Measured 6w5d with normal bits associated with said gestational age. The heartbeat was present, but the resident wouldn't measure it. She cited that she wouldn't be able to measure this early?
Why am I still at this clinic? Oh, yeah the other place never called me back when I tried to make an appointment 6 weeks ago. Damn.
So for whatever reason I am denied the number of beats, I watched myself and counted two flashes per second at least. So if Elf is around 120, we might still be in business.
Weirdly, I thought very little about Elf during the past few days. There was something close to amazing being home with E and the Mr. and generally having a Christmas. His family is chaos during this time of year, and being so far away was downright delightful. While we missed the company that his large family brings, the lack of drama was a gift on its own.
