Ultrasound #1

So I woke up multiple times last night, mostly to pee but also because it felt like Christmas Eve. I got my step daughter up for school at 6 and laid back down since our appointment wasn't until 8:30. Of course I didn't sleep at all, got up before 7 and jumped in the shower. I got myself all dolled up and we were out the door at 8!

My first beta was 248 which had me super excited, then came my second beta... 405. The doubling time was 68 hours and within range but it had me nervous so that's why I went back for the third beta and when it came back at 1,698 with a doubling time of 48 hours I took a deep breath and relaxed. BUT I have barely had any symptoms. No boob soreness, kind of tired, only got nauseous once so I was stressed. Of course the ohss was a constant reminder that something was going on. But I was still nervous...



So without further ado.... Here is my ultrasound picture. If you aren't in a good place you can stop here and I understand 100%.

The doctor said that both heartbeats were strong so I am praying so hard that they both stay beating strong for a LONG TIME. He said that I am 6 weeks and 4 days pregnant, but the nurse had calculated 6 weeks 2 days. I will go with the doctor. Thank you all for your prayers and good thoughts because I have felt them all! I won't go back for two weeks. I really wish that we were going back next week but I will take that as a good sign that he wants us to wait. So the next picture will be at 8 weeks 4 days. If everything goes as planned we will be released at that time to our OB. I am feeling so blessed! I know that I will be super cautious for a while but I am not going to let it ruin my happiness right now. I have vowed to enjoy every moment of this pregnancy. And so I shall!!
