I am due in August as well! Aug 22nd. 7 weeks 6 days today. I have one son. He is 2 years old and he is my world.

In 2015, we had three miscarriages. One at 5.5 weeks, one at 4 weeks 4 days, and one at 8 weeks. In November is 2015 I was found to have a small / moderate size uterine septum and scheduled to have it removed in Feb. Apparently I have had it all my life. We decided to TTC one more time before the surgery, assuming I will miscarry before surgery date if i miscarried at all, so why not. Well pregnancy was achieved!

So for now, i stay cautiously optimistic and keeping this pregnancy mostly to myself. We have our first scan on Tuesday (in two days!). I am incredibly nervous and scared as scans in the past have resulted in heart wrenching pain. I can only pray this time will be better!!

Yes! Baby measured exactly 8 wks so right on time. Heartbeat was 158. Perfect. Also, doc was able to tell me that the baby did not appear to implant on the septum!

I am still incredibly nervous, but my mind is a little calmer. I ordered a fetal doppler to use periodically at home, maybe once or twice a week if I am having a bad day. I will use it until I can feel baby kick. It will come in about a week or so.
