So I went in for my first MW appt today. With our last baby that resulted in miscarriage, we never heard a HB on the first appt at 10w and then went on to see in the u/s two days later that the baby died at 9w, 5dys. Today I'm 10w, 1d and we heard a very strong heartbeat!!!! 165!!! So with this, and with our u/s seeing the baby at 7w, 5dys, I'm very confident that we are keeping this baby! Our MW says the chance of a loss at this point is about 1%. It was the best news, I cried my eyes out. And we are leaving for a 6 week RV trip tomorrow and the last thing I wanted to worry about was the whole "what if I lose the baby on vacation" thing.

We still aren't telling very many people, so I just wanted to shout from the rooftops of this forum what our good news is

I posted this before I read that mom2threenurslings lost her baby, and now I feel like a horse's patootie

Horse's patootie or no (and my vote is no), your news is wonderful and deserves to be celebrated!
Congratulations.
