Heart is A-Beatin'

WE ARE PREGNANT! I CAN SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS(or at least from the hill the cottage is on)..WE ARE REALLY HAVING A BABY!!

In the video, the circle is the yolk sac and the baby is above. You can clearly see the little flicker. It was 116 bpm, which is perfect.

I am totally, madly in love with our second miracle.


video

I stop my PIO injections and estrace. I continue on the prenatal, baby aspirin and endometrin. I return on the 26th for a last ultrasound and then am released to OB.


8 straight months of fertility treatments, over a hundred injections, bruises and blood, a full IVF cycle, 3 frozen embryos transfers, anxiety and stress, 8 embryos given a chance.


This post makes every second worth it.
