When I talked to Dr. Sher’s nurse after our ultrasound last week I told her how worried I was about not seeing the baby for 3 weeks. She asked if I wanted another ultrasound. Who doesn’t want to look at their baby another time? So, of course, I said “Really? Yes, please!”
So here we are, 8 weeks pregnant and with more beautiful, fuzzy, black and white pictures of our little bubble. It is measuring at exactly 1 week ahead of last week, 8 weeks 3 days. The heart was clip clopping away at 167, which, from what I’ve read, is a perfect increase from last week also.

I promised myself yesterday (after closing my 500th go.og.le search of miscarriage after seeing a heartbeat) that if everything looked good on today’s ultrasound that I would embrace this pregnancy. Now here I am, with a perfect little one growing away and committed to my promise.
Here it goes:
- I will not go.og.le miscarriage anymore
- I will not stalk blogs about missed miscarriage
- I will tell people I’m pregnant (except for work, I’m waiting until 10 or 12 weeks)
- I will remember that there are no guarantees in life and that I am the luckiest girl alive to be pregnant at all!
