I'm getting anxious for tomorrow's ultrasound! Thank goodness I go in the morning at 9:45 and I don't have to wait too much. I'm excited as heck but I'm scared to get too excited in case they see something not great. I'll be at least 5w5d but it could be a few days more. My cycles are sometimes 28 days and other times are 31 so I based it on the 31 model but they were started to get closer to 28 again once I stopped Clomid and since I got pregnant on the first round of Femara I don't know how it would have turned out. I'd love to be like two or three more days along and get to see the heartbeat. Lol. I'm not expecting it though. I've promised a few people already that I won't get upset if we don't see the heartbeat since it's so early but I want to so bad! I still feel like I'm living in a fantasy or something and I feel like seeing anything on the ultrasound is going to help make it feel a little more real at least.
I'm also super glad I got a job today and taught first grade even though I was fighting throwing up all day because I got to stay super busy and not worry all day long. I'm so looking forward the ultrasound but I'm so scared they'll say something is wrong! AHHHHH! I wish I could turn of my brain cause I'm just rambling now. I'm going to go attempt to take a nap and shut off my brain for a while. Lol.
Update: Here is our baby's first ultrasound picture! Yay! They said it's too early to see the hb or fetal pole but that that's completely normal so no worries. We did see the yolk sac and gestational sac and we saw where the baby is hanging out right now. And just one, thank goodness. I was worried about twins since I might be high risk anyway. Anyway here is baby's first picture! So excited and the doc said that everything looks perfect right now and he doesn't foresee any problems.
There's a chance that you'll get to see a heartbeat, but there's also a chance they won't be able to see anything, not even an egg sac. They're tricky things, these early ultrasounds.
With the baby before that I was 5w6d and we saw a hb (I know this because it's in my signature), but I think with DD we were about 5 1/2 weeks and just saw an egg sac. I remember I threw up that morning before the appointment because I was so scared it would be bad news. That was one of just two times the whole pregnancy when I threw up, and both were before appointments!
This time around I'm with the midwife practice from the beginning (for the first 10 weeks with DD I was with an OB who had been trying to find out why I was miscarrying), and they won't see me until 8 weeks unless there's a problem. In other words, while I really am sad not to get an early u/s, I'm hoping there is no good reason for me to have one!
Anyway, good luck tomorrow! I really, really hope you get to hear that heartbeat!

6w5d on 6/19/07 hb of 107 bpm 10/1/07. Lost at 7w6d
I REALLY hope you get to at least see that little heart beating, but try not to panic if you don't. It's still really early! Seeing a yoke sack is a great sign too!

I'm so excited for you! Really hoping you get to see your bean's heart beating away. My OB said 5w5d is the earliest you can see a heartbeat so not to stress but I understand wanting that reassurance. Can't wait to hear about it!

I'm just like you Cait even though I "know" I may not see a lot and it can still be just fine I know if I don't I'll worry. I think I'll be okay if we don't see the heartbeat because I know that's iffy right now but I'll want to at least see something. I've never been pregnant before and I've always had medical problems so it's hard for me to fathom something medical going well. I keep expecting everything to go wrong. DH says it's just from years of negative medical things happening and he's probably right. Nothing appears out of the ordinary so far but I worry...plus I'm just really good at worrying I guess. Lol. I fell asleep on the couch and dreamed about the ultrasound over and over again. All were good outcomes in my dream. Hopefully it's prophetic. Haha. Can't wait to update you all tomorrow and hopefully with good news!
There are way to many of you in Nov 2012 that I'm stalking
I hope you get good results at your U/S!

I hope things go great for you tomorrow! Remember I had my first u/s and measured 5 wks 5 days and didnt get to see a heartbeat, but 5 short days later we got to see it I will cross my fingers and say a prayer that you get to see it tho!! Just know that things may still be just fine if you dont! Besides, if you dont, then you might get to schedule another ultrasound a little further down the road
