Looking good!

I just made it back home after a crazy day. I'm leaving on a business trip in the morning (and let me tell you, it's no picnic trying to find somewhere to have my injections done out of state and on a weekend--I know that there are better women than I who can give themselves progesterone shots in the behind, but I am not one of those women), so this will be quick. But the update is that the ultrasound looked good! The baby measured perfectly to the day (6.8mm at 6w4d, to be exact), and I saw the heartbeat! I asked the doctor if he could tell the heartrate. He said no but that it was fast enough.

The only negative was that my corpus luteum looked small (2cm in diameter, when he likes to see 3cm). Fortunately, I'm on TONS of progesterone. I may post a picture later, but they're so far zoomed out that it's really hard to see anything. Here's hoping that in a few weeks I'll have a more informative picture to share!

Hooray! I am so glad that the baby looked great!

Yay!!! I just LOVE seeing the heartbeat on u/s for the first time :)

Yeah, and I had to find people to give me my lupron injections. THAT was fun. :) One was in the bathroom of a high school and one was in the nurses office of an elementary school! I'm sure everyone wondered what was going on in there!
