Her heartbeat

The first time we "think" we heard Alana's heartbeat was during my ER visit at 5 weeks when I was bleeding and thought that something might be wrong. The ultrasound tech was apparently not able to show us the ultrasound or tell us what heartbeat we were hearing so we took a guess that what we heard was her little heart already beating.

During our visit to the OB today, Dr. Gabbay didn't do an ultrasound like she usually does but instead used the doppler to let us hear her heartbeat and Francis and I just looked at each other and smiled. Sadly Francis was recording it on his phone but it didn't save it, so hopefully during our next visit we can ask her to listen one more time.

It's times like this when I am just completely in awe about how this all happened. From having PCOS to being on the pill and being told I would have a difficult time getting pregnant, I think about how she's our little miracle baby. I can't wait till the day when I say to myself what my mom said when I was born, "She's beautiful and she's mine".
