/ The RE's Muse: One

The RE's Muse

After 4 years of infertility, 2 surgeries, 1 miscarriage, and 19 months of high risk pregnancies, hubby and I now have two little women in our lives--one a toddler, the other not far behind. Buckle your seatbelts, it's gonna be a wild ride.

One

That whoosh you heard all the way from here? That was the sound of me exhaling in relief.

Today's u/s found one appropriately sized and located gestational sac, one appropriately sized embryo, and one gloriously beating heart.

Today marks 5w6d, and the embryo (!) is measuring a few days ahead, which makes sense since it's quite possible that implantation took place around day 8 or 9 as that's when my initial cramping began. Given the variation in measurements, my EDD is varying between the first and second weeks of February.

In other news, the spotting has stopped, hopefully for good but we'll see. I'm back for a second u/s with the RE on July 6th and I also have my first OB appt on July 3rd. I still can't believe this is happening. Sometimes I think that I'm imagining this. If anything though, today's appt confirmed that I'm not. It is real and, yet, surreal.

Thank you for your kindness and your support. It means the world to me.
