Heartbeat = 159bpm!!

I am in love.

We saw our baby again today... and I am so thankful to report that appointment #2 and we're still going strong!

The little one - and I do mean little (more to come on that) - had definitely grown since last week. We could see the outline with the head and body and a pulsating heartbeat that the doctor was able to measure at 159! Very strong!

The actual CRL, or crown to rump length, is still measuring very small. We are about a week off. One measurement showed 6w0d and another 6w1d. The calendar say 7w2d. Dr. Plosker couldn't explain it, unless, he said, it took a while to implant. The thing is, we know our timelines pretty closely since they were all medically induced. We know when I ovulated, we know when egg met sperm. Could the little fertilized egg have just swum around an extra few days before cozying in to the lining of the womb?

Hubby tells me to stop over thinking (!) and just be happy with a good appointment! He's right, of course. Not that that doesn't mean I won't be googling all over the place for info on measurement as soon as I'm done here! (Sorry, babe.)

But, as we left, Dr. P said that he felt "90% good about it"... so I think I'll take than and say Thank You God!

PS - I totally pulled a Beth Moore on the floor of the doctor's office bathroom before we went in. No shame here!

6 more days til we see Baby again!
