We saw our sunflower seed last night

We had a small scare. I started to cramp really bad and the cramps were radiating through to my back and there was a little spotting. I freaked but tried to pretend like I was calm. We took a trip to the ER and everything was fine. The baby measured at 7w1d so 1 day ahead of schedule and it's heartbeat was 146. The tech even saw evyething from on top first then went inside with Mr. Wandy to check out my ovaries. Obviously the cramping and spotting is from the corpus luteum (sp?) cyst that every pregnant woman has. The tech said mine was just a little large, but that is fine. No cramping or spotting really since then and the spotting was so super light that I almost wasn't sure it was there. That is how it started with my miscarriage though so I was super scared. Seeing our baby and hearing that wonderful heartbeat was the best thing in the world. Nothing could have been better. I call Turkey-Lurkey a sunflower seed because that is it's size right now. So tiny!
