That's awesome Teresa! So glad you waited it out and saw the nice OB. What a difference a compassionate physician can make. It is amazing that you saw the heartbeat today. I am so happy for you. May the happiness continue for another 8-9mos!
p.s. You can add me to the pincushion club. They can never find my veins. After my ER, I had to hide my right arm for a couple of weeks because it seriously looked like I'd been beaten. Not fun. Drink lots of water before labs if you can- it sometimes helps.
