The Fertility Carousel

Reaching for the brass ring on the fertility carousel (again!). (Because I already caught the brass ring on the infertility carousel and I want to get rid of it!) Two years of trying to conceive, but I finally got baby E. Now we begin going around and around again. Infertility sucks.

First Ultrasound - 5w1d

I had my first pg ultrasound today.

R came with me. I'm so glad that he could be there, even though there wasn't a lot to see because it was our first view of our baby. And somehow, seeing it on the screen and seeing the movement just makes it more real. Now I realize that it's not the baby moving, but rather the doctor's magic wand, but still... the sense of motion adds something.

At this stage, it's just a little blob inside a larger, blurrier blob, but the important thing is that it's just one blob. If there had been 2, it would have been a nice thrill, but I'm happy with one. If there had been more than 2 blobs, we would have needed CPR to revive R. His sense of relief was palpable at the doctor's proclamation of a singleton.

Next RE appointment is Monday - not sure why it's so soon, she said everything looked great.
