6w4d: U/S and Heartbeat!!!

During today's ultrasound everything looked much clearer and Mr. Jem and I could see and hear the heartbeat (measured 117 beats per minute)!

I cried (tears of joy) the whole appointment. 

Here's a blurry scan of what we saw:
The nicest thing was the congratulations and hugs from the nurses, the u/s techs, and our favorite our acupuncturist after the appointment. 

So exciting!

Next appointment is in 2 weeks for our 8 week scan. Then we graduate to the OB. I've already made the appointment (I hope I didn't jinx things!!!).

Isn't the heartbeat The Best? That blurry little flicker! Everything feels like a jinx, doesn't it? I'm sorry to say it will probably continue that way at least until your baby is kicking you in the ribs from inside. Or until he/she goes to college. But, CONGRATULATIONS!

Congratulations! I just wanted to let you know I have read your whole blog in the last couple of days. (yea...had some free time.) I found your openness and honesty very refreshing. Please know that I am thinking of you and sending you positive vibes up in the north bay-in a totally non-creepy way! Your story touched me and I am cautiously optimistic for you and Mr. Jem. Enjoy every moment. :)
