Thank you God. We are pregnant!!
The last time I went in for an ultrasound I didn’t know what to expect…When I went in I was told that there was a yolk sac but no fetal pole. It was a quick appointment and I was told to come back in two weeks. Sadly, nothing ever developed and I had a blighted ovum miscarriage.
I did not want to get my hopes up this time around. I called my doctor to tell her that my tom never came; I had missed my period and that took an at home pregnancy test and for a faint plus. She quickly sent me forms to get my blood work done to ensure that I was in fact pregnant. the first set of numbers looked promising and after a follow up test three days later. it was confirmed that my hcg levels were increasing and that the embryo had implanted in just the right spot.
I booked an appointment with the nurse and kept praying that our time to become parents had come. I was so nervous and didn’t know what to expect. There was a nurse and an ultrasound technician in the room and she began the transvaginal ultrasound. It wasn’t the most comfortable but I wasn’t thinking of that at all. I was just laying there holding my breath, anticipating the words that were going to come out of the technician’s mouth.
After a couple of minutes, she looked at me and smiled. She turned the monitor towards me and said everything looked normal and that I was 6 weeks and 2 days along. She told me that there was one baby with a nice, strong heartbeat (157 BPM). I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I began to cry as I became overwhelmed with happiness. Thank you God, I kept repeating as I left the room clutching the picture of my baby close to my chest. Although it looked like a blurry blob I was so overjoyed.
As I wiped away the tears and left the office, I excitedly called my husband and told him the good news…there was a baby in my uterus and growing healthy and that he/she had a strong heartbeat. I didn’t know now to react. He was so happy as well but didn’t want to get his hopes up.
We were so happy to keeping our secret for a few more weeks before we would tell our family.
Stay tuned for my next update and remember that everything happens in God’s perfect timing!
Stay strong and beautiful!
