Tomorrow's the Big Day!

Tomorrow is the day we find out how many babies are baking!  Our first ultrasound is at 8:00 in the morning.  My IPs are coming down to find out how many bundles of joy are on the way for them!  I'm hoping they are able to get a good show!

My RE originally wanted me to go in at the end of last week, right around the 6 week mark.  I decided to put it off to a little closer to 7 weeks, because the heart doesn't start beating until right around 6 weeks.  I was worried we would go in and see a sac but no heartbeat, and then have to spend a week or so worrying about whether the baby was alive before returning again at around this time anyway to find out.

Of course I am nervous that there won't be a heartbeat.  By now, there will be one if there is ever going to be one.  Since I am taking the pregnancy hormones artificially, it's possible that the baby could die but I wouldn't miscarry because I am fooling my body into thinking it's still pregnant.  So it's going to be a big relief to see at least one strong little heartbeat in there tomorrow!


  1. Good luck to you all tomorrow!! Can't wait to hear the news!
