I thought I’d start a thread for people who have graduated from the 2WW thread. Congratulations to all of us for our :bfp:!
We all talk about the “2-week wait” for the results of the beta, but, at least in my case, the real wait is for the first ultrasound! I got a BFP just four days after my 5-day transfer, and the confirmed beta four days after that, so that wait was not really that bad. My first ultrasound is going to be when I am one day shy of 7 weeks pregnant, three weeks after my first beta. I guess my RE makes us wait longer than others - I have read that some people get them at around 5 weeks. I guess I would rather wait than freak out because the early ultrasound is inconclusive. Anyway, time is moving soooo slowly. I can’t believe I still have more than two weeks to wait.
Can anyone tell me what we can hope to see at the first ultrasound. Is it a yolk sac, a fetal pole, and a heartbeat? I should definitely be able to see a heartbeat at 7 weeks, right?
Is anyone feeling any symptoms? My boobs have been a bit swollen since I started the progesterone, but other than that, I feel nothing.
I really can’t wait to be declared officially “clinically pregnant.” We are still very cautious about our optimism, but they say that once you see a heartbeat, the odds of losing the pregnancy are very low. I think once we reach that milestone, we will finally start to plan for the pregnacy.
