The Verdict...

Okay, so we went for our u/s on Tuesday and it appears that the RE "thinks" its a singleton pregnancy!!

The baby grew so much in just one's so cute! It looks like a peanut so that is its new name!! :0)

The third sac was completely empty and the second sac had an embryonic pole but appeared to have no growth so that is why the RE said he "thinks". We are very happy! I am so excited. I actually got to see the heartbeat this time and still can't believe it. I kept looking at DH saying, "Do you see it? (even though he was looking right at it) and "Can you believe it?" With this huge smile on my face. I can't wait to go to the OB and see the baby again. I go for my first appt on August 17Th.
I am doing somewhat better with the morning sickness. It appears to really be bad at night now. And, I am exhausted!!! I have been in bed sound asleep by 10 every night. It is really getting me off track with my TV shows and giving my dvr a workout!!! :0)

Thank you to everyone for your sweet words and support...I would be lost without you!!!

Morning Sickness is Horrific!!!!

I went to bed Wednesday night feeling normal and my happy pregnant self, but woke up Thursday a whole new constantly nauseous person!! I can't handle this. This is crazy. I threw up twice Thursday morning and did not go to work. I have not thrown up since then, but just feel like I can at any given moment. It actually woke me up yesterday at 5:30am and my wonderful DH brought me dry toast and ginger ale in bed. I am dying. Between the heartburn and the nausea I don't know which one is worse. This has totally thrown me for a loop. I guess I didn't realize it could come on so fast without any warning. I don't know why this happens, but it is very cruel. There is nothing joyful about this at all!! :0(

Okay, that was my vent, and now I can say that I do consider it a blessing. I know that by having it things are progressing somewhat normally. I just hope it doesn't stay around long! :0)

Side note: I am 7 weeks today!!!

Drumroll Please............................

So, it's official we are definitely pregnant! How many? We still don't know for sure! As is our "way" there is some drama. There is definitely one embryo with a heartbeat that we saw. Well, I should say DH saw, for some reason I didn't see it, but I digress. It appears that the second blastocyst that we transferred SPLIT!!!! There were two more sacs, but unfortunately none had an embryo in them. The RE wants me to come back next Tues for another u/s to see if there is any development. He did not sway us in either direction, he just said to stick to the facts. So here they are:

1. We definitely have a Singleton pregnancy
2. The second blastocyst split and we could have twins or triplets!
3. The development of twins can be slow and it is still early on as I am only 6wks 3dys as of today

HOLY COW!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are both super excited! I am thrilled to have fought the IF and won (at least so far)! We both feel blessed that it worked the first time and consider it a miracle. We know that we have control of nothing and feel that whatever is supposed to be, will be. So, for now, another week of waiting!!!

Holy Crap this wait is killing me!! I have been trying to hold off posting until the ultrasound, mainly because absolutely nothing is going on, but I just can't take it anymore. I am totally spazing out! I know, I know its only 3 days away but UGH!!!! I just want to know what is going on. I just want to make sure that all of this is not a dream. I am petrified that we will get there and they will say, "Oh so sorry, there is nothing!" My DH keeps yelling at me to be calm and to stay positive. He knows that everything is okay. I sorta do, but its hard with IF...always waiting for the other shoe to drop. I wonder if I will ever feel safe with this pregnancy. I read a blog where the woman had bought her own Doppler to hear the baby at home. Do you think that that is too much?

Anyways, I am reading along with everyone's blogs as best as I can. You are all in my prayers for whichever stage you are at. I will definitely update on Tuesday after the ultrasound. I still can't believe this is happening!!! :0)
