8w0d

Nothing like coming back from vacation! Work yesterday and today - not as much fun as the beach.

The weather was great and we had a good time - I sure could use another week or so.

Anyway, since we were on vacation last week, I had to schedule my follow-up scan for today. I started spotting before my first scan and that has continued through today, so I was so worried. But everything went well, measuring 8w1d and heartbeat at 171. I am breathing a bit easier.

The RE did not seem too worried about the spotting and I'll double check with the OB on Friday. I feel so much more relaxed.

I haven't been reading or commenting too much lately due to bad internet connection on vacation. I'll be catching up this week!

That is great news! My OB swears by a h/b at 8 weeks. He has told me many studies indicate a h/b at 8 weeks is a great indicator of success.

It's nice to return to blogland and see good news. And congratulations on your becoming foster parents even though it is taking longer than you hoped. I had never considered being a foster parent, I wonder if it would be something we could do? It seems like such a wonderful thing to do for kids.
