I haz two hearts

With the aid of modern medicine, Mr. Bunny and I made an embryo with a heart. Bun Bun (that’s our embryo’s name, and he’s male for the sake of simplicity) is measuring 6w6d, right on target. I actually forgot what his heart rate was, as I was too busy being amazed. I’ve never felt anything quite like I did when I heard that sound. I’ve read so many of your descriptions of that moment, and I’ve certainly imagined it, but it defies all expectation.

I’d like to blather on about how badly I want this experience for those of you still waiting, how desperately I want Bun Bun to grow and thrive, how pleased with himself my RE was…but I have a shit ton of grading and class prep to do before I’m off to teach. So for the moment… me = dumbfounded.

  3. Wonderful news!!! Your uterus looks amazing, by the way. So smooth! No meatballs! No Frankenstein-esque scars! Just one smooth velvet lounge… No wonder Bun Bun has cozied himself right in there!Sienna was right about predicting that we have a girl, so I am counting on her being correct that Bun Bun is truly male. We shall see, huh? πŸ™‚

  10. Bun bun is beautiful!!!!! This is the best news! What an amazing sound it must be, indeed. I am so glad that you and Mr. Bunny got to hear it. The fruits of your labor, beating loudly and strongly in your four ears. Wish the marking and class prep had an autopilot function. You could use a celebratory nap, a celebratory decaf latte with raspberry scone, and a foot massage.

  19. Ok I wrongly assumed from the title of your post that you had 2 Bun Bun's in there! Congrats on seeing the heartbeat. That is definitely one amazing hurdle to fly over.x

  31. This is wonderful wonderful news! I know I've commented on your blog, I just don't remember where I left off. But I've been following along and enjoy reading very much. Your sense of humor is right up my alley. I just got my second beta today and my 6 week ultrasound is on Oct 18th. I'm one step behind you (I hope) and nodding my head the whole way.
