Thank you so much to my wonderful readers who had us in your prayers and thoughts. Now that we know that it’s good news, I feel more confident telling y’all the story of what happened.
I have PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and it’s difficult for me to become pregnant. We waited years to conceive our first baby. It was a rollercoaster but in the end we were blessed with a beautiful daughter. We decided to try one more time, hoping this time it would be easier to conceive, and willing to do whatever it took. Not two months passed after we started trying and I found out I’m pregnant. What a miracle! We never thought it could happen so fast, not even in our wildest dreams!
Last week I went to the emergency room in a lot of pain. At first I was very scared, thinking it might be an ectopic pregnancy, which is a very serious condition as many of you might know. It wasn’t, but when they tried to look at the baby they said they saw no baby, just a sac, and that there should have been a baby there. The diagnosis was that I had miscarried, and now we were just waiting for my body to realize it too. The doctor offered to do a D&C (dilation and curetage – sorry if I misspelled it), but she did say I should wait until this week so they could take a look at the baby today.
My poor hubby couldn’t sleep last night, and I must say that I tossed and turned as well. We got to the doctor’s office much earlier than my appointment time, but were soon called in to see the sono tech. I told her everything that had happened in the emergency room. She took one peek and immediately… this is what we saw:
That’s a healthy little peanut right there, with a strong heartbeat and just where he or she needs to be. So now our chances to having this healthy angel have sky-rocketed to 70-90 percent. The tech was very nice and professional (unlike the tech in the emergency room), and she said that the baby was measuring a week behind. Based on what I’d told her earlier, she agreed with me that my dates were off, but not to worry. We will go again after Thanksgiving and have another look-see at the peanut and try to pinpoint a good due date. For now we know it will be some time at the end of June. All is well that ends well.
Again I thank everybody for your kind thoughts. To us the life of this baby is very precious, and to think we had lost him or her was devastating. We’ve already gone through so much heartache, first while dealing with infertility for so many years, then by having our daughter 3 months early (who’s now a healthy and rambunctious 4-year-old!).
And, so, now that I’m WAY more calm than I’ve been in a week, we shall resume our regularly scheduled program. I won’t be spamming your inboxes with baby news, so don’t worry… well… maybe in June you’ll all get one more baby post. For now I’m going to start working on “Let’s Be Friends.” 😀
Thank you again! I honestly cannot thank you enough!
By the way… Look what I found! The cover for Charlaine Harris’ Deadlocked (a.k.a. Book 12 of the Southern Vampire Mysteries) has been realeased! It seems like Sookie is using the cluviel dor! Can’t wait…
