We got a heartbeat today!
It was one of those ultrasounds where the mama can't see the screen. Torture!!! But afterwards we got to see the doc, he gave us a cute little picture booklet that said "Baby's First Picture" on it and said everything looks good!
The baby's size and heart rate were consistent with my being 6 weeks. And by my cycle I am almost 7. BUT, here's a little TMI for you, my ovulation sticks didn't turn positive by day 17 so we quit testing. Apparently, I must have ovulated later on, which explains why the pregnancy tests didn't turn positive til day 31. It all makes sense now!!! (At least to me....)
I go back for another ultrasound in 2 weeks, at which point I will say goodbye to my new favorite doctor and head over to a regular OB-GYN. He is affiliated with a huge practice and I asked him to choose the best one for me. He said he had one picked out! haha.
Along with my baby aspirin, folic acid pill, vitamins, and progesterone, (that is a LOT of stuff for a girl who won't even take a Tylenol for a headache!!!) I am now on a low dose of Lovenox, which basically thins my blood even more than the aspirin. I will take this for about 4-6 weeks until the baby has developed larger pathways to get blood, thus making a blood clot less likely. So, I had to learn how to inject MYSELF with a needle today. Whoa. It was actually *kinda* fun.
We are SO excited and thankful and blessed. Thank you for thinking about us and praying for our little baby. This has been a great day!!! Keep praying -- we have a long way to go!!!
