1st U/S successful!

We had our first ultrasound on Wednesday. We have one itty bity baby in there. The baby was measuring right at 1/2" and the heartbeat was 155. Dr. S played the heartbeat so loud and so long it was just wonderful. He said he could listen to that all day long. I've been released to my OB, another Dr. S and have my first appointment on the 4th. I can't believe this ball is finally rolling!

1st U/S today

Well today is the big day. I am very nervous. I didn't have to get up to pee last night so of course I have to dwell on that fact. Andy keeps pointing out how crappy I've felt lakely but I choose to ignore him and focus on my fear (that's just how I roll!). The u/s isn't until 3:45 this afternoon so it's going to be a long long day. I am keeping my fingers crossed for two embies so we never have to deal with this again but like I said before I have a feeling their is only one pumpkin head growing.

6 W plus

Well I've been feeling okay. Nausea has kicked in so I feel like crap most of the time, not that I'm complaining!! Really I am . . . a little. Can't wait for my u/s next week. I hope both embies stuck but I have a feeling I am having a singleton. I will be happy no matter what as long as my baby(ies) is healthy.

4th Beta

My 4th and final beta is 2702.3!!!!! Yea! One hurdle down, many many to go! Now I can sit tight until my u/s on the 25th.
Had a scary morning. I slipped on the ice and fell on my a$$ in my work parking lot. Of course I freaked out and came home to lie down. My RE's office said it was good that I fell on my butt instead of my belly and I should be okay but to let them know if any "odd symptoms" may arise. So far so good. No spotting or severe cramping.
God, please let this baby(ies) be okay!

3rd Beta

333! I am creeping up to 1000 slowly but surely. I have my last beta on Monday. My ultrasound has been scheduled for February 25th. I am still in the "cautiously optimistic" stage but I am getting a little better.
