I have nothing glib or sarcastic to say today. Today at the ultrasound, the doctor saw a gestational sac and a yolk sac, exactly where things should be for 5 weeks, 3 days. I know that people get pregnant every single day but for me, this feels like a complete miracle.
It's still very early and we are still deep in the woods but this is the first time I haven't been completely terrified in a week and a half. I am grateful and happy.
Here's a picture from the ultrasound. That black jelly bean-shaped object is a fluid filled-gestational sac right in my uterus, where it's supposed to be. There is gray fuzz in the black jelly bean that is the yolk sac.
Another ultrasound next week and, if things progress as they should, we'll be able to see a heart beat. Amazing.
