"The Blip" due on December 21st.

It looks like the third time might have been the charm. Lia and I went to get a 6 week ultrasound at the IVF clinic this Monday and we have a 120 beat per minute heartbeat! And it's not twins. Which would have been cool, but frankly, I want to buy a new mountain bike someday so one is better.

Here is the ultrasound at the implant a few weeks ago. All you could see was the little ball of light travel down the tube and stick in place.

In the ultrasound from this week, the only thing on the screen that was moving was a little blinking spot on the screen. As soon as our doctor saw that he said, "good job, you graduated." Meaning he's kicking us out the door because his job is done: a healthy single pregnancy with a good heartbeat. Now we go to the OB.
