Pregnant after a Loss

AW: Relentlessly Awesome Ultrasound

We just got home from our second ultrasound. The first was six weeks exactly, and the little one was measuring precisely six weeks and we couldn't hear a heartbeat yet.

Today, we got to see the heart beating and we could hear a steady pumping of 154 bpm. The little bean was moving and had arm/leg buds! And we are now measuring a day ahead at 7w6d.

I am now allowing myself to get excited. Holy cats, this is real...
