Good news, and some questionable news
So we had our second ultrasound today, and got (mostly) good news. The baby is looking great and growing right on track (7w4d), and we actually got to HEAR the heartbeat today (155) which was totally amazing.
I had a hard time enjoying the experience though, because they also found “something else” in there besides the baby. The RE (not mine, another one of the team docs) thinks that it could be either part of the baby that was just overlapping on the ultrasound, or part of a twin that stopped developing. Either of those options could be dealt with, but I now have myself convinced that it’s a second head or something.
Hormonal pregnant women should not have to deal with unknown issues.
And the worst part is that they can’t get me in for another ultrasound (on the more high-powered machine in the OB office) until a week from tomorrow. Like I wasn’t worried enough before.
