We have a heartbeat?!?
We had our follow up appointment yesterday from our horrible ultra sound last week and words just can not express how shocked we are. We have an embryo and a heartbeat? How is this even possible when there was just a sac last week? We got the whole speech from the doctor last week that it was most likely not viable and these things happen. Now our doctor is singing a totally different tune. We are not out of the woods by any means, we are still measuring a week behind but the fact that it grew this much in a week and that we have a beating heart is just unbelievable. We are trying to be positive but know we have a long road ahead of us. I can't get over my doctor's reaction though, he is confident that we are going to have a healthy pregnancy going forward and that he sees this happen all the time. He didn't seem phased at all that we are still measuring a week behind. Our little peanut is a fighter. We go back again on the 22nd to see how much it grew and if all looks well, I get to go to my OB! I took the day off from work today for a d&c and now we are just trying to take in this unexpected good news and hope for the best. Please pray for our little peanut, what a roller coaster we have been on so far.
