I'm so incredibly happy! On Saturday me and the Mr saw our little bean for the first time, and it was AMAZING!
I didn't know what to expect given that I've never been pregnant before, but it was a lovely experience that was over just a little bit too quickly!
We were led into a large room, complete with sofas sporting pink and blue cushions (original) and I lay down on the chair-bed while gel was squidged on my swollen tummy.
Swollen due to suffering from constipation, gas and a VERY full bladder.
At this point I was terrified they wouldn't find anything, then all of a sudden, out of the abyss, I saw a circular black, circle like thing appear on the screen, and within it, the most beautiful, tiny bean, complete with tiny arm and leg buds and a strong, fast heartbeat!
I chocked, I'll admit it, but it was AMAZING!
There was something there, there was a teenie tiny baby in my belly and I felt a huge rush of emotions and love for this tiny person growing inside me.
So you're the little person causing me to feel so grim!
I had to hold my breath while the sonographer held the wand over my beans heart to check his/her heart rate as with each breath I took she lost the spot over the baby (He/she is super tiny right now after all!)
My bean's heart was pumping away at 175 beats per minute! Incredible.
Going by the first day of my last period I had been dated at 8+1 weeks the date of the scan, but the sonographer revealed that I was a few days ahead at 8+4 or 5 weeks, though that would probably change at the more accurate 12 weeks scan.
It was an amazing experience; So reassuring and incredible and I can't wait to see my little bean again in a few weeks!
