The Most Beautiful Sound of All

After this morning, I'm convinced.

You all know what you're talking about, all of you who have travelled this road and had the lucky BFPs. You are right. And now I believe you.

The most beautiful sound of all is a baby's heartbeat. I was completely overwhelmed; this morning, we got to hear our baby's heartbeat.

Heart rate = 164 BPM
Crown to rump measurement = 2.05 cms
Approximate age = 8 wks 4 days (I calculate 9 weeks today, my other doc said 9 weeks 2 days; we're still in normal ranges for size and heartrate)

And it finally hit home.

I'm pregnant. And I am grateful beyond belief to have gotten this far.

Isn't it!?! It's so amazing - I didn't think I'd react to it the way that I did when I heard it either, but tears immediately came to my eyes and my husband about passed out. Just amazing.

Oh hon, I'm SO happy for you!!

I still have a slight glimmer of hope, that I too one day will hear that!

I teared up a bit the first time I heard it.

It was also a slightly odd feeling because it really hit home that there was some else living in me.

So cool!
