HUGEST EVER SIGH OF RELIEF!
We have one perfect little gestational sac!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have spent the entire week worrying myself sick with the fear that there would be nothing on the ultrasound screen today. I don’t FEEL any symptoms. (Is my body just not sensitive whatsoever to hormones??) And it all seems too good to be true. How does the body suddenly know what to do? Can this little poppy seed really grow? Is this actually happening?
Hubs and I got up bright and early for our ultrasound and there IS something in there: one perfect sac measuring 4 weeks and 6 days. At the veeeery end, the tech noted a “questionable spot”—literally a shadow that may or may not be a “second pregnancy.” We were like, “That’d be awesome but we won’t be greedy!” Then, later, a different nurse called me to describe that same spot as a “pocket of fluid” (ie: blood) and warned me that I might have spotting in the coming days. So a second embie might’ve tried to implant but didn’t make it. (Sad.) Or, it might just be a shadow. I prefer to think that we have one healthy babe growing and that the little spot they can see is just a random blip on the screen….
Whatever the case, we are so very, very grateful for our one sac and hope and pray it will continue to grow and be healthy. I know we are not even close to out of the woods and anxiety is already brewing again. But today we feel so lucky. So blessed. We go back in a week and a half to hopefully hopefully hopefully see a heart beat. Please keep up the great work little poppy seed, you are doing awesome, we love you SO VERY MUCH!
