we have a heartbeat!!!

Yesterday we had the baby u/s with the RE and we saw our tadpole, so tiny but yet so adorable. The RE was able to find it right away and the first thing she said was... we have a heartbeat and its a strong one, would you like to hear it? HELL YEA!!!! is what was going through my head, but I smiled and nodded. It was like my prayers being answered at that moment, the heat is beating 116BPM. As per the old wives tale, found here, It was said that 140+ beats per minute (BPM) was a girl and under 140 BPM was a boy. So lets see.

Here is a picture of the u/s... The head is up and he/she is facing to the left.

Our next u/s is Monday, 7/12 and hopefully we will have a little gummy bear looking baby :)

Thank you all for all of your T&P and well wishes!

My LO's h/b was 116 bpm @ the first u/s too!! It'll go up as you get further along & then back down again as you get closer to delivery. SOOO happy for you guys, congrats!!

That's so exciting. I have heard that the old wives tale doesn't work until later in the pregnancy though... Trust me, I've been anxious to know what I'm having as well. My hubby doesn't want to find out. But I remember that first moment we got to hear our baby's heartbeat... it was amazing. (I'm just over 14 weeks along right now.)
