I had my first ultrasound this morning (multiple miscarriages) at 6w 1d, and our itty bitty baby's heart was beating away at 120 bpm! Everything (gestational sac, yolk sac, baby) is measuring perfectly, even a couple of days "ahead". I am so relieved.

I'll post some pictures later

Yay for a heartbeat! I'm still trying to decide whether I should have an early ultrasound myself. It's heart-lifting and affirming to see how happy you are in this post.

Awww, your post gave me chills. I can't wait to hear/see my little one's heartbeat. I still can't believe there's someone growing in there!
