There really is a baby!!!!

So, we went to the doctor today. We saw a nice big gestational sac, It has grown a lot since last Friday! Then, when we looked really close we saw a very faint heartbeat. The doctor said it was fine for 5 weeks 6 days or 6 weeks. He has us going back on Monday to see it again. He wants to see it stronger. A few days can make a world of difference.

In addition, he found another sac, that was much smaller. He said it was probably a twin that didn't make it. That was a sad. However, we are greatful for the one we have.

So, we have a nice little baby. I will feel better after seeing the heart beat stronger on Monday. However, we have a heartbeat... So, I am thankful! Plus, they say after seeing the heartbeat there is only a 5% chance of miscarriage. That makes me feel better.

Right now we believe it is April 20th. I'm sure that will change a couple of times. How is your pregnancy going?
