As a follow-up to my last post, yes, that afternoon I told my nurse that I didn't want to see that doctor anymore. I'm a very easy patient, but, you know what, I want better answers and don't want to waste my precious ultrasounds with someone who isn't going to be comprehensive.
Now, onto today's ultrasound. I am delighted to be able to announce that, as soon as the doctor found the sac, there it was, the most beautiful little flutter I've ever seen!!! And then she switched to audio. I've never heard anything as glorious as that sound!! Seriously, never.
No thinking. No maybes. No I'm not sure's. Everything was conclusive and obvious!
126.5 bpm (beats per minute). Nice and strong! No mistaking that with my heartbeat!
After almost 4 years, opinions at 4 different clinics, cycling at 2 clinics, 8 IVF attempts, 3 IUI's, an ectopic pregnancy, a miscarriage, and the ultimate decision to use donor eggs, it is almost hard to believe that there is a real, live baby growing inside of me.
Almost, lol!!!! That heartbeat made me a believer!!
