The waiting game

So we made it over a huge hurdle…but I am still so nervous.

I finally pulled my questions together and sent them over to the doctor today…

Questions like:

When are we in the “clear”
How far along is she really?

I know there is no sure answer but there are stats and there are next steps and it helps to know what those next milestones are.

It is crazy to me but MK is actually 4 weeks 3 days pregnant. Since the transfer was just 2 weeks ago that seems so off…but that is what it is. So we are 1/3 of the way through the first trimester. If this all comes through the maybe baby could arrive late August….

The next major milestone is a heartbeat and U/S to see where the location of the maybe baby is….that can be done around 6.5 weeks…so another 2.5 weeks to go. And like all pregnancies the first trimester is always the trickiest so another 8 weeks in total to get through that phase.

Between now and then we have 2 more blood tests to test out the HCG levels and make sure they are doubling every 48 hours as expected. Tuesday is the 2nd test and then another one a week after that..

So for now I am thankful for the success so far and hopeful for what tomorrow’s test results show.
