6w5dp and 1 heartbeat at scan!

Published January 8, 2014 by ivfdream

Well, I had the scan, a transvaginal one. Straight away, the nurse said congratulations to us and that we had one single pregnancy in there but unfortunately the other one implanted but didn’t develop.
We had prepared ourselves for 0 or 2 not one really but my first reaction was positive and a big phew of a relief breath came out of me!
My DH felt the same. It’s bittersweet but as the morning went on, we are adapting to the idea that we will have one baby, everything going well. And it is better to have one healthy one than two competing for life.
I’m back in for a 10 week scan in three weeks. Can I wait that long? Will I drive you and myself mad in that time? Yes, is the answer!
I felt so so so sick last night in bed that I nearly couldn’t sleep. The wave went and I got some sleep but it’s back today and my breasts are still doing their thing. I seem to have pains or cramps up and down my leg, especially at the top part of my hip.
The nurse said the spotting must be old stuff or the meds I’m on and she will speak with the doctor today on if I’m to change meds. I’d love to have a bit of relief from them, especially the injection which is wrecking my belly!
I’ll update later. I am wrecked, emotionally and mentally and feel quite numb as opposed to excitement. It’ll be a while before I think it’s real!
I have photos too, will post later,

  • Absolutely fantastic news!! Try and cram the next three weeks with as many activities as possible to try and take your mind off it.

    So excited for you πŸ™‚

  • I still feel numb and detached from my pregnancy. I just can’t believe it is real yet, too good to be true especially with my past bad luck. One day at a time! πŸ™‚ I’m glad the baby looked good!
