I began my TTC journey in January 2005. It finally worked with the 5th IUI and along came Eliana! I started trying for a second (T42) a little over a year later, and was thrilled to get pregnant on the second try this time. Jacob soon joined our family! Not sure if I am done at two, but come along for my journey in motherhood. If you stop by, please leave me a short note! I like to know when I have visitors. :)

So relieved...

First, I was frustrated. I called the OB (or rather my babysitter did since I had no voice) yesterday. My OB was actually in surgery so I spoke with his partner. He said he would not order a repeat because I was not bleeding or cramping...I just couldn't believe it...Who makes a mother wait 4 weeks to see if their baby is still alive when there is an indication that things are not going well????

So, I went to the RE this morning for my ultrasound. As far as she knew, it was my first ultrasound and I didn't tell her otherwise. Everything looked fine this time. Baby has really grown in two days! It was 4.6mm(I think) on Wed and today it was 6.37mm! And thankfully, the heart rate was closer to normal...125. She said I could come back in 1.5-2 weeks for a follow-up ultrasound. I was going to but they coudln't find any afternoon appointments (and I most certainly do NOT want to take any more time off for a little while at least), so I guess I won't go. I feel better now anyway, knowing that the heart rate is closer to normal, I can wait the 4 more weeks until I see the OB.
