First Dr's appt

I was terrified. We lost one last year at 8 weeks so I managed to get myself worked up pretty good while I was sitting in the waiting room. Then I thought my heart was going to leap out of my chest as I was laying there on the table as he was doing oh so fun internal sono.
The baby measured in at 5w5d which is a few days later than we thought it would be but there was an oh so faint flicker of a heartbeat which was a relief to see. I go back next Friday for a second sono.
They did the usual blood tests and then just because I'm so concerned she is doing another beta to see if the numbers are climbing like they should.
I've had cramps this morning but it's probably nothing. I hope.
