Rainbow, 6 weeks + 3 days, we have a heartbeat!

Today was our first ultrasound at the Perinatal Center. The point of having an ultrasound this early was to confirm there was still a viable pregnancy and heartbeat, so that I could start lovenox injections soon after.

This is what we saw:

The embryo's heart rate (not looking much like a "baby" just yet) measured  in at 118 beats per minute, which they promised was good. However, the baby was measuring 4 days behind, so I immediately panicked and started expecting everything to go wrong, again, while Joe thought I was nuts.
