Over the moon!


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!

  1. yaaaaay, L!!! i’m soo happy for you. enjoy this news, at least for a few days, before worrying about the heartbeat. like i said before – there’s zero reason to assume you have a problem other than *getting* pregnant, and you’ve cleared that hurdle already. hurdle #2 is over and so i’m sending you all my positive vibes for #3 in a week and a half. sending big big big hugs to you :o) xoxoxoxo.

    I don’t know you but have been following your blog for awhile….it’s funny how I can be SO thrilled for a stranger, and moved to tears of happiness for you. I know how long you’ve been hoping for this, and I hope a perfect baby is the result for you!

  4. Yaaaayyyyy!!!! I KNEW it would be good news!! I’m SO happy for you, Egg!

  5. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYY Poppyseed! Congrats on the awesome ultrasound. Honestly, 4w7d is early for symptoms, so don’t sweat it. I’m sure your boobs will be extra sore in no time at all 🙂

    So happy for you!

  6. Fantastic news! I knew everything would look great – and don’t worry, the symptoms will come! Or maybe you’re just really lucky 🙂 Yay!

    AHHH!!! That is WONDERFUL news! I know, the first few (hell the entire) weeks of pregnancy are so nerve wracking. I just kept waiting for the other shoe to drop. I just couldn’t believe things would actually go smoothly and turn out like they’re suppose to.

    But each appointment I get good news, things are great, baby is doing great, mom is doing great, you are great, this pregnancy is great! It’s like “please continue to beat that into my head so I believe it!”

    It seems forever between appointments and in that time worry and fret manage to wiggle their way in after you think you’ve calmed down. To the point where you’re banging on your doctor’s door at home demanding to hear the heartbeat because you just don’t believe it. haha.

    Fingers crossed, lots and lots of sticky dust and good vibes! Grow baby grow!

  10. great news! yaaaay! yes, this IS actually happening! congrats, momma! you’re growing a baby!

  11. WOOT! The probabilities are totally on your side!

  12. THANK GOD!!! I am so thrilled! And while of course you’re not going to be able to kick back and stop imagining the worst, this is a huge hurdle, and I hope the anxiety leaves you alone for a day or two. I truly believe this is going to be it, and while that may not mean a thing, it’s not going to stop me from believing.

  13. YAHOO! 🙂 Grow, lil poppy seed, grow!
