Yesterday was our first prenatal appointment. I’ve been out of my mind with worry and doubt and concern – is everything okay, have I been doing everything right – and this was the chance to put our fears to rest.
More importantly, we got to meet our son or daughter for the first time!
Our little one has a good, steady heartbeat (more of a flutter at this point, but we saw it!), and is measuring 18 mm. That officially puts us at 8w4d yesterday – 9 weeks Friday, for an estimated due date of June 14. The doctor said, though, that she’s going to keep our original due date estimate until we have our first check and they give us an even more accurate reading. The good news is, I could possibly deliver on my darling friend Josh’s birthday which would be a great gift for both of them!
Right now, we’re just breathing easy. It’s all real, it’s all good, and we couldn’t be happier.
