Today was our first scheduled u/s and we are considered to be 7w2d at this point. And to my relief (and yes, tears) we saw a beautiful little heartbeat. The baby measured 7w0d and the heart rate was 134 - perfect for this stage! The RE said everything looked OK, but she said she would watching the yolk sac, as it measured "on the large side of normal". When the IF asked her why this would be of concern, she explained that generally an enlarged yolk sac indicates chromosomal abnormalities and could point toward miscarriage. *sigh* So, while we got to take a quick breath and a sigh of relief, we are back to holding our breaths and waiting another dreaded 2 weeks for our next u/s to see if this little one will continue to grow strong while the yolk sac shrinks!
