News from the blob

I arrived back in Korea last night after 20.5 miserable hours on an airplane (well, 1.5 of those were actually spent in the San Francisco airport on a layover, but those were no less miserable). I had only had about 3 hours of sleep the night before that flight, and I don't think I've ever been so tired. Still, it's good to be home.

Of course being tired didn't stop me from rushing off to the RE the second her office opened this morning for a scan. When the probe went in, the first thing she said was "it's really big!" The blob is still a blob, but now it has a discernable head, rump, and tail, and is measuring on target for a 9 week embryo. I don't think I've ever seen anything more beautiful. We could see and hear the heartbeat loud and clear. You should have seen the look on my husband's face. Priceless.

Marie-B's Hubby here, lurking around your site, congrats on a great first scan ! I, of "scan addict" fame, can totally relate with your husband's awe of this first glimpse of your child, you can tell him that it only gets better !
