Houston, we have a heartbeat!

108 times per minute!

We couldn’t hear anything yet, but we got to see the little flashes on the screen. I’m not sure I completely comprehend it. Watching the blinking light was surreal but wonderful.

Obviously, we’re not out of the danger zone yet. I apparently have another 5.5 weeks before the riskiest time is over. But this is so much farther than anything we’ve had happen yet. Wow.

I’ll try to post one of the little pics they gave us later. For now I have to catch up on emails before we head back to see the doctor for the actual visit. Then I’ll have a due date, I guess. And I can find out whether I can still do FinCon. If not, it’s a wonderful reason to miss it.

Girl squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaal!

    Sending Prayer & happy thoughts your way! Make sure you're resting A LOT! (I literally couldn't stay awake past 8 pm when I was expecting. I was exhausted during that time.)
    Let yourself be spoiled. You deserve it! :)

    Yesterday, I had to keep reminding myself that you were in a different timezone, and that opening the blog every 30 minutes was silly. So happy at the update. Blog reader squeal!
