7 week ultrasound

Will and I went for the ultrasound this afternoon - we were soooo nervous!

So far, so good. It looks like there's a baby in there!

Embryo is measuring 7 weeks, 4 days. Heartbeat is 167 bpm.


We are beyond thrilled!!!! Still cautious as we've gotten to this point before, only to be terribly disappointed. But we are also filled with incredible hope.

The RE said, "See? You guys didn't really need me at all. Look what you've done all by yourselves!" Which was lovely.

We go for our first high risk OB appt on Wednesday. We told our RE we're afraid to leave him just yet because the last time we "graduated," we found out at the OB that the baby had died. And the unanesthetized D&C by a doctor we'd only just met was pretty traumatic.

The RE said we can stay on with him until we feel comfortable with the new doctor and that he's happy to do more ultrasounds to help us feel reassured. He just kept repeating, "Whatever you want. You can have whatever you want," with this big smile on his face. Thankfully, I think he understands our anxiety.

So we are elated!!! Still afraid to get too excited. But also completely beside ourselves with happiness!! OK, I'll admit it. Despite our better judgment, we are REALLY EXCITED!!!
