Sonogram #2 was today…

and I was a bit sad that hubby wasnt able to get out of a meeting to come with me so I was a bit anxious about going alone…I was hopeful to see a heartbeat since I am 6 weeks 6 days…well not only did I see it I actually heard it!!!  I cannot believe it…it was the most beautiful sound I had ever heard…it was 124bpm which is perfect for where I am now…I think now they say that once you hear the heartbeat you are at a reduced risk for a miscarriage so that really lifts a weight off my heart and shoulders…I know its not guaranteed but we have made it past another hurdle…I was told to make my first ob appt. for a week after my last sono which will be next Wednesday…I cannot believe that soon I will be like any other pregnant woman…I know its crazy to say that but going through IVF you do not feel like a “normal” person who can get pregnant without intervention…I am so excited!!!!!!!!

Here is the bean!!!

    Beautiful pic of your baby bean! I know exactly what you’re talking about with feeling like a “normal” person during this process. I mean, is that even possible? I’m not sure I will be able to feel normal until I’m holding my baby in my arms.

    Yeah!!! Hearing that heart beat is absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!!! So fun to be able to graduate to a regular OB…but crazy too, right? I was just so surprised to find out how laid back my OB’s office was compared to the RE. “Oh…we can’t get you in for about 4 weeks, but that’s ok” sort of thing….I had to get used to getting in line again. : ) Take care!!!!!

    Yipee! We didn’t get to hear ours last week but I am hoping we will at our final infertlity sono next week. I too have my first OB appt a week after that, and was also relieved to see a heartbeat because I knew that really lowered the chance of miscarriage. YAY for beans!
