7w1d

one perfect embryo
measuring 7w, heartbeat a beautiful 150.

a second undeveloped sac, so my twin intuition was initially correct.

I am weak and teary with relief.
We did not sleep much last night
and this morning was really hard in every way. I cried before we even left the hotel.
And then, during the wanding, I saw this one big sac (and the one small one)...
and there was the embryo!
and she scanned here and there before settling down and showing us the flickering heart.

pure
and
total
magic.

uncharted territory.
Bring it on.

YIPPY! So very happy for you! Isn't that flickering heart the best thing ever? And having had two early implanters myself, I know it's a bit hard to see that second sac, but it is easier to know from the get-go that there's no chance for that one than to get sucked in to twin fantasies. Now you can just focus on the happy-happy. Do you go in again in a week and then released?

Sounds perfect. They sent me to hospital to be induced, but had to see what your scan showed. Must go upstairs before they decide it's not too urgent and send me home.
Congrats on one perfect little baby with a strong heartbeat!!! So so happy for you.
