It’s a baby!

It amazes me how much a fetus develops in ten days. Last week all I could see was a big blob (sorry baby) but today it completely resembled a baby. Mom to be and I went down for our last appointment with the fertility clinic, from here on we get to see a local ob. We had a perfect straight on view and could even see itty bitty fingers. It went from 17 to 34 mm – doubling it’s size in the last week and a half! We got to listen to the heart beat too, a strong 160 bpm. I have to stay on the progesterone and delestrogen for another week or two, then I’ll finally be done with injections! I don’t heat them up anymore and haven’t been having any problems. The doctors and nurses down there are amazing and so supportive. They wanted to make sure we keep in touch and call for anything. Watching the development from embryo to fetus was absolutely amazing and I am continually in awe of reproductive technology.
