WE SAW A HEARTBEAT!!!


What a relief! I feel like I just joined Weight Watchers and lost 100 pounds!!! We drove 2 hours to the appt and it felt like a 5 hour drive!! Once we got there, we had to wait another 45+ minutes which felt like 45 hours! Then we finally got in the room and David was pacing the floors while I'm sitting there half naked with paper sheet over me waiting for my destiny to be determined!! I felt like we were going to an execution and they were going to decide once we got there! Once the wand went in, up popped the heartbeat! Beating steady and beautifully! I couldn't believe that was going on inside me!

I looked over at David and we both had eyes FILLED with tears!! I'll never forget that moment when I looked at him!! Dr. said everything looked "PERFECT", "measuring right on schedule" and was the "best possible outcome"!!! Exact quotes! I love that word perfect!!!! We go back in 2 weeks and will hear the heartbeat!

He said the success rate after you see the heartbeat is 90% and then jumps to 95% after you hear the heartbeat!! 90-95% PEOPLE!! We don't get odds like that! When we started all this we were hearing odds like 30-40% success rates for IVF, then 45-50% when they transferred the grade A embryos!! Now they're throwing out 90-95% odds at us! That almost seems foreign!! I know we're not out of the woods, but it sure feels good where we are right now and I'm not going to fast forward to all the different hoops bc we just jumped a MAJOR one today and it was miraculous!!

We love you all and love celebrating every milestone, hoop, hurdle together with you!!!!!!!!
