For everyone who crossed fingers (and toes...)

You are the absolute best! Thank you so very much- I felt the positive thoughts that came my way today. At the appointment, my blood pressure was normal (I'm medicated, but I guess the environment usually makes it skyrocket). I got a quick annual exam, lucky girl that I am, and then did the sonogram. There Baby was, a little squirmy gummy bear. We saw movement and heard a heartbeat! Baby grew two weeks and a few days, which is a little more than we were hoping. The little grape-sized fighter is a feisty one, thank goodness. We got our pictures, I got a flu shot, and then made an appointment for a month. A full month. I'm not sure that I know how to stay away from the doctor's office for that long.

Another office visit, another happy departure. I can seriously get used to this.

Good call, Heather. I think "Gummy Bear" is a good offcial name for now!

Yeah!!!

And you know what, if you can't wait, you call the doctor and say I'm really anxious after my loss and infertility and squeeze me in for a quick sonogram. DO IT! And then roar at him. No one wants to mess with the crazy pregnant lady.

I'm so happy that the gummy bear is growing.
