Heartbeat!

A perfect, flickering little pulse of light that we could both see easily and immediately in our little chicken.

Measuring 6w even, tech said not to be concerned, because the heart rate was a perfect 111 bpm and there was a gorgeous large yolk sac and a beautiful large lovely cyst on my right ovary and it was all perfect.

We are having a hard time not grinning. We have a living baby in there. It's the farthest we've come - we've never seen a h/b before.

I'll probably write much more later, and maybe now I can start putting the letters to the little chickie I've been composing down on paper (as it were), but for now, I'm going to go throw up and take a nap.

Thank you for all the prayers, well wishes, crossed fingers and hopes. We aren't out of the woods yet, but so far, everything is perfect.

I'm so excited that I may have peed a little, which is rather embarassing since I'm no longer pregnant.

Way to go, chicken!
