A Beautiful Sound

There's still a baby in there! And it's GROWING!

Last week's scan measured baby at 5w4d and 2mm long, with a heart rate of 94bpm.
Today's scan measured baby at 6w4d and 8.3mm long, with a heart rate of 133bpm.
And... we even got to hear it! The best sound in the world.
So, where do we stand? Well, I'm 6w6d today and that means baby is measuring 2 days behind my IVF estimated due date, but since we don't know exact times of implantation etc, they aren't concerned about that. We have growth, and reasonable dates, and no signs of bleeding with a healthy looking uterus, so that's a positive. The heart rate has gone up, and is over 120bpm, which is what they wanted to see for 6-7 weeks. I'm breathing!!!
Another scan next week for my IVF clinic to sign me off.. and we're just taking it one day at a time. For now, it appears I'm having a baby tadpole.
(SQUEE!)
