A Sigh of Relief

The ultrasound went well this morning. Little Nugget is bigger and is actually starting to look like a little person, or maybe it's just that the ultrasound machine they used today is better than the one at our fertility clinic. We also heard the heartbeat! It was amazing! It's now beating at 172 beats per minute, which she said was good. She saw a place in my uterus where I had some implantation bleeding. She told me that I needed to take it easy, no exercise, no speed walking, no sex (damn it!), and no heavy lifting. All I should be doing right now is relaxing. I think I can handle that. I'm so unbelievably tired that all I want to do right now is sleep. Unfortunately I need to go to work in just a little while.

Here are the pictures from the ultrasound:

Hi :)
I have visited your site for the first time tonight from following a link in babes in blogland.
I am due January 17th with my 2nd child.
My first child, son Caleb now 3.5yrs took 5 long years of fertility treatments to concieve.
We tried again for a year for number 2 but eventually gave up and decided to pursue weight loss to minimise the effects of my PCOS on fertility.
I lost 26kg and voila! I got pregnant all on my own -oh ok hubby had a small part to play *wink*
I just wanted to say I understand your feelings re the pregnant crowd and the feelings of disbelief to be part of it.
I will be following your journey more but for now just wanted to send you and nugget my very best wishes :)

Cheers P
