I had my first doctor's appointment and ultrasound yesterday. The appointment went great, nothing spectacular there. The ultrasound was good too, although on one of their old portable machines versus the good bigger ones (this was due to an argument I lost with the receptionist...but that's a whole other story). We saw the baby and the heartbeat.. YAY!!! .. but baby only measured 6 weeks 1 day when according to my last cycle I should be 7 weeks 2 days. He said that the U/S measured up with how far along I should be based on my HCG though so he is not worried. I am still nervous about that large of a difference, but am going to try and stay positive until my next U/S on the better equipment in 2 weeks. He had to make sure and remind me that while things are looking great, we are not out of the woods yet.... so were still cautiously optimistic. For today I am pregnant. For today there is a heartbeat. Oh and I will find out today my HCG and Progesterone levels again also.
A, my 6 year old, found out from her 2 year old sister, L, that I am pregnant again. L has known since day 1 that I was pregnant... she is so perceptive, and the only person she told was A. A on the other hand was told not to tell as I was not ready for everyone to know yet, and has taken it upon herself to tell the family. So my secret is no longer a secret. Oh well, it is nice to have the prayers and support I decided.... I just hope this time I do not have to tell them bad news.....
