Keith and I went in, and they said everything appeared to be fine with my cramping. They did go ahead and do a ultrasound just to be safe. The office thought I was 8 weeks, I was thinking more like 6 to 7. This would imply that you would see something on the ultrasound machine, instead there was nothing......black hole....
I was panicked! I couldn't stand that I couldn't see anything. They said I was probably too early to tell, but I couldn't imagine being any earlier than 6 weeks. So, they told me to come back 2 weeks later..
Those were the hardest 2 weeks! I had the 4th of July to distract me, but it was painful. We also didn't tell anyone during this time without knowing anything. I was pretty much assuming the worst this whole time. I tried to take it easy and distract myself.
...Finally the 2 weeks passed (July 6th) I had never been so excited for a Monday following a 3 day weekend! Keith and I went in nervously. They started to do the ultrasound and I was seeing nothing......then, we saw a baby!!! Not only that, but Keith immediately spotted the heartbeat! Wow, what a relief...how exciting! We saw the little white flicking light that was the heartbeat, and was told it looked to be very strong.
That was such a cool moment, and suddenly everything got really real!
