We needed some good, uncomplicated news. We got it.
Although Dr. PSS, true to her name, did not give me enough details, I’m wondering if that is for the better. After a very short scan, she said, “everything looks great”, she measured it and she printed us a picture. I had to ask her about the hematoma (previously referred to as the VT/SH – vanishing twin slash subchorionic hematoma). She looked slightly baffled, so I said remember there was what you believed to be a hematoma last time? She replied I did not see anything this time. Okaaaaaay. I would have loved more information, but I’m glad that it was such a non issue as to not even be in her mind. I think. I hope. And there was nothing unusual about the scan this time. I can hardly believe it.
Of course S and I were creating things to worry about on the way home, like the fact that the baby seems to not have any room. We wondered whether he or she would need ear surgery from being plastered in a too small space, and decided that if that was the worst of the issues – we could live with that. It measured 9w3d (2.71cm), which is one day behind…but I assume at this point that 1 day doesn’t mean much.
As the night wears on I am feeling more excited. When I look at this picture, I feel a little teary. You can clearly see that this is a baby. A real one. The head is on the right. For those of you who know about ultrasounds does this look okay to you?
I am beginning to believe that we might actually have a baby.
