Whew, I feel like I have been in a little bit of a cave.  I was waiting to post after we knew we actually had a baby in there since I am a superstitious worry wart and had convinced myself I was going to be horribly disappointed today.  The thought of posting all the goofy giddy feelings I’ve been going through seemed premature until I really SAW what the heck we were dealing with.

I am so happy to say that it is one little bean who, at 6w2d is around 5w6d.  I asked the Doc if she thought this is an issue only to be reassured that our peanut is falling right in the window of what they want to see development wise.  Also got to see the tiniest flutter of a heartbeat!!  Whuh-WHUH!?  Couldn’t believe my eyes.  Chris and I were slack-jawed at this little flicker of light on the screen.  Never thought this would happen for us.

They want us to come in next week for one more ultrasound just to be sure everything is developing as it should before releasing us to my OB.  Also to measure the heart rate of Mr. bean (or Miss. bean).

I thought today would assuage my nerves…and it did…for an hour or two.  Now I need to know that our bean has a strong heartbeat.  THEN I’ll feel better.  Right?  Riiiiiight.  Then it will be a thousand other things.

Anyhow, we are both over the moon with feet firmly on the ground.  It is still so early but we’re taking each day, each week as it comes and crossing fingers all the way.

Finally went in this morning to find that we have risen to 3, 383! Thank goodness. Viability ultrasound is next week, which should tell us if there is anything wrong or how many peanuts we got in there. Also, there could be a visible heartbeat, but as milestones go…I just want to take each one as it comes and not get too far ahead of ourselves. Crossing fingers and not taking any moment for granted.

So here is what the beta snapshot looks like:

12dp3dt: 169

14dp3dt: 375

19dp3dt: 3,383

The Infamous 2WW: I can honestly say that the whole “two week wait” was an exercise in futility. I never had anything that jumped out at me or screamed anything other than ordinary aches, pains or Endometrin side effects. It was really no different that any other two week wait I had really ever had before. I will say this, I’m glad I never took a home pregnancy test. Chris made me promise not to and I think, in the end, it was for the best since I had already made up my mind that this cycle was a bust anyhow.   So getting the news of our bfp was astounding and truly shocking.  I could barely dial the phone to call Chris I was shaking so hard.  I was so sure it was over for us this go round.  I have never been so happy to be so wrong in my life.


Keeping every single appendage crossed and hoping our ultrasound goes well.

One step at a time…
