Its official...

Today, I heard the words I've been dreaming of for soooo long... Uterine Pregnancy... Not that "you are pregnant" wasn't fantastic, but to know that my baby is burrowed inside and taking her supply of what she needs... I have no words.

We have a heartbeat! Yes, only one, much to the chagrin of the grandmoms to be... I was even a tad disappointed, but it was quickly erased to see this little beating thing... Probably the coolest thing I have ever seen! J came with and held my hand and grinned.

I asked about my prospective due date, and she said I'm about 6 weeks, 4 days; almost an entire week ahead of what I first thought! My due date would be May 3rd, the day before my mom's b-day. Another Taurus to butt heads with (sorry, Dianne, I was hoping for a Gemini, too!).

Thank you for all your kind words about my last freak out blog... I bought "The Girlfriend's Guide to Pregnancy" and "Belly Laughs". Both are way funnier and don't have thinks like: "You will miscarry this baby and have no chance of ever having another baby again if you even THINK about caffeine."

I'm off to contemplate my naval and stare at the back of my eyelids for a few hours! :)

One healthy heartbeat is the best news you could really hope to receive. I'm glad to hear you bought the GF guide- once you are done with that there is a GF guide to the first year. Just as good as the guide to expecting! One day at a time sister. You will get through it. One good way that I got through my anxiety was not to think of how many weeks I had to go to get to the finish line, but to think of how many weeks I had to go to make it to my next appointment. So if your doctor appointments are four weeks apart start by thinking in little increments of four weeks. Amazingly enough you will find yourself at six or seven months and then you will be hyperventilating at how little time is really left! Hugs!

I am very excited about your pregnancy! Please post the details as they occur and what you are feeling (both good and bad). Some of us who haven't made it this far yet are very curious.

BTW: Tag, your it! See my blog for details!

I dream of that news! I'm happy for you. Someday I hope I will experience it. But for now, your success gives me hope.
