  • Well, I am happy to say that our baby is doing great!
    They found him/her on my left side of my Bicornuate uterus which is not where they wanted the embryo to implant as my left side is a little smaller than my right. Oh well, what can you do, it just might get a little cramped in there for the little bean. I'm still happy we saw the heartbeat ect. 158bpm (my daughter was 153bpm I think?) The baby is measuring 7weeks 6 days. is the odd part. The u/s tech said to me..."how many embryo's did he put in?"
    I said "one" of course. She then goes over to my right side and says "there is something here" and tried to get a better look. My DH and I just starred at each other thinking "oh my God Twins!" but then she said she didn't know what it was and she could not find a heartbeat. So, she took all the measurements of whatever it was and booked me for a follow up u/s next Tuesday "to see if it grows" was what she said. We asked if it was a baby and she became quiet and just said "I don't know what it is" ...I wondered if she had an idea but couldn't tell me. Some u/s techs won't tell you anything and some will tell you everything. She was hard to read. I had never had her before. I wish I had one of the other ladies because I know them all well. Oh well.
    I'm thinking it's just a cyst or fibroid ect.
    Then my DH and I were starting to wonder if we got pg naturally after the embryo implanted? (it is possible for women with Bicornuate Uterus to get pg in the opposite horn while pg already) and maybe it just doesn't have a heart beat yet? Crazy stuff isn't it!
    That would be way too bizzare. I'm guessing it's a cyst or Fibroid.

    Anyways, we are very happy everything looks great with our one little bean. I'm not going to worry about what's going on in my right side until we find out more next week. No sense worrying when it could be nothing at all. ( at least that is what I am telling myself! lol )
    The u/s tech said our edd would be Aug 19th.
