    I was so nervous going to the RE's office today. I made DH come home and drive with me instead of meeting me just in case it was bad news. I didn't want to have to drive 45 min. back home by myself.

    We got there and the PA came in - whom I love. I'm very comfortable with her and she knows she can be straight up with me. She was obviously concerned about ectopic. She asked me a bunch of questions about symptoms and pain, and we reviewed my numbers.

    She did the u/s and immediately found a clear sac! She said that she was thinking if there was one she'd have to hunt around for awhile, but nope - it was right there, crystal clear. It's right where it's supposed to be! My ovaries are not swollen and everything looks normal so far. It looks like this baby was just a late implanter. He/she is grounded for all of this worry.

    We go back for a follow-up u/s on March 21. At that point, we should be able to see the heartbeat. I am officially 6 weeks pregnant!!!!!!! Holy crap - I can't believe I finally typed that!!

    I will be 17 weeks at my sister's wedding, so just obvious to the casual observer, which I'm actually pretty excited about. I'm glad I ordered my dress two sizes too big!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm still in shock, and the last three weeks of roller-coaster numbers still has me a little concerned, but I'm finally excited today. Mike is over the moon. This is amazing.

    Mike and I went for our follow-up ultrasound this morning. Last week we saw a sac, but it was too early to see anything else. Given our crazy numbers, we were just glad it was in the right place!

    The PA did our u/s today, and she found the little flash of the heartbeat right away. She looked around for a minute, and then said, "Wait a minute!" SHE FOUND ANOTHER HEARTBEAT IN THE SAME SAC! We're having identical twins!!!!!!!!!!!

    She said that almost never happens with infertility treatments - she's only seen identicals a few times. She couldn't even enter it into the fertility computer program the right way - it assumes fraternal!

    We are in shock. After seeing only one sac, it never occurred to us that the embryo would have split! I started laughing and crying at the same time, and Mike just stared. We can't believe it. We have another u/s at the RE on April 1 - then we'll be released to a perinatologist.
