2nd Ultrasound Monday at 11:00 - praying there's a heartbeat

Jun 11, 2010 - 13 comments

After seeing no heartbeat at 6wks1d and having light spotting, the passing of teeny bits of tissue and cramping on and off for 9 days I will finally find out what's going on Monday morning - which will be 7wks4days.  (Thankfully - the spotting & cramping ended Wednesday- 2 days ago)

I am praying that we get good news, yet steeling myself for the worst.  I'm trying very hard not to think about what may or may not be going on inside me, but it's very tough!  I just remind myself that really - I am no further ahead or further behind than anyone going for her first ultrasound - as i only went in at 6wks due to the spotting. Everyone on Medhelp has told me that 6wks is more often than not too early to see a heartbeat, so I will cross my fingers that all is well.....I'm just so worried!

DH is such an optimist - he is sure that everything is just fine with his boy.  I hope and pray that is the case. The thought of having to tell him otherwise breaks my heart... but i wont cross that bridge till I get there.

I know I did not see a HB at 6 weeks. With my 3 pregnancies my RE did not even see me until 5 weeks. And I think that was a sack with a nub. 6 weeks was a bigger nub. And by 7 usually a HB. But even if there is no HB by 7, if there are other good markers they are not worried until 8. Hang in there girl.

Thank you so much for your support and prayers, ladies.  You have no idea how much I appreciate all of you pulling for our little sprout.  I will definitely keep you all posted.

LOL - DH refers to this as "his boy" but I know he will be happy with whatever blessing we are given, as I will be too.  

Thanks again,
