Further Than Last Time

I had my second ultrasound today, the one that corresponded to the one where we got bad new last summer. Today the news was good. The embryo is measuring at 8 weeks and has a heartbeat that clocked in at 173, much healthier than 47. I have a due date of August 31st.

The next step is to check in with my regular OB, and probably have an appointment there in another two weeks. The next big hurdle is likely to be the amnio that I plan to insist on having so we can rule out any genetic defects. I won't be able to have one of those for another 8 weeks, which is a long time to wait given my current level of concern.
