Sorry that its been a few days. I'm just so nervous to do daily posts because they'll all say the same thing:

I'm happy and thankful each and every moment that I'm pregnant.
I'm sick as a dog (morning sickness), throw up/dry heave all day.
I'm terrified that I'm not getting a take-home baby.

I hate to be redundant so I'll sum it up in those three items.

Next ultrasound is this Friday at 10:30 am - with my local doctor. We should hear/see a heartbeat because I'll be 6w4d with an embryo that might still be measuring a day ahead. We'll see I guess.

Funny: when I called the local office to set up the u/s, I reached Old-Lady-Nurse in the Fertility Department who knows NOTHING about IVF or for that matter, most fertility treatment. All past conversations with her have been infuriating. She specifically asked when my transfer was. I told her it was on 1/20. I added that the retrieval was on 1/17 and that I had a Day-3 transfer. She said that on Friday I'll be barely 6 weeks. I tried to correct her. She said I was wrong. Way to use the transfer date as the "ovulation" date. Why are you in the OB/GYN's infertility department?

Anyways, here's a picture of last Saturday's ultrasound:

The fetal pole is at the top of the yolk sac, looks like a long, skinny "x".
Was measuring 3.1 mm.

We didn't see anything other than a yolk sac with the blighted ovum last May. So we're beating the last pregnancy, yay us I guess. I didn't realize till Saturday that this is only the second actual "baby" we've seen on an ultrasound in five pregnancies. I hope its still there in 2 days with a beating heart. I don't know what I'll do if this goes badly.....

I'll catch up on my commenting soon, I'm just really holding my breath till Friday.

My fingers are crossed that everything is perfect! You will go in on Friday and see a tiny little flickering heartbeat! HUGS!!!

Having only had one chemical pregnancy in my life, can only begin to image how you are feeling right now. I'm holding my breath with you, and sending happy, relaxing thoughts your way.

That's a beautiful first picture! I will be thinking about you on Friday. I keep telling myself that I won't get nervous before the next ultrasound, but somehow they are always nerve racking. Sending lots of positive thoughts your way.

Positive thoughts. Positive thoughts. Positive thoughts. Positive thoughts.

Coming your way.

I am thinking of you and your sweet baby. Very positive thoughts and prayers are coming your way. Looking forward to the update on Friday. A similar thing happened to me right about a year ago- we were waiting to see a heartbeat. Now little baby is sleeping soundly a room away. I know your dream will come true, as ours has!
