We Heard the Heartbeat!
I had another doctors appointment yesterday and we were able to hear the heartbeat. It was strong and fast so everything still seems to be on track, which is a good thing. I felt like crap yesterday and was so thrilled to have the doctor poke and prod me and push on my stomach but it is all definatley worth it. I have an ultrasound in 2 weeks (the 6th of June) and will post some pics then. It will actually look like a baby rather than a gummie bear. I doubt we will be able to find out the sex of it then but I do get to have another ultrasound the week of July 9th to the 15th and they will be able to tell by then.
Simply said, Infertility sucks! I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. That being said, it has taught me a lot about strength, compassion and patience. I am extremely fortunate to have conceived a perfect, beautiful daughter via my 1st IVF cycle. I am hoping that we will be just as fortunate this time around.
