Success!!! The doctor says you are doing wonderfully in there baby and that your heart rate looks fantastic! And guess, what? Your gestational sac even grew and pushed back on whatever was in your way. It’s now round and perfect! What a strong little monkey you are. You make me SO happy. Daddy got to see you for the first time today too. We were both pretty nervous as the doctor began the ultrasound. But you popped up quickly and immediately we both saw your heart beating. I think it made it more real for Daddy today. I’ve been feeling your effect for weeks, but today Daddy got to see you and your little pumper. The doctor was super pleased with your growth and said that since everything looks fantastic we can resume with normal care, yay!! Well, that means I won’t get to see you again for a month but I like that there are no issues and the doctor is confident enough to tell us that she thinks everything is going to be okay. I can’t tell you how happy that makes me feel. Relieved. Like a 100 pound boulder was lifted from my chest.
This is how you looked today:
You measured at 8w5d but the doctor said it’s common to fluctuate a few days here and there so we’re not changing your due date. I’ll just tell people to expect your arrival during the first week of November.
Aaaaaaah. I love you so much baby. Thank you for hanging in there with me. Now only a few more weeks until we’re out of the first trimester and out of the danger zone!
