Cautiously Optimistic!

The words from Dr. Packin today are “Cautiously Optimistic!” We saw the fetal sac, a fetal pole, and a bit of something else, then we saw the heartbeat!! The heart rate was 124, which is just right for where it should be. I measure 6 weeks, 1 day, which is a bit behind dates if you consider when my period was, but the doctor says I probably ovulated later and not to worry. I tell him I’ll stop worrying at 39 weeks. He tells me I need to switch from the glucophage to insulin and I need to see a perinatologist. I make appointments for both.
