Our First Ultrasound : )

Yesterday, we got to see Baby C for the first time : ) It was so amazing! I've never seen anything so exciting/beautiful/sweet : ) We had an early ultrasound to check for multiples since my HcG was super high, but thankfully there is only one bean cooking in there! Don't get me wrong, I would feel totally blessed to be pregnant with twins, but totally overwhelmed, ha!

Everything at this point looks great! We got to see the heartbeat and much to our surprise, we even got to HEAR the heartbeat!!! At only 6 weeks!!!! Yes, my baby is an overachiever : ) I'm very proud! Baby C's heartbeat was 122 beats per minute, on the lower end for a baby which some say signals a boy, but then again we are only at 6 weeks...we shall see...

Baby C measured 6 weeks, 2 days and I was actually 6 weeks, 1 day so again...overachiever : ) The doctor was very pleased and informed us that 85% of pregnancies where the heartbeat is heard this early, are successful pregnancies : ) So, the odds are in our favor! I wasn't able to make an appointment with the OB yesterday because they closed early, but looks like I won't be able to make it back until about 9 weeks because of my schedule : ( I can't wait to see my little baby again!!!

Here is the very first picture of our sweet baby : )

  4. We got to hear our baby's heartbeat at 6 weeks too! It's so special knowing that we got to hear the heartbeat before most people! :) And yay for an early ultrasound!! Our little BOY has always had a heart rate of 150-160 so I definitely wouldn't put much thought into the heart rate wives' tales. So happy everything looks great!
