6 weeks

After what seemed like an eternity we were called back to the ultrasound room.  So, we meet once again dildo cam.  Dave stood next to me and Dr. S started the scan.  We immediately saw the sac.  Dr. S zoomed in and pointed out the yolk sac surrounding our little butterfly.  She appeared as a tiny ball, but I could see the consistent fluttering of her heart beating.  He continued taking measurements of the sac, my uterus, and checked on my ovaries.  Everything looked great in his opinion.  Once finished we convened in his office to discuss further details.

He said everything looked perfect for how far along we are.  He wants us back late next week for another ultrasound.  At that point we will get pictures, he'll adjust my meds, and we'll be released to my OB.  How crazy is that?!  We went over the current med regime.  He said if PIO was becoming unbearable I could switch to 2-3x a day Prometrium.  Despite a very sore bottom, I'd rather stick with what's working.  The doses will likely be halved next week.  After printing out a sheet of dos and don'ts we headed back to work in very high spirits.
