Yes, I was in and out of the OB visit today in 10 minutes. Fetal heartbeat strong at 156 bpm.
This pregnancy is different this time around. Well, I'm different, I guess. Hearing the heartbeat was a relief instead of an expectation. I know now I was very lucky to have had a pregnancy in the past where I did not worry about miscarriage or other problems. When we saw the two pink lines for the first time, we called all our family and let them know. This time? We planned on telling friends/ family via birth announcement in the fall;-)
I hope that as the pregnancy progresses, I can get genuinely excited about it and that the fears will eventually subside. I am beginning to learn that no matter the outcome of an infertile woman's journey, infertility will always be a part of her story.
