Short and Sweet

7 Week, 3 Day ultrasound happened this afternoon.  Baby's heartbeat was strong and very measurable this time!  Thank fucking god!  It was 145 bmp.  The fetal pole also grew by 2/3 from one week ago!  It jumped from a 3 something to a 9 something!  All good news.  I am measuring 3 days behind technically but my RE says that anything within a week is totally normal so everything is exactly where we want it.  Again, thank fucking god.  I have one more appointment in two weeks at the clinic and then we graduate!  Yikes!  This means that we actually need to find someone to deliver this baby (fingers crossed).  I have been casually searching midwives and there is one in particular I need to contact so more on that later!  Official due date is July 20th! 

Sorry for the terrible glare...I had to take a pic of the US with my phone.



Looking a little like a baby?

  1. So happy for you! If it helps at all, my little Ladybug was measuring a little behind at our first ultrasound (and maybe even our second, can't remember) and by 20 weeks she was all caught up and where she needs to be.

  6. So I have been following your blog for a while, but this is the first time I've commented. It's given me comfort to feel that I am not going through this infertility journey alone. Amazingly, I too got a BFP in November! We are only a few days apart! I'm due on July 18th! How fun is that! I hope we both have an easy 7.5 months. I feel like after everything we have been through, we at least deserve that, right?

    1. Hell yeah! I am humbled (and pleased) that reading my blog has made you feel less alone. That is how I fell into blogging. I felt so, so alone and sad. It is truly amazing what a difference it made in the last 6 months to be a part of this community! My attitude still had some low points (that's just unavoidable) but I never felt alone! Do you write? I would love to follow your pregnancy and we can compare notes! Congrats!

  7. Yes, definitely starting to look like a baby! I'm SO glad to hear everything went well with your ultrasound. I measured a day or two behind a couple of times during my early ultrasounds, but measured to the exact day at my NT scan. My RE said the same about within one week. So happy for you :)

    1. I am not worried. Repeat, I am not worried. My husband was like, look there's the big head... and then I was like, shut the eff up and don't ever talk about big heads! LOL!
