7 Week Ultrasound

Monday was a whirlwind of a day for us. I didn't get home from Ohio until late on Sunday night, I hardly slept at all that night (most likely due to nerves). In the morning Hubby and I had our u.s appointment, then we had to rush back to the airport to drop off my Mom who was still in town.

Truth be told, between all the rushing around on Monday, and work Tues - Thurs, and constant exhaustion, I haven't had the energy to update my blog. I'm so sorry! Forgive me this transgression!

I'm sure you aren't here to read about my trip to Ohio (I'll update another time on that) or to hear about my lost luggage or anything. I know you're really just here to find out about my ultrasound. And that's why I love you all!

Here goes. I told the technician that I was terrified as I'd had a miscarriage 2 years ago. She first did an abdominal scan and said that my ovaries were still really swollen from the OHSS and that they may get in the way of our dear friend Wandy. She also said that it could take months for the swelling to go down (which explains why my belly is already so big!).

Wandy makes his appearance. I couldn't really see much on the monitor and my heart rate jumped with anxiety. I knew that this was the end. But wait! She confirmed there is a sac in there. And, it has a heartbeat!! (imagine me letting go of 7 weeks of nerves in a single breath). The baby is measuring exactly 7 weeks so we're right on track.

To recap: 1 baby, 1 heart beat, 2 relieved parents to be!
