Baby Landis has a heartbeat!

7 weeks 1 day
Today I had an ultrasound and we got to see the flicker of the little bean's heart beating. The nurse also turned on the doppler and we heard it. A solid 135 beats per minute. I know ultrasounds can be hard to read so I'll try to translate. The cross on the right side is the head, the one of the left is the tail. The little semi-circle below is the amniotic sac. It was pretty encouraging to see something a lot bigger than last time. Afterwards I got a whole spill on what I can and can't do. Plus lots of free books and pamphlets. Then I got 8 vials of blood taken, which was not too fun. Anyways we are super excited to see that the little one is growing and it all is starting to feel very real now!
