1st ultrasound
Tue, 08-02-2011 - 12:24pm
I was so nervous I barely slept last night. Today I was 5 wks 4 or 5 days. I went to my RE for ultrasound. We saw a sac, fetus, and the heartbeat!!!!! He was even able to get a rate of 105 which he said was great that we could even see a heartbeat and that rate was great for this early. All my measurements were looking good and I go back in two weeks for a repeat! I got lots of pictures today. DH was pretty amazed that we saw a heartbeat. I am so relieved. My doctor said rate of m/c goes down significantly after see heartbeat which was reassuring. I will stay on progesterone until at least 9 weeks.

That's so amazing that you saw the HB so early. What a strong little critter you've got in there! Hope your pg continues to be just as amazing. :)
