I'm sorry I've been MIA. I just really needed a break from PO after my first u/s.
First, I just have to say that I absolutely hate u/s. I've had waaaay too many u/s and I rarely get good news. I had my first u/s at 6 weeks and we didn't see a h/b. I was crushed. I know it was still early but, with my last pregnancy, I was able to see h/b at 5w6d so I pretty much thought it was over. A week later I had another u/s. At 7 weeks we were (barely) able to see a h/b. The baby was positioned in a difficult spot to get to but we did get to hear the h/b. The heart rate was 140. I had another u/s today at 8w1d and the little bean was measuring 8w3d with a h/r of 176! I am so, so, so thankful right now but I know I'm not out of the woods yet. I've been able to see/hear h/b with all of my losses so I'm just trying to take it one day at a time. But, for now, I'm very thankful.
I've also been suffering from m/s and extreme fatigue so I haven't been online much. I'll try to be better about posting, though. My next u/s is in a week and a half....please keep everything crossed for me.
Oh and obviously, there's only ONE little bean!
