8 Weeks & 2 Days!

Okay, okay I admit it I have been a really bad blogger. Bad! A lot has happened in the past two weeks and boy do we have to fill everyone in!

SO what has been going on?!

We had an appointment with our IVF doctor today to get another ultrasound I was so excited and not one tad nervous. Its amazing my nervousness has calmed down dramatically. We were running late to our appointment and trust me this never happens. I was already excited enough it didn't help! We arrived and our favorite nurse Melinda walked us back to our usual room #3 and we waited for the doctor to come in. Finally before you knew it I was laying down waiting for the wand and we saw the most beautiful thing ever. A beautiful baby peanut. Measuring beautifully at 8 weeks and 1 day! The doctor said this is perfect because each baby has a give or take of 6 days for growth so the fact that our little peanut is growing right on target is awesome! Grow baby, grow!

Then.......we heard the heartbeat! I instantly fell in love and the beautiful sound that we heard was the most amazing thing ever. The doctor said our BPM were around 165-170. Perfect!

We then got up and got two huge hugs from both the doctor and the nurse and he said "congratulations"! We then got released and this is the last time we will see him until we are ready for baby #2 which will be a long, long time from now, LOL!

So now we are off to our OBGYN. We will be working with my OBGYN that I have been seeing for a year already. We love her and feel comfortable with her. Our next appt will be in two weeks which we will be 10 weeks & 1 day!

Our little peanut sure is growing! The first one was taken at 4 weeks 6 days and bottom one is 8 weeks!

I am so excited for you! What a great post. Thank you for the sweet comment you left on my MTHFR post. I did google myself into a panic (there is some scary stuff out there!), but I have my folate supplements now and am feeling much better about things. Can't wait until your next update :)

So exciting to hear the heartbeat! Peyton's heartbeat was always above 150 bpm, which old wives tales say is predictor of a girl :P

I'm so excited for you two! I found your blog through posts about Northern CA clinics. We are starting with the same RE later this month for our first IVF cycle. Reading about your process has helped tremendously while we wait for our appointment, and reinforced that we're making a good choice with the RE!
