All’s Well


Dateline: Northeast Corridor, aboard Amtrak regional train.

The Bean and I are presently riding the rails southwards, which means, yes, the “where’s embryo?” scan went well. Three cheers for that! It was indeed to early for a heartbeat, but we saw a sac with a little yolk sac in it, in my uterus. “With numbers like these, where else would it be?” Asked Dr. Paternalistic. I know he is right, but I have had too many friends have ectopic pregnancies to truly believe they are as rare as the statistics say.

Yes, Dr. Paternalistic did the scan. I did ask a nurse if we could have someone else, but no dice. He was fine this time, which almost irritates me, since Sugar cannot therefore back me up about his ickiness. Well, he did awkwardly rip the ultrasound pictures out of the printer while still holding the probe in me, which was unsettlingly jiggly, but I think he was just eager to give us a picture. Here it is, by the way:

Not as good a picture as if I’d scanned it, but there really is not much to see. And this way you get verisimilitude!

So. Off we go on our adventures. I am requested to organize a progesterone blood test while in Little Rock, but that’s it. No ultrasounds, for instance, until July 15th at the OB’s. A month! And no one seems to have any problem with that! It’s like being a fertile person, except for the huge amount of luggage space devoted to crinone.

    Sorry, but not, that Sugar couldn’t back you up about Dr P. I didn’t cycle at the BF, but I did have a consult with him, and then a phone consult after a cancelled cycle elsewhere and found him fine. But I could totally see what you mean. He did make one comment to me that had me inwardly rolling my eyes.

  7. yay, oh ya, oh YAY!


  8. Yippee for being like a fertile person!

    Does the Bean know what he’s holding?!

  12. It’s a…. well, I don’t know what it is, but I’m pretty sure it WILL be Bean v.2! (Incidentally, the first ultrasound I had with Bug – at about 8 weeks – looked exactly like a lima bean.)
