A Magnificent Flicker

Here it is!! Measuring right on target at 6 weeks, 6 days, +/- 2 days. I saw the most beautiful little heartbeat.

There is a second, much smaller sac, which is empty. I'm fine with that. Two at once as an SMC sounds VERY overwhelming.

I am cautiously over the moon! The RE gave me an estimated due date of December 15th.

Thank you all for all your support so far. I adore having you all on this journey with me!

Hi- congratulations...best feeling in the world, right? My name is Susan, I just started reading about your journey and couldn't stop...Love it..But I'm having a problem following you, it wouldn't open and let me follow...but I am!
I'm 45 as well and trying to adopt for about 18 months w/ no luck! I've been thinking about donor egg but it is soooo expensive...I'm so glad it worked for you. Susan
