Yesterday morning at 8:00 AM was the day I had been waiting for for years and years or so it seemed! We got to the doctor's office at 7:55 and were quickly called back for the Ultrasound. It was a transvaginal u/s so well, that was fun. She told me I was measuring small...at like 5 weeks 2 days. She said that the gestational sac and yolk was there as well as a sweet little flutter of a heartbeat. It was so exciting. Because the measuring is behind, I will have another u/s next Thursday at 6 weeks 2 days. My due date will then probably change to 2/25/11. Next week we should be able to get a heart rate which is what I am really looking forward to hearing.
I don't understand the 2 week difference. I have my dates because yes, you guessed it I charted everything. Whatever, as long as the baby is healthy, that is fine by me!
UPDATE: I called my doctor's office because I am an annoying patient. I wanted reassurance that all is well. The second u/s is for dating because there is a discrepancy between dates. We should be ble to get the heartrate and the nurse has assurred me that there is nothing to worry about! AMEN!!
