Best. Ultrasound. Ever.

Well, that is, best so far.

I was shaking when I was waiting for the tech. I was shutting my eyes too when she put the wand in. And then she said the magic words…

“There’s your baby.”

I was in shock. I couldn’t believe it.

There was a perfect little blob with a perfect flickering heartbeat.

I’m still in shock.

Our little bub is measuring a day ahead at 6w3d and has a healthy heartbeat of 125.

I didn’t start crying until I hugged my husband. I am so happy. And still in shock. I feel really good. Just veiny, sore boobies, stuffy nose and the fatigue that hits me at noon. This of course had me worried. But too, I couldn’t help but think back to our previous losses.

But I am so very thankful. I’m still crossing my fingers and hoping the second trimester hurries up.

    Thank goodness Jen! 3rd time was the charm. I know you are miss fertile when it comes to BFPs, but I know how scary waiting to see something INSIDE the sac was for you.

    My goodness, can you believe we all got pregnant from our April/May IVF/FET cycles? All of us standing there. You. Me. Duffy. Denise. Insanity!

    I’m doing the happy dance for you.
