Pregnant after IF

1st ultrasound, heartbeat & graduation

Hi Ladies

Today was our first ultrasound and we saw one perfect little heartbeat! They said my spotting was caused by some pockets of old blood left in my uterus and I can continue to spot up until the 10-12 week and it be perfectly fine as long as it is not red. They also said that since we saw the heartbeat the chance of miscarriage drops to 6%. What a relief - now I am looking forward to enjoying this pregnancy!!! Since they saw the heartbeat I also graduated to the OB :)

I can't wait to spend the next happy & healthy eight months with you wonderful ladies!!
