We had our 6 week ultrasound yesterday. Last time we were pregnant, this ultrasound didn’t go well. They couldn’t find anything. They sat there with these long sad faces and made you feel like your pregnancy was not viable and to come back in two days and see if we can see anything.
I was weirdly calm all day. I guess i’m at the point where I know there’s nothing we can do and it’s all in God’s hands. By the time I pulled into the hospital parking garage, my stomach started doing flips. I was excited but so nervous.
B & I got into the room and I changed and the nurse left us. It was a weird moment. It was in the same room where we found out that I miscarried. B was standing in the same spot and we were both very quiet. I told him he needed to move because he was giving me a bad omen lol!
The doctor and the nurses came into the office. They threw me completely off guard. They were all smiles and saying Congratulations. I guess I didn’t expect that since we were so nervous and haven’t really been able to enjoy the “happy” moments of being pregnant.
It was finally time.
I put my feet in the stirups and took a deep breath…
B & I were anxiously staring up at the screen hoping to see that yolk sac. We saw the sac and I started to get nervous. The doctor kept talking and talking and not saying what we wanted to hear. I don’t think I was breathing at this point.
Next thing you know the doctor says…”yup and there’s the yolk sac. Beautiful. You can even see a little bit of the fetal pole”.
I could breathe again. HUGE sigh of relief. HUGE!
Then all of a sudden she says “normally at this point we can’t hear the heartbeat or see anything on that end but it looks like we can see little heart flutters…see??”.
I couldn’t see anything but B could and he was in AWE. Then all of a sudden I saw it. It was SO amazing. AMAZING.
Is this real? Is this really happening? Of course I started to tear up. What an amazing moment. Definitely nothing we’ve experienced before. Our last pregnancy was such a roller coaster and obviously we know how that ended.
We were told to come back in 10 – 14 days to hear the heartbeat. Everyone was thrilled for us. Hugs and more congratulations. I don’t think that I could have smiled any bigger. WHAT. A. FEELING.
I know we still have a ways to go but we are cautiously optimistic. One big milestone down…a thousand more to go lol! Fingers crossed and lots of positive prayers!!!!!!
