Words cannot describe how happy today’s doctor appointment left us. Today we saw The Bean for the first time and heard his/her heartbeat! Music to my ears 😉 The tech measured the beats and The Bean has a strong healthy heart beat for a 7 week old.
Yes we found out I am 7 weeks, still really early. Today we also decided to go public with the news. Most people wait until 12 weeks to reach a point where miscarriage is at a lower possibility. A dear friend, Shauna, told me to just go for it. That no matter what happens it is better to have the support of family & friends, and I totally agree! I will be sending this blog out to family and friends. This little blog is just so much easier than sending out 30 different emails 😉
So The Bean is healthy and the size of a centimeter! The small round looking thing to the bottom right attached to the baby is actually not a manatee tail (what I dubbed it), it is the yolk sac- what is feeding the baby…. because Lord knows Taco Bell is not what this child needs to grow! Hopefully this crazy carb/ greasy food phase is exactly that….a phase!
You cannot see it, but you could see the heart beat, so amazing!
