Two more days...

I have my first u/s on Weds morning, 8:30 AM. I'm both excited, but also wishing it was a little later on. Just today, I'm 5 weeks - so I'm not sure that we'll see a heartbeat by Weds. But there is a chance we will... so I'll be in this weird limbo if they don't see one. Not knowing if it is a bad thing, or if it's too early. I guess I just won't think about it until then.

This weekend was decent - as decent as things can be when you are all sick! I had a fever Weds and Thursday... and was left with a cough that is really deep in my chest. And the drugs I'm actually allowed to take aren't very helpful. My brother visited from Florida - and in my head I had fun plans for us to at least go out to some fun places for dinner. My big excitement was walking from upstairs to downstairs without coughing up a lung. But - he and Aaron did paint a lot on the living room - my mother even helped. So, we are really close to being able to move back in! The room looks great! And it was great to just get to spend time with my brother - we rarely get time alone. So this was a nice change.

I'm leaving on my vacation on Sunday morning early - so I'm going to keep on relaxing and laying low this week - I need to get rid of this sickness so I can have fun....

Good luck! I had a 5w2d u/s that only showed the gest and yolk sacs...no h/b yet. So don't be worried if you don't see it yet. Also, I went back at 6w2d for another scan and saw the h/b then!

Good luck!!!

Cece, I've been thinking the exact same thing. We have our first u/s next week and the nurse warned we may not see a heartbeat. If that's the case, the following week of waiting for a follow-up will be torturous. I hope you have a wonderful u/s though, that puts your mind to rest!

I'll be haunting your blog. You may or may not see a HB, as you point out. Was it their choice to scan you before 6 weeks?

I'm surprised they are doing an u/s before 6 weeks, because you are right about the whole limbo thing. Definitely do not worry if you don't see a heartbeat. It is just too bad that it isn't as easy as just turning off a worry button.

Is it because of your ectopic last year that they're doing the u/s so early? I had one at 5 weeks, only because they expected an ectopic, but I was told they don't usually do them until the middle of the 6th. I suspect we might go to the same clinic (based on stuff you've said in the past).
