One little overachiever

This morning we had our first sonogram.  It was a transvaginal, but that part wasn’t so bad.  Here is the amazingly good news.  There is one gestational sack, the RE was able to see and show us the yolk sac, the fetal pole, and even the tiny flicker of the heartbeat.  That last one was a bit of a surprise, as it’s early to see it.  It was too small to measure so we get to go back for a 2nd scan a week from Monday.  Overall we are measuring 6 weeks 1 day, which is a couple of days ahead.  That would explain my rather high beta numbers from last week.  The news could not have been better and we are over the moon with excitement.  For those of you that like these things, here’s the picture.  We just have to take their word for it that it will actually be a baby someday.  Right now, it’s about the size of a sprinkle.

  2. So, so exciting!!! And once you see the heart beat your chance of miscarriage decreases….I’m not sure of the stats, but the ER doc told me that. Maybe you can take a small sigh of relief, maybe?

  13. Read this one after the other one – you see a hb and it’s a healthy one, you’re pretty much entirely out of the woods.
