I was nervous all day. I felt nauseous for the first time - don't know whether it was nerves, or if it's an indicator of things to come. I had to laugh at myself though; I was walking to lunch, feeling queasy, with a huge smile on my face.
At the u/s, he started out by checking my cervix and ovaries, but I had a hint of something good to come 'cause I'd seen a big black blob when he first got the dildocam up there. After he'd recorded that I had a 12mm cyst on my right ovary, and that the left one looked good, that the tubes were all clear (whew), we got to the fun part.
He moved the cam to be able to look at my uterus, and I immediately saw the gestational sac (which measured at 5w5d), and the yolk sac. Another whew! The crown-rump length was at 6w0d. (I think I'm at 5w6d today, so that's right on).
And we had a hearbeat! It was so clear that both M and I were able to see it without the doc even having to point it out. Totally amazing. 108 bpm.
Of course I was quite emotional at that point, and had to work really hard not to giggle (which seems to be my response to release of tension) and I also felt like I was having a tough time controlling my Kegel muscles, if you know what I mean. Fortunately I managed not to let go, but I was expending a fair amount of mental energy on it. Wouldn't that have been a riot!
Hope, hope, hope that Phred keeps on chugging along.
