The Tiniest Flicker

on April 3, 2014

Today, shit got real.

I had an 8 a.m. ultrasound appointment.  We’ve never made it this far.  I thought about it every day for the past week.  Would we see the lil one?  Would we be one of the lucky ones to hear an early heartbeat?  Would it be a blank screen?  Thankfully, the hub’s boss let him skip out on his first surgery of the day to join me.  Our super awkward doctor came in and got right down to business.  The screen came up and there it was.

Our baby.

There is only one there, but my god are we so blessed.  It’s tiny.  .27 centimeters…1/10 of an inch.  He squinted and pointed.  “If you look just at this tiny spot you’ll see the tiniest flicker.  That’s your baby’s heart beating.”

Holy shit, Batman.  We’ve done it.  It’s there.  Our baby.

I’ve been on a baby high today.  Clipping diaper coupons, buying tiny hangers on sale at Target (damn you, Target – I went only to refill my Folbic not spend $20!), picking nursery colors.

Everything is far more real today.

    Congratulations! Our doctor told us to look for the “diamond ring” and the flicker was in the diamond. Congratulations on your precious little gem! This is so exciting! (Also, seeing a heartbeat is a REALLY good sigh that things are going as they should) if you start feeling nauseous, I recommend acupressure bracelets, and Tummy Drops. Both were recommended to me by an experienced friend and they both work great!

  3. Congratulations!!! That’s so exciting! 🙂 🙂

  4. Seriously amazing news!!! Congrats!!!! I can’t wait for the day when I get to see a tiny heartbeat.

      Thank you! I’ll tell you what. It’s overwhelming to think about it, but once you start a cycle it moves quickly (in retrospect). If you ever need an ear for listening or a shoulder for crying the girls here are pretty awesome 🙂 Good luck!
