We have a heartbeat?!?

Friday, December 12, 2008

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.
