I Thought I Saw a Baby…

… I Did!  I did taw a baby!

Sure enough, there it was on the static-y screen, surrounded by a clear circle in the sea of white snow.  A perfect fetal pole, with a tiny, flickering spot in the middle.  The beginnings of a heart!  Our baby is advanced, peoples!

The heartbeat was too faint to hear, but we could see it faintly and the machine picked it up at 150 beats per minute.  HCG came back at 5590 (we needed at least 5,300 for perfect doubling), and progesterone at 34.1.

I’m so happy my mom got to be there with me.  Troy’s mom called and asked if she could come ‘hear the heartbeat,’ so she, Troy and I will go back on Monday the 26th to hear the heartbeat and peek at how it’s growing.

The doc wrote VIUP in my chart – Viable Intra-Uterine Pregnancy.  In MY chart.  Along with “high miscarriage risk,” but he said everyone gets that for the first three months, especially if you’ve undergone reproductive assistance to get pregnant.

Oh baby, please stay.
