We had our first U/S appointment today morning. We were both so nervous, neither of us slept properly. I think hubby was a little more nervous than me, for a change. It was so nice to have him with me at the time of the U/S. He looked shocked to see the size of the "wand" and thought I was weird when I promptly undressed waist down and sat on the table like a seasoned professional.
I had to sit there half naked for atleast 20 minutes (ok maybe I exaggerate a bit) waiting for the doc and my pulse was probably around 150. The doc did the U/S and said that everything looks good. The CRL was 7.0 mm, putting me at 6 w 5 d. They don't take heart rate, but we could see the little heart pulsing, and the doc said that from what he could make out, everything looked ok.
It was such a huge relief to see that there was actually a tiny little growing thing in there. So far, we had both been so unsure that this was for real. But seeing the little one for real made such a huge difference.
On our way back to work, we called both sets of parents back in India, and our siblings. We hadn't told them anything so far, so it felt surreal to be telling this piece of news that we had waited for so long to tell.
For the first time since the positive test, I let myself get excited and happy today. I know, we still have a long long way to go, I hope things will be ok.
I am so so thankful.
