We passed the point...

....of the last pregnancy's miscarriage! Praise the Lord, He is so VERY GOOD!!!!

Today was our 9w3d mark and our 2nd scheduled ultrasound. We had a perfect appt - baby measured 9w3d and his/her heart rate was 174. The "large side of normal" yolk sac has shrunk to "normal" and the SCH we saw has decreased some in size, tho its still there. Not a concern to the RE unless I start to have heavy bleeding - and I don't anticipate that happening. The RE officially released us to my OB, so our next appointment is scheduled for 6/28 - 11w2d :)

Wonderful news for all! Excited to follow along in your journey Jenn. You've been so patient - wishing you a smooth pregnancy from here on out.

Haha, patience hasn't been one of my strong points this time around :) I've been extremely anxious about getting past 9w1d - not that its a magic number by any means, but that's the estimated time of the miscarriage back in Dec/Jan. So now that I'm passed that milestone, I'm anxiously looking toward passing 12w. Maybe then I'll relax and enjoy this pregnancy :) But I have to admit, I'm not feeling quite as anxious after seeing that little heart beat!

I can't wait to hear about your BFP's this next go-around!!!! It's your turn for some good news Tiffany :)

Great update! It's amazing how much the baby has grown already. Love the ultrasound picture...so cute!!!

Jennifer said...

Andrea, the changes from 1 week to the next are amazing to see :) With IVF pregnancies, you get to see the baby when its just a grain of rice, something you don't see in a "regular" pregnancy because you generally don't know you're pregnant that early! You're going to love going through the process, even if it drives you nuts!

Congratulations Jennifer! I know that feeling all too well. I was happy when I got past the point of my last miscarriage too. Here's to an uneventful rest of your pregnancy! :-)
