Huston We Have a Sac in the Right Place!

I just had to update you all my friends, I have gone for a very early u/s today at 5w1d. I have had no spotting or bleeding or more pain since the freak out post but still the fear of little Elvis not being in the right place was there.

Luckily, my parents have lots of friends in the right places and one of them is a gyno, so we called him up to see if he could see me. This was the day we arrived in Italy. Sure he had no problem at all, and just to have the chance of seing something he booked me in for today.

On suday, at 5w0d I used my last FRER to see if the line had gotten stronger and it was much much darker than the control.
Today I was on pins a needles...so between ice-creams I also bought a nice pair of shoes which I wore to the appointment.

The gyno was lovely and said it was possible we may not see much, the scanner was a bit old etc and that didn't mean it was ectopic. But as soon as he put the wand in I SAW IT!!! A nice round sac in the middle of my uterus. I will post a pic as soon as I manage from my parents' place, but it seems to be measuring prefectly (over 5 mm but it was an old machine so it may be 6 mm) with a tiny white grain that should be our little Elvis and it had nestled in the lower uterine wall where the scar had been removed!


We've never got this far...we are beyond happiness and of course things can still go differently but at least we know that we CAN have a normal pregnancy, we are so hopeful and positive now. Thanks so much for your kind thoughts they always helped
