Could it be?

Our Saturday started off quite early. On our way to our appointment, we had to stop to get gas. And, I wasn't feeling that well at all. We got to the office a little early, but they were able to take us back soon after we got there. After completing the basics (temperature, blood pressure, pulse, etc...), we were placed in the room for the ultrasound. I was happy that we didn't have to wait long. I don't think that I could have handled it.

When the ultrasound first started, I saw the gestational sac right away. I was happy that it was in utero. Then, I quickly got nervous. Was it a blighted ovum? After a few seconds, I saw a yolk sac. Our RE confirmed what I was seeing. And, then, there it was. A heartbeat! It was so amazing to see.

I have no idea when I ovulated. We have no idea what I should be measuring. I thought I would be around 6w2d, but the measurement gave us around 5w5d. Should I worry? Our RE didn't seem to be. She said, "everything is going well so far." She isn't releasing us just yet.

I asked her to check my TSH level. So, I should hear back about that soon. I hope that it's in check and if not we can take care of it soon. No other bloodwork was checked.

Our next ultrasound is 1.26.11 at 4:15pm. I hope and I pray that everything continues to progess as it should.

Wow, so exciting! No, don't be worried at all...just a millimeter on those machines can mean a week's difference in gestational age when they are that small. Mine varied by up to 5 days that early on. It depends on where they put that cursor. I am so excited for you!
