Blobby has a Heartbeat!!!

Today we had our 2nd ultrasound. Everything is going great! Blobby looks just right. The heart rate is perfect. 146 bpm. I can honestly say that I wasn't very worried. And that is only true because I am feeling crummy most days so I know its still going good.

I got all teary hearing that little heart beat. Why does it seem so much more real now? I still forget that I'm preggo a lot, but when I remember that heartbeat, it feels real again. Even hubby got choked up! Which of course made me even more teary.

I'm still terrified, but I think I'm going to let the cat out of the bag to my family. My folks & siblings know, but not aunts & uncles or my grandma. I'm only gonna tell now so that my grandma gets to know. But as soon as she knows, so will EVERYONE in the southern half of Texas. I'm not sure she does it. She lives alone, but everyone around calls her. It may take a bit longer since she doesn't have a phone in her room at the nursing home yet, but all of the aunts & uncles come visit, so I give it a week. I told one of my aunts because her daugher also used ART (advanced reproductive technology) to conceive. Her baby is due next month.

Well now feel free to look away if you don't want to see our ultrasounds.
Our Blobby is the white shape inside of the black jelly bean.

If you make this pic bigger you might be able to see the heart rate at the bottom. There are little white lines that show the woosh woosh we heard.


  1. Yay!!!!! I'm so very happy for you!! Hearing that heartbeat is such an incredible experience. Enjoy every second! I think as long as you feel comfortable telling more people, you should go for it. My RE told us before 8 weeks to tell anyone that we would tell either way (if things went well, or not) and that helped me cement who I wanted to tell and who I didn't very easily. So excited for you!!!

  2. Even though I cried when I read this post, I am still VERY, VERY happy you were able to hear that precious sound. I can't wait to hear how excited your grandma gets! Congrats.
