Phil and went to the doctor today for my first official prenatal appointment. Everything went fine but the doctor still does not want to get us excited just yet. We did hear the heartbeat and the heart is beating just like it is supposed to beat. In fact I think the doctor's face had a bigger smile than my face. We still have 2 weeks to go until the 2nd trimester.
I went for another ultrasound and we still have a strong baby with a strong heartbeat. We actually heard the heartbeat loud and clear today. We are getting more and more optimistic everyday. We have 5 more weeks to go until the first trimester is over. Prayers have helped us through and we still need them.
7 weeks If you look closely you can see the placenta attached to the baby. It is the bottom circle. You can see it better when you enlarge the picure by clicking on it.
