Meet and Greet

I was able to get an earlier follow-up appointment with the fertility clinic and I was able to meet my little nugget today, who measures at 17mm. . It was incredible to see the form of a teeny tiny baby with a fluttering heart. Then I heard the heartbeat, so steady and quick. Boom boom boom! Simply amazing! The second embryo that we transferred did not make it. It stopped growing at about 12mm. No explanation given, however we are happy, as we will have our hands full with at least one.

I'm about 8 weeks pregnant and I haven't felt any strong pregnancy symptoms yet, except for some sore breasts, tiredness and clothes feeling a bit tighter. I'll be going off progesterone in 3 days.

I have my first OB appointment on Monday. Can't believe this is all happening. A really exciting and unique time in our lives. At the moment, all I can do is look at the photo of our little nugget and gaze at it in awe.
