We had an ultrasound this morning when we went to see a specialist. I saw the little feller’s heart beating. So tiny, so fragile, so fast and so undeniably present.
This is a big event – it means that the fetus is viable, and that things are going as well as they can. We haven’t been this far yet.
The specialist said that before we saw the heart beat we had a 60 – 70% chance of seeing through to a successful delivery. Seeing the heartbeat, however, has improved our odds to about 95%.
Those are good odds, and I am freakin’ giddy.
