Smile saw baby's heartbeat

had my first u/s yesterday and got to see the baby's heartbeat!! The little heart was beating strongly at 170 bpm. I am completely in awe of the miracle of having a tiny, precious life growing inside me. Just can't get over it.
Plus, it was reassuring to hear after being told a couple weeks ago that I had a threatened miscarriage b/c of bleeding. The u/s showed some bleeding behind the placenta, but the dr. said the fact that we heard a heartbeat was a good sign. I guess once they detect a heartbeat the chance of miscarrying decreases significantly, but she also said the chance was still there. She said I had "sub-placental bleeding" or something like that. Does anyone here know anything about this?
Sorry for rambling, I'm just so excited. My scared feeling after the bleeding and cramping has been replaced by a cautiously very happy feeling. I keep praying things will keep going well! Oh, and I found out the EDD-- 12/8/03!

Yeah!!! That is great news, I know you were worried. I did alot of reading up on the placenta because I had placenta previa (which has now fixed itself) for the 1st six months. Sometimes the placenta can pull away from the was of the uterus, but it can and often does reattatch. The placenta is an organ just like any other in our body, it's just specially manufactured for pregnancy. That being said, it is very resourceful and has the ability to repair itself. Best of luck and keep us posted. And isn't that little flicker of a heartbeat amazing?
