All is well

HK and I got to see Uno again today! The ultrasound showed Uno measuring about 4 mm long, inside a one-inch diameter gestational sac, with a yolk sac also in the gest. sac, right next to and connected to Uno. Eventually, the stuff in the yolk sac somehow ends up inside Uno. Weird. And get this -- we heard the heartbeat!!! Uno is the size of a pea, so the heart is, obviously, really small, and it's just beating away, at 120 beats per minute. Unbelievable. Hearing that made this more real to me than ever.

We got to ask all of our questions to Dr. D, and we go back in two weeks for a repeat. Right now, everything is measuring normally. I am six weeks along, and my due date is November 23rd. Other than feeling fatigued most of the time, I feel fine. Must go lay on the couch now...

Hooray for seeing Uno! And hooray for a heartbeat! Am so glad things are chugging along. Can definitely relate to that fatigue. Nausea has definitely kicked in for me.

Aren't you starting your new job tomorrow? Good luck!

Hey-- I found your blog a couple of weeks ago, and I have been following your progress. I was sort of on the edge of my seat with the story of Uno, and I am so glad he/she is doing awesome! It was inspiring how thankful you were for your little one. I had my ER yesterday, and I felt better about it after reading stories like yours!

How exciting that you got to see your little Uno!! And to hear his heartbeat is such a miraculous feeling, isn't it?

Take care of yourself and good luck on the new job.
