Unexpected...

One of the embryos is still plugging away.

While it is still measuring a week behind, it made the appropriate amount of growth since Monday. (6w0d to 6w4d). The heartbeat is still lower than they would like- 82 vs 100- but my doctor was more encouraged by the growth than discouraged by the heartrate.

I'll update more later- there are some interesting details about why this all is happening. But I go back next Thursday for another ultrasound to see whether this little guy continues to progress, or whether he joins his twin...

I'll take any amount of progress as great news! I'm eager to hear more of the details when you're ready. Until then, good luck in this very important 1WW, I know it's going to be a tough wait.
