Ultrasound Details...

Sorry for the quick post yesterday ladies....I was at work and just wanted to update everyone so that you didn't have to wait all day.

Firstly, I want to thank God for my little bean. Seems like He heard all of our prayers but please do keep them coming!

Secondly, thank you all for your congrats, and well wishes. It really means the world to me.

So the story....

I was so nervous. DH met me at the office but by the time he got there I was already undressed and sitting on the table. He called and said he was in the elevator so the tech went out and got him. I was sitting there clearly shaking, feeling like I was about to throw up...just nervous!

The tech says lay back and relax, so she start asking me questions about the last beta, and how many we transferred ect. Gives us the don't freak out if you don't see a heartbeat because its early speech and made me verbally agree not to freak out if its not there. I said okay I won't. She said at this point we want to see a sac and the yolk and thats all good at this point. I said okay. She said the heartbeat could be there because it can start beating at 5w6d between 6w3d so don't freak out...I said okay.

So she puts in the d!ldo cam and says I see a sac....I just took a deep breath as I stared at the ceiling...DH is looking at the screen like he really knows what he is looking at. LOL! Then she says and a yolk sac. I shook my hands over my chest. You know how you shake water off your hands...well mine was the excited shake like OMG shake. Then she said and a heartbeat....at that very moment the tears flowed as I laughed and cried.

DH immediately says how many heartbeats... (LOL...men!) She said only one...he said okay...so whats the sex of the baby...I burst out laughing and she said well its about the size of a tadpole right now so really too small to tell. He was like oh....okay, well I think boy by the way the heart is beating. LOL! All this time I'm sitting there still laughing, still crying, still shaking. They kept asking me are you okay, I said yes, I'm fine...yes, I'm good. She then turns the screen to me so I can see the sac, and the yolk and she points out the little heartbeat. I said do you know the BPM or is it too early. She said yeah its really too early so we don't even try to tell right now. I said okay....I was just content with seeing the white little flicker. I'm sitting there looking at the screen like wow....thats really in my belly. Amazing!

She then went on to measure my ovaries since they were huge from the IVF and then I met with the lovely Dr. S. He was so happy. He came in and immediately gave me a hug and said how awesome the baby looked and he was so happy for me and so proud of me. We chatted for a while and he asked do we have any questions....DH does not even hesitate not one second and said yeah Doc that sex thing, we good now? I just put my face in my hands so embarrassed....Dr. S just laughs and said you really are a typical man huh. Dr. S said I know its been a while and yes you have the okay. Dr. S was like I'll give you all your time in here when we're done talking and tell the nurses to stay away. I was like yeah right! LOL!

Then I asked whats next when can I come back. And he said well ideal would be 2 weeks when you're 8 weeks because you would see so much more but I know if you're like my wife you hate waiting and you want them early and frequent. I was like yep, sure do. He was like okay I'm fine with you coming in next week then. I was like great! But then I remembered that I will be out of town from Sunday to Sunday so two weeks it is anyway.

May 7th is the next ultrasound.

Congrats on the wonderful ultrasound!

Maybe after all of the alone-time our husbands spend in the RE's office, some of them are turned on just by being in the building? LOL!

Best wishes.
