Today was our second ultrasound and was somewhat "informal." One of my collegues offered to do it for us, since we were anxious to verfiy that the babies did indeed have beating hearts. He and his wife/nurse were in the room with Adam and I. Since we all know each other, it was nice to share a moment like this with people who really cared about us and knew what we had endured the past 2 years to get to this moment! Once he placed the probe, both sacs and babies were easily seen...with their tiny hearts just beating away! It was really amazing to see them "wiggle" (more like a vibration) and to see them so close to each other! Both are measuring perfectly and seem quite healthy! On a side note, we did see a tiny sac of Embryo/Blast #3...but clearly it didn't make it (which we suspected based on our third blood test results).
We are thrilled and so happy! The blood flow to my uterus was wonderful (which was a change from our previous studies) and each baby had a healthy developing umbilical cord with good blood flow.
Our next ultrasound is July 23. I can't wait, as that will be 8 weeks! We feel very blessed for every moment that we get with this pregnancy and can't wait to see who these two little "beans" become!
