My RE fit us in this morning for a quick ultrasound. Told us to just find him in the back by the ultrasound area at 8:30AM. To not worry about an appointment. (It sounded so clandestine, but we were grateful.)
As of this morning, the spotting is still present but down to just a light brown. I figure whatever was bleeding still has to clear its way out of me, so the brown doesn't scare me so much.
When the RE saw us (huddled quietly in the back), he said he wouldn't be able to tell us anything except whether there's a heartbeat, because he doesn't deal with things this far along.
That's fine, we said. Heartbeat is all we care about at this moment.
So he did the scan.
Baby is big now!
And it has a heartbeat still (phew! I was trying not to totally freak out but was pretty nervous about that.)
Here - you take a look and see what you think...
Measuring a couple of days ahead, according to our RE. Heart rate today was 164 bpm.
So deep exhale over here on both Will's and my parts.
The three of us live to see another day.
Looking forward to the "easy" part of this. The part where I'm just moseying along, relaxing, assuming everything will go well.
Maybe that isn't realistic.
But it sure would be nice.
