I had my first ultra sound appointment and we saw a heartbeat!  OMG, it was so amazing, like it was waving at me.  I really wasn't getting my hopes up and didn't expect much today but when I saw the flutter on the screen, I gasped and said what's that right there and she said oh, there it is, there's the heartbeat.  I cried.  I'm just totally totally amazed.  I mean, after three miscarriages in a row in less than 2 years - who would have expected this?!  I just thought I was doomed, I was done, ya know.  It's so amazing that not only did the sac show growth, but a heartbeat too!  I was able to bring home like five pictures and I just keep staring at them.  I'm gonna have a baby again!  This is my baby.  This is supposed to be my baby.  All along, I knew I was meant to have one more.  And the weird thing is, I've felt like I've been getting to know this baby for the past 18+ months, like we know each other already, like I've known all along that this is meant to be, girl or boy.  So is it Ok to get excited now?  LOL 

EDD by my calculations 11/2/09

EDD by ultra sound, 11/5/09

Will probably be mid to late October scheduled c-section though.

How exciting!!  We have an adopted son and when we went to hear the heartbeat we actually brought a small tape recorder.  Our son is now 3 and we still listen to his heartbeat on the recorder...it is truly the most amazing experience.  Prayers for you and your little angel.....Keep me posted!!
