two uteri, two mamas pregnant, AGAIN, with baby number two

finally October 1, 2007

Filed under: ttc — charlotte @ 7:12 pm

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.

    OMG!! Of course it’s a baby!! And it’s adorable! It looks just like Flipper’s early ultrasounds. Maybe they are related.

    Thank God. I am so happy for you four!!!!!!!!

    That is a cute CUTE cute baby.

    I am so happy for you I can’t even stand it.

    Okay, don’t find things to worry about. S’s uterus WILL grow. I promise. And I know you totally know that it will. And measuring one day behind means utterly nothing… it’s well within the range of normal. And I know you totally know that, too.

    So, let yourself breathe if you can. I’m so glad you got some good, uncomplicated news!!!

    It’s Wes here– We’re so happy for you! Bri is nursing the Beck but she made me check in on you and I was so happy to read her the exciting news.
    FYI: I just looked at our scan from 11 weeks and Beck has much less room than your little one seems to have.

    Yes, of course you’re going to have a baby! Oh, I’m over-the-moon for both of you. Since I live in Europe, I couldn’ stay awake for the update but yours was the first site I checked this morning. You are such a REAL person and you’re so honest with your thoughts and feelings through this fertility journey. I hope you will soon enjoy this pregnancy because you deserve that!
