Hi ladies, our US went really well. They were able to see the yolk sac and a fetal pole. Also the heartbeat flickering. Still too early to count it because it's close to the uterine wall. They didn't see any problems or bleeding going on, cervix is nice and closed. I will probably spot from the US now. It was pretty uncomfortable, more so than the monitoring ones we did with IVF. I'm relieved, but still nervous. Hoping that things stay on track! I measured 5w5d today which is close to the 6w0d we've been going by.

Gina- I did get a picture, but it's in the car.Oops. You can really only see the sac and a little blob. Hoping to see more Thursday!
Simone- We do! Yay, we go back Thursday for another US and hopefully they will be able to count the hearbeat easier.
AFM- So I went to start the switch from my current prgesterone to the new hydroxyprogesterone and saw that the new stuff is all crystalized at the bottom and won't mix. Called the pharmacy and they are sending out new stuff, but it won't be here till Tuesday. Guess the daily injections are still the thing for now. Bummer. Feels like I've had a lot of issues with getting my progesterone meds.

Amy- I should only have to take the progesterone until about 10 weeks, so that is good. Yep, only one little one in there. I feel a lot better about our choice to transfer two for sure. Seeing the little flicker of the heartbeat was so so cool. Not a whole lot to see, but so much more than what happened with our last pregnancy. I'm excited to go back on Thursday and see more. You're 15 weeks already, woo hooo!
Nicole- How many weeks were you before they released you to a regular OB? It's a question I keep forgetting to ask them.
