Congratulations, a heartbeat at this stage is very encouraging :) It's always nerve wracking to go through a pregnancy after a loss (had a MMC myself) but it's a new pregnancy and shouldn't be compared. I was shocked at how common they are but nearly all women go on to have a healthy baby. Here in the UK your first scan is at 12 weeks unless you bleed or have other complications. That's a long wait! I had one this time at 6 + 3 weeks and saw the heartbeat. Also found it on my Doppler yesterday which was surprising as I'm just 9 weeks. It's so reassuring to hear that heartbeat eh! Was yours a routine scan?

Yes, it was a routine scan. I'm in the UK as well so it was a long and hard wait to make it to the 12 weeks mark. Scary as well as my missed miscarriage wasn't detected until my 12 week scan the last time around. But, DH and I are moving on and feeling like we can finally celebrate and enjoy this pregnancy.
