There’s only ONE! We had our first appointment today at 7w 3d gestation. Peanut’s heart rate is a strong 145 and we are so excited that there’s just one baby in there! Actually, Paul confessed that he wished there were two because “that would be fun.” I replied that I think he wants me to go insane.
This morning I woke up to brown spotting, I know brown means “old blood” which is not good, but any kind of blood is not necessarily good. I tried to control myself from freaking out and thanked God that our appointment was today so I didn’t have to wait long to see our baby. The ultrasound showed a healthy baby, and the doctor said I probably had a “sub-chorionic hemorrhage” and said most of the time they don’t lead to a miscarriage but told me of certain things to watch out for in case I need to call her. She said the ultrasound looks awesome and that is so encouraging.
Here are the pictures from today’s ultrasound:
