2nd ultrasound

Thank you to everyone who shared your definitely helped ease my fears and anxiety.

After the drama of last week, I was insistent that this week had to be different.  So instead of driving 1-1/2 to our old RE's office for b/w, I settled for the hospital lab.  They could give us the important test (hcg/beta) within a few hours, although the progesterone would take a few days.  I could live with that.  Then, I explained our situation to my obgyn's office who agreed to do the u/s ~ thank goodness!

The u/s tech was fantastic and very patient with all of our questions.  And she shared, they had their daughter on their 3rd IVF attempt.  Love when situations like this happen.  A sign of the future, maybe? 

Well, she showed us 1 baby on the screen with a lovely HB of 135!  My hcg was 14,274 and "wonderful" according to my nurse.  The baby still measured behind according to the ER/conception dates, however, no one (RE nurse, u/s tech, and everyone else who has shared experiences of this :) is worried.  And we are officially "released" from our RE!

So grateful, so relieved, and so hopeful that this is our time!


  1. So happy for you. Praying for a smooth, uneventful rest of your pregnancy!

  2. How exciting!!! I remember being released and wondering if I could keep going to both the RE and my OB. It was the whole reassurance thing...

    Praying for a happy healthy pregnancy....

  3. Congrats! I'm so happy for you guys. Praying and keeping everything crossed for an amazing and medically uneventful 9 months.

  4. Oh my gosh!!! I am so beyond excited for you!!!! I've missed so much!!! Hugs!
