Cupid's Gift


Purchase here


Today could have been the best or worst Valentine's: this morning we had our ultrasound. Originally it was supposed to be on Saturday, but we realized that there was a miscommunication and that they don't do non-required-cycle ultrasounds on Saturday. That's a story in itself that at this point bores even me, so I will spare you the details.

I think I may have held my breath as the ultrasound began. My husband has never seen an ultrasound, which seems incredulous now that I think about it, so it was a completely new experience for him. (I've lost count on how many I've had in the last year alone!) After what seemed like forever (really just a few seconds), the big black circle came into focus. With a little white circle (yolk sack) inside. And a blinky heartbeat that measured at 129 beats per second. The doctor said it was perfect.

And then she showed us #2... Equally perfect.

    3. I had a feeling after the 3rd hCG because of the big jump, but I didn't want to drive myself crazy thinking about it. My hubby thought it was from the beginning.

      Hoping it lasts and that everyone (including surrogate) is ok.

  7. We also had a valentine day heartbeat scan, and no future valentine gift will ever surpass this. Welcome to the multiple heartbeat club - it's hard, but a lot of fun.

    1. Yea, I was torn between hoping and not. There are higher risks, so it's a bit scary.
