A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Unfortunately I don't have any pictures because they're in Johnny's car... so here's my thousand words (though I'll probably get tired of writing much sooner than that!)

The ultrasound... *drumroll* showed 2 perfect, fabulous embryos.  According to RSC I am at 7w3d (I guess they calculate based on the actual IVF and not Day 1).  

Baby A was measuring right on target- a perfect 7w3d-er... the yolk sac, gestational sac, size, and heart rate were all perfectly aligned with a 7w3d baby.  (Heart rate was 149bpm).  

Baby B was fabulous as well.  This guy was a little ahead of 7w3d at 7w5d (Johnny says he's an overachiever).  Sizes were still fabulous and heart rate was 153bpm.  So... we have graduated.  No longer to visit RSC.  Though they will always hold a soft spot in my heart!

The ultrasound itself was awesome.  I was kind of in a bad mood at first because Johnny was 15 minutes late picking me up at school and I was worried about being late.  But then once the ultrasound started the bad mood went away.  Johnny was super excited and incredibly amazed (he had no idea what to expect!).  I on the other had wasn't quite as excited... just amazingly relieved.  The whole time it was like little bits of worry were falling away when all the measurements were coming out just right.  This isn't to say I'm not ecstatic!  I just needed the relief that the ultrasound brought.  :)

So, this are looking great and I am SOOO excited!  I don't have quite so much worry in me anymore!

I'll add pictures later-- promise!

Congrats! And how cool you've graduated. My RE's hanging on to me for another week or so, which is fine with me because he and his staff rock.

Don't freak too much about measurements. It's all about the progress they make.

Here's to some big ol' growth in the next few weeks!

Take care!
