
I must admit, I am starting to get excited...
