Ultrasound Day

on May 23, 2013

Well, I made it to ultrasound day. Honestly, I’m having a really hard time wrapping my head around that fact. Today I am 6wk6d pregnant, and I miscarried on 5w1d with my longest pregnancy so even making it to ultrasound day feels like a miracle.

I still have light, brown spotting, but there has been no cramping and I haven’t seen any red since that scary morning last week. I’m guessing that means either this pregnancy is perfectly normal, and I’m just one of those women who spot in first trimester, or this pregnancy has been doomed from the start and is only being sustained by my progesterone supplements. Either way, we’ll find out today.

I have been going back and forth between being so excited I can’t stand it and playing out worse-case-scenarios in my head. Yesterday the excitement was much stronger, but I would say that today is 50/50.

I’m spending my morning trying to stay busy and praying that we see a baby in the correct place, measuring on time, with a strong heartbeat. Some benign explanation for the spotting would be nice, too, but I’m not greedy.

I would appreciate extra prayers, good vibes, and thoughts around 3:45 EST. Four and a half more hours.

    Prayers coming your way!!! Lets get good news so we can add you to the list of answered prayers!

    • Yes!

      That post today really touched me–I’ve struggled so much lately with comparing myself to others and being jealous of their blessings. Thanks for writing it :o)

  2. Thinking of you today, and of course I’ll pray. x

    Thinking of you!!! Good luck. Maybe the spotting is caused by an SCH. I had one of those.

    • Yeah, I’m hoping it can be explained by that or maybe a small ovarian cyst that ruptured. Or even a vanishing twin (although I doubt it bc they do not run in my family). Something simple that wont hurt the baby.
