Went for the ultrasound last night. Nothing like having a very nervous woman with a full bladder in your waiting for 20 minutes.
The technician had the screen turned so I couldn’t see anything and was making little frown-y faces, so of course I was getting more and more nervous with each swipe of the transducer. While making small talk, she asked if I had any children, to which I replied, “Yes, I have two. How’s this one doing?” When she said, “Well, there’s a heartbeat” I swear, I must have been holding my breath. I let out the biggest sigh of relief.
After she let me empty my bladder for the wand exam and she showed me the heartbeat.
Beating a little slow at 114 but she said that it was really early & she’s seen rates as low as 107 this early. I am 6wks 4 days as of today.
I have to call Dr. K. this afternoon to hear the results and I am going to ask her about the progesterone levels. Maybe she’ll want to prescribe a supplement or maybe not. I’ll let you all know.
Thank you. Thank you, all of you, for keeping me in your thoughts. Please know that I do the same for you.
