Good Report!

Yesterday's visit went well.  There is a baby in there!  I was seriously worried about this.  But, whew!

The baby measured 6w5d but the gestational sac measured 7w2d, which is perfectly normal according to the doctor.  So, we went with the average of 7 weeks.  We knew we could not rely on the first day of my last menstrual cycle because I definitely did not ovulate on day 14.  Apparently I ovulated an entire week late, on day 21. 

God's timing is perfect.

We also heard the heart beat!  It was so cool.  Our baby's heart rate is 121.6.

Here is our baby's first picture:

The little fuzzy thing that has the plus signs on it is the baby.  The white blob up a little and to the right a bit is the yolk sac.  If we go with 7 weeks, our EDD is 6/12/13. 

Holy cow!  We have an EDD!

We are really excited.  I am still feeling nervous, and a little overwhelmed and unsure of how to feel.  But, definitely thankful for what God has done.

We are having dinner with my sister and her husband tomorrow night and as we're planning to tell them then.  We are planning the rest of our immediate family the weekend before we leave for our cruise, which will be around 9 1/2 weeks.  I am a little nervous telling them all so early, but it will be hard to get together with everyone before Christmas since we're going to be cruising over Thanskgiving.  And, we want to tell everyone in person.  Plus, we'll have already had another OB appointment at the RE by then.

Now, to find an OB.  Ugh.


  1. So happy and excited for you! If you feel like driving to ATL I love my OB. Switched from one I didn't like at all and I am so much happier and more at ease. Another IVF friend recommended him and I am so happy I switched. He answers all of my questions and even the hubby loves him too. Just what I needed after all of the anxiety and stress of the last two deliveries.

  2. Hi- I am just catching up on your wonderful news! I am so happy for you! I know that this has been a long road for you...... COngrats a million times :) Enjoy this very special time!

  3. YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!! I'm unbelievably excited for you! This is such a blessing from God!
