I am so happy but still cautious with my emotions.  My u/s yesterday had me up the entire night before with worry.  Although I haven't had any bleeding or cramping, I have been so nervous about the health of my baby.

The sonographer has become a friend and knew how stressed I was.  She slowly postioned the wand, and after what felt like 2 seconds says "There's your baby, hb is 142 and she measures 7 weeks 3 days - excellent"  I honestly could not stop crying.  There were weeks of relief in those tears.  We all hugged - me and the sonographer, me and the RE, it was really special.

The RE also said that the yolk sac is small in comparion to the baby, which dramtically drops the m/c rate.  Not sure what that meant, but didn't care.  I just felt more at ease seeing the baby and getting my photos :o)

Next and last u/s is in 2 weeks.  I will keep you all posted.  Good luck to all of you and thanks so much for your support!

Thank you all so much!  It's funny, after the news I called my Mom and my sister, then came here.  It's so nice to have you all here, I don't know what I would do without you.  I'm certainly not out of the woods, one bad thing about being an obsessive TTC-ver is that we know waaaay more than we should.  I know full well that there are still many hurdles to get past - but it's so nice to know I have you all supporting me.

I am praying for the next miracle on this board - with our determination, anything is possible.

Yippee!!! You had your first ultrasound!!! So excited for you. I also have never heard anything about the yolk sac statistic. Interesting though. I think I'll research it. Try to stay positive. I know all to well how hard that can be. Can't wait to hear about the next one. My cvs is quickly approaching. Next week Thursday to be exact. Yet another hurdle. Got to admit I am pretty scared.

Ironworkersdaughter: I can't wait to hear about your CVS.  I am pretty sure they will suggest it for me too.  It's all so scary isn't it?  Remember the carefree pregnancies we used to have when we were younger?  God I miss those days!  EEVERY DAY I think I might be having a m/c.....when I pee, when I feel the slightest cramp or twinge....oh and I am squeezing my boobs like i'm squeezing fresh oranges.  You will have to let me know when this insanity gets better.  You being a few weeks ahead kinda makes you like my big sis :o)
