One baby, in the proper place!

Well - we saw all there was to see this morning - one yolk sac... nothing in the wrong place. It was way to early to see a heartbeat - so I go back on the 22nd for another u/s.

Phew.

I was nervous for a bit - because the first part (the non-vaginal u/s) she didn't say anything. And I didn't have a good view of the screen. And then she left the room to get the doc for the vaginal u/s. And took a long time. I started to get nervous! But then she came back in with the doc, and he was super nice. They assured me that they weren't expecting to see anything except a yolk sac (which they did) and just wanted to be sure the other embryo wasn't lurking in a bad place (which it wasn't).

One hurdle over!

Whew. The US tech should be behind a curtain. I have gotten myself all a twisted twitter over their facial expressions. I'm so so glad that they saw what they expected.

The other embryo?

Wonderful news! I bet it's going to be a tough wait until the 22nd. It is amazing how slowly time can move when waiting for the u/s to see the heartbeat. So hopefully you have lots and lots of knitting planned between now and then!

I'm surprised they even did anything but the transvaginal. They never tried a transabdominal on me until 11.5 weeks for the NT scan, and even then they ended up doing it transvaginally for a clearer picture.
