7w4d

Ultrasound this morning at 8:00 a.m. with my RE and music to my ears...CB's little heartrate was nice and strong at 155 bpm.  RE made it clear we are not out of the woods yet, which I know, but I hope and pray little CB stays with us for the next 32 weeks and then makes a grand arrival!

I know all the statistics...there is less than 5% chance of miscarriage after hearing the heartbeat...but, I know how my odds tend to go.  I also know though that my 1st 2 m/c's were before we even got far enough to see anything.

I'm still spotting, but I think I am just not "normal" and this is my "normal"...with Bailey, I bled full out at 9 weeks.  With this one, if spotting is it...then hallelujah...I can handle that.

Nausea kicked in this week...nothing horrible, just enough to let me know it's there.  I've been exhausted for about 2 weeks and making constant trips to the bathroom.  But, I'll take all of it.  We are doing daily injections of progesterone, which Adam gives to me in my butt every night...he's NOT loving that part.

But, so far...so good.  I went ahead and announced on Facebook because we can use all the prayers from friends and family that we can get. 

Here's a picture of CB (btw:  CB is because "C" will be the first letter in this baby's first name, and if it's a girl, her middle name will be Bailey, so we have decided to call this one CB until that time) at 7w4d (measuring at 7w1d which is right on track from last week).

Great! I didn't see any baby at my ultrasound at 7.5 weeks so I'm greatly relieved to see that you did. Keep growing CB!
