On Friday, we went to our 8 week check-up at Shady Grove, our final appointment with Dr. Sasson. After a quick ultrasound to see the baby, Dr. Sasson asked us to meet him in the hallway where he presented us with a handwritten note and an ultrasound photo. What made the moment even more sweet was the fact that Gabe was with us. We had never brought Gabe back to meet Dr. Sasson or the nurses at Shady Grove so it was a precious, emotional moment as we introduced him to the nurses who helped us through our first IVF three years ago.

As we headed out the office doors to the car, I blinked back tears, just thinking about the amazing gifts we have in Gabe and this next baby. Of course I'm thankful for Dr. Sasson and Shady Grove, but most of all, I'm thankful that God directed our steps to such a wonderful place.

At this point, we are in the 5% miscarriage rate category. We hope to hold out for a few more weeks before telling the masses about our news.

Early heartbeat!

We got to listen to the baby's heart beating... 117 beats per minute. Dr. Sasson said the baby's heart just started to beat a few days ago. So surreal and amazing!
