We Have a Heartbeat!!!

I’m in shock right now. Really. I honestly can’t believe we have passed this milestone! I am 6 weeks today (measuring 6w1d on the u/s). My EDD (estimated due date) is either March 17 (according to u/s) or March 18 (according to the calendar). I’m beyond happy right now. After the last three pregnancies, which were all lost before a heartbeat was seen, I wasn’t sure I could even get to this point. But, it looks like the intralipids are working!!! The baby’s heartbeat was going about 130 bpm (roughly). The nurse said it’s too hard to count at this point, but by looking she could tell it’s about 130. O.M.G. The nurse (I love my nurse) gave me pics again today. They are awful though! The printer isn’t working very well on that paticular u/s machine. She said I could get a different machine next time! 🙂 But, here you go! My Peanut is .44cm big (last week the sac was .46cm – not sure how big the sac is this time – they don’t measure it once they can measure the baby!). the baby is at the top of the dark circle.


Seriously. I might actually have a baby?! Crazy.


  1. A heartbeat! Little Bean is even cuter this week – how does s/he manage? Oh yeah, great genes!

    Love you guys. All three of you. And Mr. Riley Dog, too.

  7. Here from LFCA…


    I’d stick with the EDD from the calendar, since you know the date of conception for sure. My ultrasound-based EDD keeps moving around.

  8. Your blog is giving me much hope- I have had 9 m/c and have just started with intralipids. Im going to read on, but I wonder what you were diagnosed with to get to IL infusions?
