A load off my shoulder

Updated with u/s pictures!!

After a weekend of worrying and anxiety--I went to S crying on Saturday convinced my boobs were shrinking and that the only pregnancy symptom I have was slowly going away!! Poor guy, I think I am totally driving him crazy--today's ultrasound proved that things are just going fine.

We have one beautiful baby!!! One baby that has a really strong heartbeat!! Not only did we see a flicker on the screen we heard it(the heartbeat was measuring at 120 bpm)!! The wand lady amplified the volume and asked us "are you ready to hear your baby's heartbeat?" It was so amazing and unreal. All I remember was looking at that screen and I could feel S's hand squeezing my hand. She was really good at explaining everything and she just kept saying everything looks great.

So for now, I feel like a load is off my shoulder....I know I still have a long way to go, but hearing that heartbeat just makes a world of a difference!

P.S. I will try to put some pictures later tonight when I get home, I just couldn't wait to post this.

I also get to stop one of my progesterone suppositories--either the injection or the gel--I think we can all guess which one is going to go!

I am so happy for you. A strong heart beat is the best news at this point. It's funny, nobody other than an IF patient would want pg symptoms.

How amazing that must have been! I'm so very happy for your good news. Who needs morning sickness and sore boobs when you have a heartbeat to reassure you? Congrats!

Do you go back for another ultrasound with the RE? Or did he release you to an OB? Not sure how all this works ...

Great news! I am so happy that things are going well for you. There has been so much bad news in bloggerville recently, I am glad that there are signs of hope out there.

I have a tear of joy in my eye for you. It is so wonderful to hear that you heard such a strong hb! At this moment I am still resting at home and obsessing about every symptom that comes and goes. The betas are now finished and while the numbers looked OK last week, what has happened b/w then and now. Is it still growing? And I have to wait until next bloody Monday for the u/s!! So I totally know what you mean about a weight off your shoulders. I feel like if I see that u/s and things look OK, then I will finally be able to feel some joy. Until then, I wait and worry!
