Update on me

Hello ladies!

I'm sorry I've been MIA. I just really needed a break from PO after my first u/s.

First, I just have to say that I absolutely hate u/s. I've had waaaay too many u/s and I rarely get good news. I had my first u/s at 6 weeks and we didn't see a h/b. I was crushed. I know it was still early but, with my last pregnancy, I was able to see h/b at 5w6d so I pretty much thought it was over. A week later I had another u/s. At 7 weeks we were (barely) able to see a h/b. The baby was positioned in a difficult spot to get to but we did get to hear the h/b. The heart rate was 140. I had another u/s today at 8w1d and the little bean was measuring 8w3d with a h/r of 176! I am so, so, so thankful right now but I know I'm not out of the woods yet. I've been able to see/hear h/b with all of my losses so I'm just trying to take it one day at a time. But, for now, I'm very thankful.

I've also been suffering from m/s and extreme fatigue so I haven't been online much. I'll try to be better about posting, though. My next u/s is in a week and a half....please keep everything crossed for me. Smile

Oh and obviously, there's only ONE little bean! Biggrin

So glad to hear that things are good!! Sending you sticky prayers.

I have been following your story for a while and was worried when you did not post right away. But understand the need to be away for awhile.

Jina, if crazy wild cyber stalking were a sport, I'd have a gold medal! I've been thinking about you and little baby for weeks!!! I wish I lived closer so I could give you a giant hug and jump up and down and scream 'the baby's alright!' And then maybe afterwards pig out on a pint of Ben and Jerry's if your m/s will allow. ((((((hugs)))))) I am soooooo happy that your u/s went well. I'll be sending tons of positive vibes your way. Smile

I am so happy for you Jina! I've been checking this board for updates. I understand what you mean about u/s being scary. They told me this baby probably wouldn't be viable at my 5 week u/s and her I am at 22 weeks and he/she is perfect and kicking me as I type this! I will continue to pray for you and your baby!

Glad everything turned out well. I have a feeling that is why at my OB-GYN's office, they don't even want to see you until your 8 weeks pregnant. That way, there should be a good heart beat detected. Sorry you had to go thru all that.

Jina - so glad to see your update. I completely understand the terrible m/s and really really hope that it's a good sign for you as it was for me. Mine hung around till 20 weeks or so and my doc kept telling me the worse I felt the better he did about progress Smile

I will be praying for you and your little bean Smile
