The docs wife came in just to see me for this u/s and everyone gathered. They were doing retrievals today so I had to wait an hour which NEVER happens there.
Doc was wanting good news as much as I was I swear. He saw the heartbeat right away and the embryo was much easier to get a good view of than last time.
He took a measurement and it was 8w1d!!!!!!!!! That is 9 days growth in 6 days!!!!! I was over the freaking moon!!! I had them go get Bliss who was playing in the truck with roomie and he came in and was overwhelmed too, he was so happy. He got to hear the heart beat too. The heart beat was 176 up from 131 last week. Doc said this is perfect for week 8 and it will go down a little week 9 and 10. Let me know if you know of that too because it is my only niggle of paranoia.
He took pics of the embryo and of the heart beating for me and everyone was outside the room to give big hugs after.
FINALLY some good news. Everyone was so pulling for us, for this.
I go back next Monday for another u/s but this is the furthest I have gotten besides Bliss with a pregnancy. All m/c's the embryo stopped growing in the 6th and 7th week so this is a huge relief.
I feel like I can breathe some for the first time in literally years. I am still a bit tentative but oh so much more relieved.
My nose continues to drive me crazy and my tummy feels yucky much of the second half of the day which I am thrilled about.
I will very shortly have not even one item of clothing that fits and all of it, I am thrilled.
Now I just need to work of more breathing, letting it sink in, and trying to remain calm and positive. I also need a nap.
