Apologies if you've already seen this ...
There's a bub in there! Last week we could only see the gestational sac. This time we saw that, and the yolk sac within, as well as the fetal pole and the flickering heart!! It was amazing! I'm so relieved. I felt physically ill with nerves on the way there, and so did DH. FS even printed up the picture and put it in a little display card saying congratulations from IVF Australia. Very cute.
The measurement was 4.5 mm, which puts it at 6 weeks 2 days - whereas going by LMP, it would be 6 weeks 6 days. He wasn't at all bothered by that, and even said at such a small size the scan could be a millimetre out and that makes the difference of a few days. or even just because it was a bit slow for the HCG to take off. So I guess we won't know for sure until I see the ob on 15th and it's a bit easier to measure. But by the standard LMP dates, EDD is 20/12 ... by his dates from measurement today it's Christmas Eve! Eeeek! I've been told by multiple doctors that I need a C section though, so he said that would make it between 10th & 17th. I think 12/12/12 is the lucky charm, but will see what the ob says.
Yay! Yay! Yay!
