There's a baby in there!

Yes!! Confirmed!! Thank god!! Now I can sleep! Ahhh!!! After a long time of trying..I finally saw a baby at the U/S! I could hardly see my baby, but when she said look at the flickering light..that's the heart beat! I saw it! I have to say, I am still in shock and really relieved. I feel just kind of like putty! But...one thing. They put two in and one stayed. I am actually happy there is only one, because thinking about it financially and health wise..it would have been very stressful. But I am wondering about the other embryo. My husband and I were talking about the soul and when it enters the body. I really don't know the answer..but I wonder. I feel like I am  mourning the other embryo for some reason.
My husband said the Egyptian belief is that the soul does not arrive in the body until a child takes it's first breath. Not really sure if this is true or not..interesting subject to research on though.
I have called all the important family members who have been asking and friends who have been there to support me and I have to say..I am kind of too tired to talk very long. I am so tired! So very tired. I am not sure if it is the pregnancy or just I feel like I have been fighting and fighting and finally I do not have to fight anymore. There is still a little fear in me..but overall..I met my baby...and we are connected. Okay..crying now. Those words just kind of woke me up from this daze and shock I have been feeling. This little bean is connected to my body, my soul. We are one right now! This is an amazing feeling! I love this baby so much...words can not describe how happy this feeling is. Even though I can hardly move..and my boobs are killing me...I am jumping for joy inside!

  5. Great news! Wishing you all the best! I also felt a sadness for the one embryo that didn't stick and joy at the same time for the one that did... I understand your feelings. Congrats!

  7. Congrats! Seeing the heartbeat is one of the most important steps.

    As for the second embryo, I have a heard time with this also. We have not had one transfer that ended with no pregnancy but we have 3 frozen babies. I know I am not suppose to refer to them as babies but I do and I know that we are either going to end up with 5 kids if they all take but I cant just leave them frozen and not give them their shot. Its crazy because its hard to decide what to believe.

  10. Hey Marilyn, thanks for your recent comment. Its good to know you were in bed with a heat pad after your transfer, well you know what I mean, that what Im feeling is probably quite normal and I shouldnt expect to feel to brilliant. Hope like hell it isnt the OHSS. I have been going crazy on the fluids. Thanks for all your support and I really hope to be joining you as a pregnant girl soon

  11. very cool!
    my 6-weeks u/s is scheduled for the 13th, and I feel just like you did - anxious to get that confirmation... it is too weird to not be checked on for the whole 2 weeks - no blood tests, no ultrasounds - nothing!

    I don't have nausea yet, but I do get very powerful dizziness moments...
