Hello everyone! We had our first ultra sound yesterday morning since doing IVF in July.
We have spent the last two nights awake with Miss A, while she battles her first bout of an ear infection. At first we thought it was a UTI but the doctor confirmed the ear infection. It is so sad to have a little one sick. Even though she can talk pretty well she cannot articulate what hurts and where. All she can do is cry.
I held her in my arms while sitting in the rocking chair. As I would nod off to sleep I would hear her little voice say “sing more.” I would again attempt to sing a few song before dozing off.
It is nights like these that I wonder if I am really ready to have more children. I am tired.
If you are new around here we just had a successful IVF cycle in July, eeeekkkkeee!
Yesterday was my first ultra sound, I am now almost 7 week along. Boy was I in for a surprise. I thought that we were finally to the stage where I could get a normal ultra sound, nope. They had to go inside, again……
I have been anxious all week wondering if there really were two in there. Wondering if I could handle it.
As we walked into the doctors office, a feeling of calmness and peace come over me….
She had me change and get on the paper lined exam tabled, a ritual I had performed so many times before.
She came in and asked me a few questions about any possible morning sickness and other small talk.
As she began the ultra sound it took her a minute to find the baby, but when she did, there it was! A little round speck right in the middle of the screen. She searched around for another baby but determined that there was only one….
My heart dropped for a moment.
Although I really didn’t have a hope for twins or any other intuition as to what it would be, the possibility of twins seemed fun. Then I thought about all the double work and double everything.
I am totally fine with one.
We got to hear the heart beat. Beating strong at 124 bpm. It is amazing how such a small speck can have such a strong beat.
Today will be a lazy day as I recover from no sleep and Miss A kicks this ear infection to the curb!

Any guesses on how I made the black lines?
