5w4d - first scan


Yesterday we had our first ultrasound scan. Meet my little over-achiever! At 5w4d we saw a gestational sac (8,7 mm although the printed report later said 18 mm?!?), a yolk sack, and then a fetal pole of somewhere between 1.7 and 1.9 mm with a tiny flicker of a heart beat! Still too early to measure the heart rate, but it was there and oh, it felt soooo good to see it on the screen!

We went for a some coffee/tea with cake afterwards to celebrate.

My next appointments are as a 'regular pregnant woman': checkup with the OB on June 20th, next ultrasound on July 13.

The rest of the day was very stressful because of work and at the end of the day I felt like a complete professional failure (but that's something for a separate post, or not). And then when hubby came home he got mad because I had told his sister (whom he doesn't want to speak to anymore because of something that happened last summer) about the pregnancy. Ugh.

Congrats on your Super Beanie! Hope he thrives well!

I hope you will be able to disconnect a bit from office politics because it is a total mental drain. Take Care!

And oops at the upset hubby...I hope he understands your point of view.

Take Care!

Hope that writing of the heartbeat cheered you up despite all the stress. And maybe your hubby had some stress about this little embryo and you mentioning the sister triggered the mad outburst?
O well, I made some lovely spice tea, hope that relaxes you as well as me and makes it possible to let go of the unwanted emotions!
Good luck and sweet dreams for later
