We had an ultrasoubd on 12/22 (5w5d) and they saw a little fetal pole but it was too early to see a heartbeat. I went back on 1/5/2012 (7w5d)for another u/s and we saw our baby with a heartbeat! The heartbeat was 156!
I am 8 weeks along today. Now I have to decide whether we will find out the gender at 20 weeks or wait until delivery.
