Blog Silence and Baby update

I know it has been WEEKS since I have posted, but I have been a little "pre-occupied" trying to get my emotions in check about my pregnancy. When I found out that I was pregnant, My HCG (pregnancy Hormone) was 319. A few days later is was supposed to double but it was a few numbers shy of doubling. Then a few days later it was a few hundred from doubling. Really, I was scared and questioning if I was going to remain pregnancy. I was trying to keep a positive attitude and remain hopeful but I was just stressed and Cranky! I was waiting for today to come to give me a piece of mind.. the Ultrasound!

We saw one baby (more like a mini peanut) with a heartbeat! YEA, so thrilled. No twins, which is okay - but it leaves me wondering about the little Embryo that didn't make it. I have been SO super stressed, but now I feel much better and actually believe that I am pregnant :) I have another U/S next Tuesday.

My right Ovary is SUPER HUGE so it was kind of getting in the way, that is why they are doing a second U/S. Because of that, there is a chance that it could twist cutting off blood supply. That would cause a lot of pain and the need for surgery to either save or remove the ovary. This of coarse is the worst case scenario. I am on "restricted Activity" (No lifting exercise, sex etc...) until the next U/S when they will determine it's size.

Here is a picture of our baby - get out your magnified glass:

More good news.. I don't have to take my daily progesterone injections.. instead I switch to vaginal suppositories for the next 6 weeks (FUN!) You all have been so nice and supportive. Keep the prayers coming for a healthy pregnancy!
