Baby is measuring small
Tue, 03-27-2012 - 11:14am
My ultrasound yesterday showed that I am 5w1d and I should be 6w4d. I was actually thought the tech would tell me I am 6w7d because I ovulate early. I just didn't imagine that I would be going through again after a miscarriage in Oct. I will be 34 in May and I thought my eggs would still be young enough to produce healthy babies. It was so easy with my first pregnancy. Well, they took bloodwork after my ultrasound yesterday and I goback tomorrow for more to see how my levels have changed. Hopefully they are increasing and my little one just needs more time.

(((Hugs))) It sounds like you are keeping a positive attitude - I pray that your LO is smaller than average and that your bloodwork will come back ok.

Being pregnant when you have had miscarriages in the past is hard. It may ease your mind to remember that the odds are against 2 in a row. Also there is a good board for pregnancy after a loss -
