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.

Ultrasound #3 - Heartbeat!

We saw the heartbeat today, a tiny flutter like butterfly wings (and that was R's poetic description!)

The arrow is pointing at to where we saw the heartbeat. We did have a little scare though, when the gestational sac first appeared on the screen, it appeared to be empty! I think my heart stopped beating right about then. But the RE waved her wand around a bit and voila! the sneaky little bugger was just hiding from us and all is well. She said it measured at 6weeks, which is fine since I'm at 6w1d. She said they just want it to measure within a week of what they expect.

Since we've seen the heartbeat, the next ultrasound won't be until next week on Friday. Unless they can't squeeze us in, in which case we'll have to wait 2 weeks (boo!)
