Well, I'm back from my OB's. As my post tittle said, I'm still in limbo but the baby's Hb was still there and is now 170 BPM (up from 120 last week)!!! So, something to be thankful for.... for sure.

On the downside, the baby and the sac DID grow, but still a little

Hi Danielle.

That is great news.

Growth is so variable at this early in the game and your doc is's difficult to get an accurate measurement regardless of how good the technology is!

I think that they need to leave your little bean alone and let him/her grow, grow, grow!

The heartbeat is awesome!

Sorry you are still in limbo, but it sounds like things are going in the right direction! It's great that the baby is growing. And the heart rate is good. Hang in there. Praying that things are going to turn out perfectly for you!

The heart rate does seem encouraging! I've got my fingers crossed for you. Maybe it's just meant to be a smallish baby. Try not to worry!!

I'm a little late in reading and responding, but am happy to hear you had a great HB and that the little bean grew! I'll continue to keep you in my thoughts. Please keep us posted. Best wishes to you.
