Dragon Baby

162 Beats per minute!!

Our Dragon baby is ALIVE!! Dating at 9 weeks exactly (2 days ahead of schedule but given how early we were able to test I figured I was a bit earlier).

Yolk sac measuring normal.

Everything looks good! Super happy!

My fertility Dr is following me right up until my OB will take over. This is such a huge relief as with my first m/c I had so many dr's involved and I had to fight to get an OB to take care of things. I love how when I go for an ultrasound - I walk upstairs and see the dr and get all the information. So if anything is wrong, she will deal with it right then and there. I wanted a midwife - but given my experience with them the last time, I'm okay with having an ob. I'm thinking, if finances allow, of going with a doula to help with the birthing process. But we'll figure that out later.

Next step is 11 week physical. Then I'll have a 12 week ultrasound there.

Lovin things right now. Although my first pregnancy ended at 9.5 weeks - I know I'm not totally out of the woods yet...but I have a good feeling about things. Praying all continues to go well. They didn't have the ultrasound sound on...so I'm a bit bummed I couldn't hear the heart beat - but it is still possibly be too early so I'm okay with it at the end.

Praying all continues to go well.  Thanks for everyone's well wishes! Continue to keep us in your thoughts!
