First Ultrasound

I am happy to report that all went well today!! I am beyond excited and giddy right now. Needless to say, I was anxious before the appointment - up an hour earlier than normal. We were able to have our appointment with Dr. A, which was beyond great. Once the wand was in place it just took a moment for him to find what he was looking for. As soon as we spotted the sac we could see there was someone inside it with a beating heart! J spotted it right away. Dr. A said he was surprised that we were at that point...he didn't really expect it today. He said I am 6w1d and the baby was measuring at 6weeks so we are right on time. I've never had that before. For the two pregnancies where we did get to an ultrasound we measured 2 weeks behind.

I have definitely let out a sigh of relief for today...I am going to do my best to enjoy the moment and not get too carried away one way or the other.
