Snowflake Sighting!

Today, December 22nd 2010, at 5weeks and 5days pregnant we got to see our little snowflake for the very first time. For the past 9 days I have been horribly nervous thinking "what if there is nothing in there?" but this morning I woke up, got ready for work and when I went outside to my car there were snowflakes falling from the sky (it wasnt even supposed to snow)!!!! I knew that everything would be ok.

Justin and I met at the RE's office and went in a little early. When they took me back they said not to be upset if there is no heartbeat yet because it is still very early and they dont expect to see one. Never hurts to hope though, right?

Dr.J came in (gosh I adore her!) and it was time for the u/s. Two seconds after inserting the probe she turned the screen towards up and there it was.........

The black circle in the middle is amniotic fluid, the thick white ring around it is my placenta forming, and the white spec in the middle is the yolk sac and snowflake! Isnt it amazing?! No heartbeat was detected today but its early, we have another ultrasound next wednesday, @6w5d, and we should see it then!

We are so in love!
