1st Ultrasound - 5w5d

Yay! We've officially got a bebe! Up until now, it's been pretty unreal. It was so amazing to see a little black spot that is our baby. 
We were able to confirm our EDD of 9/1/2010. So far, I still haven't had any symptoms or spotting. (Knock on wood)
The gestational sac was measuring 0.93 cm which is exactly where it should be for 5w5d. In the top picture you can see the yolk sac really well! This is where the baby is getting nutrients and it's circulatory system until the placenta takes over and the baby has it's own circulation.
We go back next week for another ultrasound to check for a fetal pole and heartbeat. If we see those, the rate of m/c goes down to <5%! Dr. Roach thought she saw a little flicker, but it was hard to really tell this early. I can't wait to see the appleseed (sweetpea tomorrow) next week!
