I left nervous and kinda sad. We really had a hard time getting that thing in there and I really wanted to see what was going on. It was a long two weeks and I was extremely nervous. I have still had morning sickness and it has made me loss weight, ( hooray) and I feel sick a lot. Because I have been sick and could sleep all day, we knew that something was still going on.
Today, went much better. We skipped the whole regular ultrasound and went right to the trans vaginal one. We had to look above, below and push and prod. Finally, we settled for pushing on my upper outer uterus and down it came. The fetus had to get around a HORRIBLE scar. It leaves this HUGE shadow and streak right where it all is so in order to get a picture, we need to move the sac around the streak.
As soon as we did that, we saw a BABY! Not just a fetal pole or a dot but a BABY! Arms and tail and big head. it measured exactly 9 weeks 4 days and our dates are 9 weeks 3 days. He said give or take a few hours.
Tyler went with us today. We have really tried to include him as much as possible. We have talked about a baby and what is going on. He was there for the ultrasound and when he heard the baby he said " wow the baby is magic!" He also proceeded to ask what " grandpa is doing?" as my doc was trying to find this baby. We laughed so hard.
Over all it was a great, emotional relief to get to this point. A heartbeat is there. Beating at 188 BPM and I am already in love!! We are being sent to the perinatologist in the next few weeks to work on the next steps. Figuring out if a Cerclage is best or shots.
Back to our OB in 4 weeks, perinatology in between. We are going to see this Lumpy a lot!!
