We have a heartbeat! :)

Well, the big day, after the wait that seemed to take forever finally came.
When we got to the RE office, I started looking around with sentiment again. Who knows if this is the last time I would be here.
We were called in pretty quickly and the sonographer saw it right away. He said the pregnancy is right where it should be aand looking perfect. We saw the little one for the first time – I don’t know how it is that one can feel so in love with a grainy little blob, but I instantly said how I just love seeing that little embie.
“Yeah, they are very cute at this age, aren’t they?” The sonographer joked with a smile.
The heart was beating in what seemed like a beautiful slow motion. There was also a round area on top which the sonographer said was the yolk sac that is nourishing the baby. I asked when I would totally take over and he said it is gradual – my end of 1st tri, it is fully the placenta.
He said the measurement is right were it should be at 7.9 which corresponds to 6 weeks 5 days, which is where I am today.
The heartbeat measured at 141 – well within the raange of 120-150.
It all looked good.

We were all done and were ushered in to see our RE before we left. It was that short conclusion talk with him like last time and he had a letter for my ob/gyn whoever I choose, which he suggested I pick soon as they would want to see me in the next couple weeks.
I’m being handed over again. Why is it so sentimentally sad to end with the RE?
I wondered if we would be in this office again. We do have more embies, and something tells me I’ll come back one day. Even though having more than 2 kids was not really in my plans.
But one at a time. For now, I’m just thrilled for this baby.
I asked the RE what my chances of miscaarriage are right now and he said at this point of the hb, the chance is about 5%. So in other words I have a 95% chance of bringing this baby home. I’ll take that.
Due date? Valentine’s day 🙂
Truly made with love.
