7w4d - First Scan!

Our little grain of rice has a heartbeat! I'm over the moon!! And he/she is in the uterus (not an ectopic as I feared). Oh happy day! I've never been so relieved in my life!

The wait for this scan was excruciating to say the least. DP was in the room for the scan & almost shed a tear. I was pretty close myself but the doctor was so rushed with it that we didn't really have much time to get emotional. The little heart was flickering away. Baby was just a blob but the best kind of blob I've ever seen!

I am still in shock. I can't believe I'm finally here. I know the journey's not over & nothing is a given.. but I'm just going to think positive & enjoy this experience. It's an experience I NEVER thought I'd have in this lifetime. I'm lost for words.. so I'll leave you with these pics. Life is good :)

NB: The baby is that bean-shaped white blob under the circle. The circle is the yolk sac. The black area is fluid.
