A Flicker!

Mom, Dad, Grandma to be and I all went down to the clinic for our six week ultrasound today. They called us back relatively quickly and once the nurse realized the size of our party she had us wait a few minutes while she prepared a bigger room. Mom to be and I went back first, and then once I was all situated she went and got the others. After about thirty minutes of visiting and waiting, another nurse came in and said the doctor had just been called in for an egg retrieval and would be another 15 to 20 minutes. We ended up waiting around an hour total but the results were well worth the wait. At six weeks, four days he said we might not be able to see the heart beat yet and he was mainly looking for the placement of the embryo and implantation. Everything was “perfect” and he pointed out the yolk sac and the flicker of a heart beat. Our next appointment is a week and a half away for another ultrasound and to discuss weaning off the progesterone and delestrogen. We are officially due December 11, 2010!
