2nd ultrasound (pg mentioned)December 7 2011 at 10:38 AM

today was ultrasound # 2 looking for heartbeat. I am 6 weeks and 3 days. There was a flittering heart and measuring 6 weeks 2 days (she used the word perfect again). It's still surreal and still protecting myself from getting too excited. I have so many sensations and discomforts and at times pains that its hard to really relax, but I am trying and each step in the positive direction brings me more into reality. Next scan 2 weeks but just continuing shots for now...I think if I continue to feel crappy I will assume all is well...

Isn't it wonderful to hear that first heartbeat? I know the surreal feeling... hope you can try to enjoy it (even with the crappy feeling)!

Great news Jams...I am so nervous for my first ultrasound which I guess technically would also be my week one. I'm confused on how that is all figured. My 5-day transfer was on 11/16, but now they are calling me 6 wks. pg. this Friday?? I am really excited for you and hope I get the same news. Yes, I too, am relishing the nausea and the soreness as it means things must be working so far.

You enter the date of the egg retrieval, it then tells you how many weeks/days you are and all the big milestone dates.

Thanks Katie..looking forward to hearing about your 1st ultrasound. SO they told me that the date of egg retrieval plus 2 weeks is how far along I am considered. SO egg retrieval was 11/6 (even tho I didnt transfer until 11/11). SO 11/6 was a Sunday so right now I am 6 weeks (sunday was 6 weeks) and 3 days (Mon, Tues, Wed)....
So for you, a 5 day transfer on the 16th would mean egg retrieval was 11/11? therefore today you should be 5 weeks and 5 days, and Friday you will be 6 weeks. The person who attached a link should a good site to make more sense of the dates. we are 5 days apart from each other!! too bad you dont get early ultrasounds like I do, they are quite reassuring.
