Another TTCAM grad

Hi all-

I've been lurking over her for a few days trying to get up the courage to post. I got my BFP on Saturday morning & am now 4w3d. Still very early-but I'm feeling very good about this pg. I have my 1st u/s on 6/15-but will only be 6w2d so not sure what we'll be able to see at that point. My Dr. is going to give me weekly u/s until we're all comfortable with things. Hopefully that will be soon & I can get on with relaxing & enjoying everything. I look forward to meeting many new friends.

I had an u/s at 6w3d and we were able to see a heartbeat and a little peanut - no bigger than a grain of rice!

Hi Laura-

I also have my first u/s on 6/15. I will be 6w5d, and I am hoping to see that little flutter. I was a lurker and occasional poster on the TTCAM board. How about we send each other good thoughts on our u/s day?? Congrats on the pregnancy and hopefully an h&h 9 months!

Welcome, Laura! Congrats on your BFP! I posted below, but I'll say it again: I love your due date! It's my birthday! It's so exciting to see the new January & February mommy-to-bes arriving here!

Good luck at your u/s!! I hope you see a HB!

Laura,

That is great you have such a cooperating doc. The u/s's really can help put you at ease. For me it was....

Hospital u/s: 6w3d, saw yolk sac, fetal pole & hb

In-office u/s: 7w4d, could only see hb

In-office u/s: 8w4d, could only see hb

In-office u/s: 10w4d, could see a little wiggling butt & kicking legs!

Doppler use only: 12w4d, hb the moment the doppler hit my tummy.

I would say by the 2nd u/s I was already feeling better, but when they kept offering I kept accepting! Each one only made my belief this was a REAL pg stronger.

SBV's!!!

Congrats!!!

Bonnie 12/5 (13w4d)

Thanks everyone. It's great to have such a warm welcome & I'm very excited about the possibility of seeing a hb at the 6w2d u/s. I thought for sure it would just be seeing a yolk sac at that point. I need to convince myself that may be all we'll see so I don't get disappointed if that's all we see. It's also great to catch up with so many ttcam grads. I recognize a lot of names & it makes me feel very good to know that you're all doing well.

Thanks again!
