8w5d - 2nd ultrasound report

Today was our 2nd u/s and I'm very happy to report that all is well. The baby is measuring exactly at 8w5d and the heartbeat measured at 176bpm which is wonderful! We've got some more u/s pics of the blob-looking thing and as soon as we can figure out a scanner, I'll post them.

I'm officially released from the care of the RE which is such a great feeling.

I also did the 1hr glucose test today and thought I'd timed it well to drink the orange junk in the car at 9:15am, do the u/s at 9:30am and have plenty of time to walk the 2 min to the lab for the blood draw at 10:15am. That would have worked out perfectly except that the RE was running 30 min late this morning. I've had great luck lately at this time of day and haven't had to wait more than 10-15 min to go in, but today not so much. I got thru the u/s (time stood still there for a few minutes) and raced up to the lab and made it with 2 min to spare. Whew! I did NOT want to have to come back another day to do that test again. I'll hear later this week what the results were. Keep your fingers crossed, ok? I really don't want to be diabetic already.

Today, I finally allowed myself to have the thought, "I'm going to have a baby!" Hehe.

Oh Nickie, I am so happy for you. You may or may not remember me, but I was on TTCAS when you were (in fact, I am STILL there). My screen name is Erin-Elizabeth.

Anyway, I have been following your story and I've been checking your blog for this news all day!

Congrats and keep the updates coming!

Erin-Elizabeth - thanks so much for posting a comment. I'm sad to see you're still stuck on the TTC side. I felt like I was there forever and still can hardly believe I'm on this side of the fence. I sure hope that the stars align for you very soon so you can graduate too.

Congrats on graduating! That's great news about the baby! It's still not sinking in for me that I'm going to have a baby, let alone 2 babies!

I hope you get good results with the glucose test!
