… is a flicker of light beating away at 122bpm!!! Yes people our little bubba, measuring in at 6 weeks, had a lovely strong heartbeat that they picked up right away.
We are over the moon!! I think it will still take a long time for us to get our head around things, but it suddenly all became so much more real. TAKE THAT all those negative “There’s no chance this will work” people!! HA HA HA!!!
We had great pleasure going straight from the scan to the clinic to tell our favourite nurse our good news. Following that we happened upon our counsellor and next favourite nurse in reception, it just felt so good to tell them.
We bought our first peice of baby clothing for THIS baby. We have picked up things over the years for future baby, but this is tangible, this is something for our baby, right now, that has a strong heart beat beating away in my womb.
We have decided to tell everyone tomorrow now. Different groups of people know, because they have had to due to how things have happened and it’s gotten messy. While there is still a risk, we just don’t care anymore and want to just tell people and have that happy reaction, rather than the guarded ones we have been getting. For me personally if things were to go wrong (which they won’t), it’s not an embarrassment or something I did wrong that caused it. And I would rather have people be understanding at that time than wonder what my fucking problem is. So yeah, tomorrow, everyone will know! We are ready to claim this baby as a reality instead of a possibility!
