6w2d Ultrasound

We saw a heartbeat! The ultrasound went great. The little bean was measuring 6w3d and had a heart rate of 124 bpm. I'm finally starting to relax a little and actually believe we might be taking home a new baby in February :)

The coolest part of the ultrasound was when the tech said to Lily, "You're gonna be big sister." And Lily looked a bit confused and said, "Big Sister...."

The RE gave each of us a hug and said we were ready to move on to the OB, but we could have another u/s in a few weeks if we wanted one. I am on the fence about that, mostly because I already have enough doctor appointments. But, I may schedule it just for the peace of mind.

I can't believe I may never see my RE again. That seems just crazy (and a little sad).

Ultrasound Today

I ended up having a "surprise" ultrasound today. This morning I called the RE's office because I've had a pain in my left upper back for three days, and I had read shoulder pain could be a sign of an ectopic pregnancy. My RE was glad I called and told me to come in right away.

I was fairly confident that it wasn't ectopic because I hadn't had any other symptoms, but I was so glad he told me to come in because I wanted the extra piece of mind! I just can't get over the disbelief that it could happen so easily this time around, and I was feeling nervous because some of my symptoms had disappeared.

We saw a gestational sac with a yolk sac, in my uterus, which was perfect for 5w1d. No signs of ectopic. Yay! I feel much more relaxed now!

As far as symptoms go, I had been experiencing some mild morning sickness, but that went away a few days ago. I had a few days where I felt nothing other than bloat. But the past two days I have been so sleepy, and I've been hungry!

As far as the back pain goes, I also called CF clinic because I thought it could be lung related. Because I'm not having any other symptoms of a chest infection, they think it's probably just a sore muscle and suggested I get a massage ;) I'll take that diagnosis!
