Aw: First ultrasound — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

Aw: First ultrasound

Hey ladies,

So since I introduced myself I haven't been real active so I apologize for that. I had some pretty bad cramping today and it was stronger than I've had so my DH called the RE. They had us come in today for an ultrasound and we were able to see everything is just fine. I was measuring a few days behind but we saw and heard the heartbeat it was at 115. We didn't get to see our doctor, we saw another of the docs in the practice. He said to keep our ultrasound appt for Tuesday with our doctor so I get to see our little bean again in a few days. I am breathing a bit easier now but know we aren't out of the woods yet. Below is the picture.
Me 29 DH 30 Unexplained IF TTC since wedding May 2012. IUI #1 11/5/13-BFN.  IUI #2 12/5/13-BFN. IUI #3-12/30/14. All three with Femara CD 3-7 and Ovidrel trigger. +HPT 1/13/14 First +ever!!!

  • Great news! And great that they brought you right in to see what was up. I too measured 2 days behind if we were calculating with the date of the IUI, but the RE was totally unconcerned and said that just meant that I probably ovulated later than we thought. FX for Tuesday!
