Yesterday, Tues we saw the heartbeat for the first time and got to see our little sweet pea. It was so amazing that something SO tiny can have a heartbeat. It was a great surprise to see the heartbeat too. Our little one is 3.6mm crown to rump and heart rate is 120 beats per minute. We saw the yolk sac as well. I just can't get over how something SO tiny can have a heartbeat. So cool!
I'll have an ultrasound every single week for the first trimester. The OB said he wanted every week or every other week and I said I would prefer every week and he said that was fine. It will be good peace of mind for me. And very neat to watch our little sweet pea grow every week and etch our sweet pea turn into a baby! :)
after seeing our baby's heartbeat I am so beyond in love with our child. I think it also has been a wonderful bonding experience for my husband and I. It's like we have an even stronger connection that before. And after being best friends and together for nearly ten years now, I never thought the connection could possibly get stronger. I thank G-d every single day for this amazing miracle that we have been given.
