8 weeks and a few days
After the longest wait ever we finally went to the doctor today and confirmed that all is well!
We were both eager and anxious this morning. I really didn't sleep well at all last night mostly due to my own worry about finally getting "official" word. After a regular check-up we headed in to the Ultrasound and saw that little peanut for the first time. Baby was measuring right where it should be and the heartbeat was nice and strong at 184 bpm. It is truly an amazing thing to hear that heartbeat for the first time. I think it's still sinking in.
We set our due date which is April 23, 2015! We got a generic doctor speech and a packet FULL of information about all that is ahead. Woah. They also took some blood and set up our next appointment.
We are planning to FINALLY share our news with our immediate family tonight. I can't believe we've kept the secret this long. We will thankfully be able to share with Matt's parents in person but we will have to settle for Google Chat for my family this time around.
But all in all, we are SO very excited for the journey ahead!
