Houston, We Have a Heartbeat

Yeah. No kidding. There really IS a little bugger in there.

As anyone waiting for the first scan, I spent pretty much hours rhuminating over the worst that could be found; an ectopic pregnancy or...well, nothing at all. These things have pretty much been eating at me since I first saw the two lines on the stick. My first two pregnancies were pretty much over before I even knew what was happening, back when I was dumb enough to think it was as easy to get and stay pregnant as your high school sex ed teacher told you it was. I'd never really seen any evidence that my body was doing anything until the inevitable happened.

At any rate, the appointment went really well and Dr. Bow Tie Guy was happy with what he saw, so both Mr. DD and I are really, really pleased. All fingers and toes crossed that the little blighter stays put.

As a side note: May I just make a suggestion to the manufacturers of "wand" scanners? There are a lot of other people in the business of making things that people cram in various orifices who are a lot better at it than you. A SQUARE end?

Holy cow, that's exciting. I am very, very happy for you.
So, there's one less "thirty something trying to get knocked up" in the world.
And thank goodness for that.

Oh, congratulations. I am so relieved to see this update!

Yeah, that wand scanner is horrible.

But isn't it much more tolerable when inserting it lets you see a real LIVING being growing inside you??? Congrats on the HB! Such good news!

Thanks for giving the TTC after M/C crowd hope!

Hooray! Well done on that embryo, you two!

I'm about to take my very first ride on the dildo-cam tomorrow morning at 7:50. I plan to bring a saddle, boots, and a hat.

Oh my gosh, how FABULOUS. So happy for you.

Molly- Saddle up cowgirl, and prepare to be prodded off into the sunset.

Congrats on the heartbeat!! That is absolutely wonderful news. I completely understand your trepidations, from one miscarrier to another! I hope this one sticks around the whole 9/10 months!!

I've actually lost count of how many times I've been "cattle-prodded" by those damned dildo-cams!! Feels like thousands of times, must be around 50-75 though!!

All the best,

'Nilla @ Vanilladreams
