The First Time I Heard Your Heartbeat

I burst out in tears and trembled. 

Let's keep it real. 

Backing it up a bit...

We went in for our first viability ultrasound after wonderful betas this past Friday, April 22nd. 

We saw a gestational sack and yolk, but no heartbeat. 

Then over that weekend I had horrible cramping. Cramping that would wake me up at night. I also lost all of the pregnancy symptoms I had felt. I am not going to lie I had convinced myself it was over.  My pain of pregnancies past overshadowed any hope that I could muster.  I
 messaged my nurse Monday morning and she told me to come in at 10 am for an ultrasound. 

We saw your heartbeat on April 25th.  

There wasn't a dry eye in the room. It was at this point I truly grasped how many people were fighting for you.
