I cannot leave you all hanging, so here is the quick and dirty:
Baby has grown (measuring almost exactly a week ahead of last Friday and to date at 7w1d – the technician isn’t allowed to give us the crown-rump length (CRL) in millimetres but that will be in the written report my doctor should have by next Tuesday or Wednesday). Baby’s heart is still beating (150 bpm, up from 122 this time last week). Baby’s yolk sac is still nice and tight and not too large (2.9 mm). Everything else looked good.
I’ve reported to Dr. Braverman who said this is all great news.
The LP vomited immediately before we had to leave, making me stressed about getting there late (we were only one minute late). Apparently his lack of fear this morning caught up to him as time and his anxiety progressed over the course of the day. I should probably feel guilty for saying this but I am glad it is not only me who has suffered for this baby. And I’m touched that he actually is as invested as all that (because sometimes I forget, being wrapped up in my own case of nerves so much of the time).
Over and out for now. Thank you all so very, very much for your kindness, love and support.
