Hi All

today was ultrasound # 2 looking for heartbeat. I am 6 weeks and 3 days. There was a flittering heart and measuring 6 weeks 2 days (she used the word perfect again). It's still surreal and still protecting myself from getting too excited. I have so many sensations and discomforts and at times pains that its hard to really relax, but I am trying and each step in the positive direction brings me more into reality. Next scan 2 weeks but just continuing shots for now...I think if I continue to feel crappy I will assume all is well...

Isn't it wonderful to hear that first heartbeat? I know the surreal feeling... hope you can try to enjoy it (even with the crappy feeling)!

Great news Jams...I am so nervous for my first ultrasound which I guess technically would also be my week one. I'm confused on how that is all figured. My 5-day transfer was on 11/16, but now they are calling me 6 wks. pg. this Friday?? I am really excited for you and hope I get the same news. Yes, I too, am relishing the nausea and the soreness as it means things must be working so far.

Keep in touch!

You enter the date of the egg retrieval, it then tells you how many weeks/days you are and all the big milestone dates.

Thanks Katie..looking forward to hearing about your 1st ultrasound. SO they told me that the date of egg retrieval plus 2 weeks is how far along I am considered. SO egg retrieval was 11/6 (even tho I didnt transfer until 11/11). SO 11/6 was a Sunday so right now I am 6 weeks (sunday was 6 weeks) and 3 days (Mon, Tues, Wed)....

So for you, a 5 day transfer on the 16th would mean egg retrieval was 11/11? therefore today you should be 5 weeks and 5 days, and Friday you will be 6 weeks. The person who attached a link should a good site to make more sense of the dates. we are 5 days apart from each other!! too bad you dont get early ultrasounds like I do, they are quite reassuring.
