Hey Everyone! Thanks so much for the encouragement! I really needed to hear it. Well, I had my 2nd Dr.'s visit yesterday at 8wks. (I had seen the heartbeat on an trans/vag u/s at 6wks). Anyway, I was really concerned, because 8 wks is as far as I have gotten and the Dr. decided to do a reg u/s in her office on an old machine she has (she sends us to the hospital normally). So my bladder wasn't that full and the machine was old, but she wanted to put my mind at ease. To her surprise and mine we were able to see the heartbeat, but barely because of the quality of the u/s. So naturally I'm feeling pretty confident now.

As far as the progesterone stuff, the Dr is keeping me on it until 10 weeks.

Happy Wishes and Prayers for All of Ya'll

Woohoo! This is terrific news! Isn't it the best when these things can set our minds at ease? They say once you see the heartbeat you have a 90+% chance of going to term! (and I was told this personally by my doc when I saw my baby's heartbeat at 8w4d). Congrats and here's to a happy, healthy and UNeventful remainder to your pregnancy!!
