Ultrasound update...
Tue, 02-01-2011 - 5:54pm

Ultrasound revealed the baby has grown a good amount from last week...HR about 120, but still off on growth. Couldn't really measure cause baby is kinda "smooshed" against the sac. The hopeful part of me wants to believe maybe this little one will be ok...but the pessimistic side says this is what happened the last time...and it's haunting me. With my last loss, she had growth and a jump of 50 points in her heart rate...but the next week, she was gone. So, you can see why I'm just really not that hopeful. I have a follow-up ultrasound in 8 days, on Wednesday. So, again...I'm in limbo. Just pray for peace for me...please.

Dani I'm sorry this didn't bring you comfort. There was forward progress so that's a good thing. I pray this little one just keeps growing. Maybe you'll get some more m/s so feel more confident. Remember you can always come here when your having doubts. Sending you lots of sticky baby dust.

Little side note I just noticed we are both married to a Scott.

Hi Dani. I saw your post on TTCAM and wanted more details, so I came here. I understand why you're feeling pessimistic about this pregnancy, as it feels like de-ja-vu to you. All I can say is to try to just take it day by day and be as happy about the baby as possible. Easier said than done, I know.

I'm keeping you in my prayers, and will be looking for updates next Wednesday.

I've been following your case- so glad you are getting news that your LO is growing. I will continue to pray for you that he/she continues to grow and your worries can subside. Hope you can have some peace of mind soon!
