Weirdest. Pregnancy. Ever.

Hey, guys -- sorry I didn't post more from Vermont, but my web access was very limited and things got, well, weird.

On Friday I had some bright red bleeding -- like, AF red with a big clot. It changed to dark brown yesterday. I really thought we were toast.

But today I went to the RE for an ultrasound, and guess what we saw?

A HEARTBEAT!

The RE said it was a good scan, but he seemed pretty cautious and said we'll know more when I come back for another u/s on Mon., Sept. 20. He told me before that once we see a heartbeat, the chance of m/c is 15%, but he seemed a little hesitant when I asked if that was still true.

Man oh man. This is scary and nerve-racking. I am trying to be optimistic (even bold enough to put a ticker in my sig). Thank you all for your support!
