    This is tremendously out of the realm of education...

    But...

    *deep breath* :love:

    Today was our very second visit to an OBGYN. At 10 weeks pregnant with a history of multiple miscarriages, I have not yet quite admitted to myself that I am having a baby soon. February 21, 2011to be exact.

    10 weeks. TEN WEEKS. We never, ever made it that far. We saw and heard the amazingly beautiful heartbeat! It was 167 mph or whatever they use to measure baby's heartbeat.

    I honestly think I have never seen the look of joy on my beloved husband's face like I saw when he watched the baby on the sonogram screen.

    OB said my chance of loss has "plummetted" after this ultrasound.

    Again, I know this is off topic. But I had to share, I am just bursting with joy.

    For everyone's viewing pleasure:

    I know it's not a picture of my classroom. That will come next week. ;)

    Thank you for reading. :love:

    Congratulations and the Best of Luck! Isn't that first ultrasound amazing? Our son is just 5 weeks old and of all the appointments, I remember that ultrasound most vividly. It moved me to tears and I am not a crier! Seeing the heartbeat for the first time is aweinspiring! It is truly a miraculous thing!

    New life. Cherished life. Desired life. To me, that is totally in the realm of education. (It's a future class member:cool:). I congratulate you and wish for you a healthy, happy pregnancy with a beautiful, healthy baby and mom at the end! Blessings!!!

    What a wonderful blessing star :) Continued prayers for an uneventful and wonderful pregancy. You will remember this appt for the rest of your life!! My babies are 20 and 16 and I still remember the first time I heard their little hearts beat. Thanks for the picture also. I continue to be amazed at the wonders of technology that can produce such a clear image of your baby. So much has changed in 16 years :)

    Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for your kind words, encouragement and well-wishes!

    My husband and I are simply overjoyed. It's funny... I can be quite the "worry wart" and little things that I'd fret over truly seem insignificant right now!!

    Since I am starting at a new school this year (decision made before baby was known about) I am a little bit worried about how the parents and coworkers will feel. At 7 weeks pregnant, I blurted it out to my principal when she was showing me my class room.

    I couldn't have asked for a better reaction -- she hugged me and said she'd pray for me! To top it off, three days later I received a card in the mail from her! It said "Congrats Parents-to-be" and signed with "With Love, Mrs. __ and your new school family!"

    What peace of mind! :love:

    I remember your post about a new job and wondering if you should say something about your pregnancy. It sounds like you are entering into a wonderful new school family. What a support group you will have, your family, school and US! :)
