1st Ultra Sound

Russ and I went in today to see our baby. It was the most beautiful little dark spot in my uterus that I've ever seen. Unfortunately, it only measured at 4 weeks and 5 days. I'm 5 weeks and 5 days today so it's 6 days behind. If we had conceived the old-fashioned way I wouldn't be too concerned. I'd just chalk it up to my cycle being off. But, since we did IUI then there really is no room for discrepencies. We did see the gestational sack and the yolk. They both looked perfect. I go back next Thursday and we need to see a fetal pole and a heartbeat at that time. If we don't, then this is probably not a viable pregnancy. This really stinks. My doctor said that we don't need to be too concerned with it at this time, but I'm completely freaking out. Please pray for us during this difficult time.

Lisa, you have my prayers. I know everyone has told you this, but it is still so early, and there are discrepancies even with IUI that have to do with implantation, etc. I will be thinking of you and dh and checking for updates often. Take care.

Sending you positive vibes. Please do not panic. Everything else looks good! These things are not an exact science. If they were- we'd all be pregnant on our first try.

*HUG* Try not to worry. Remember, your level at 14DPIUI was only 44, which can mean that the baby implanted late, so has 1 week less of implanted growth--also, some embryos just grow slower. Your hCG levels were doing great when you had them tested! My heart and prayers go out to you!!

Good luck next week. I'm praying for you. If I may make a joke, maybe the baby is just trying to go through it's rebellious stage now, instead of as a teenager. Maybe the hard part is over...? Okay, I don't think that joke translated very well. I am praying for you guys though! Take care!
