Although its still pretty early and considering what happened last time, I’m a bit hesitant to tell everyone the good news… but I’m really happy to announce that I’m pregnant again. I’m about 7½ weeks.
The day of the ultrasound, I had some light spotting. Nothing too bad, but it was red and fresh. The ultrasound showed that I was only at 6weeks 1 day, when I “should have” been around 6 weeks 3 or 4 days. We could see a heartbeat, but it was only at 117. So since the heart rate was lower than it should have been (they wanted it to be 120 or higher), the due date was off, the spotting and the disappointing results of the last pregnancy, the doctor wanted me to come back the next week.
I continued to spot on and off (although it wasn’t new blood) for the next week. I was prepared for the worst when we went in. But the ultrasound gave some good news. The baby measured at 7 weeks, 1 day – exactly one week of growth! The heart rate was 137 – right where it should be. The doctor seems to think that everything is on track for a healthy pregnancy!
Unfortunately, I’m still spotting on and off, but I’m not worried. This pregnancy feels better! I’m not anxious all the time like I was last time.
So here’s hoping for a healthy pregnancy with a happy, healthy child!
