We are having... ONE!

We saw the flicker of the heart, and a nice sac, which was lovely to see. Mr. S is scanning the picture for me, and I'll post it here. The baby is right on target for size.

We did see a smaller sac, the u/s Dr. was very non-communicative and just said it could've been two that implanted and one didn't grow. That would explain the higher hcg numbers. (the latter is my supposition, he said nothing) my nurse is supposed to call and maybe I'll learn more then. It is sad to think of the baby that didn't make it.

I feel both a little disappointed, and also relieved. I am happy to know we'll have an easier pregnancy, I can work next semester, less chance of bedrest, etc. But, twins would've been cool. My disappointment is evaporating quite quickly with my relief, odd, these mixed feelings.

It is such a relief to know the baby is in a good place, and is growing well.


  1. Yay! I'm glad it is looking good. That flicker of heartbeat is amazing - I loved it, just that pulse of light.

  2. Great news! ((Hugs)) Here's to the health and happiness of your new baby and to his/her parents!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Woo Hoo! I've been checking here every 15 minutes! Congrats!

  4. SO happy for you!!! Yay!!!

    We had the exact same thing at our first ultrasound, the one little baby thriving and growing, and the one smaller, empty sac. It does lead you to some mixed emotions for sure...

    but how wonderful and incredible to see that beautiful magical little heart beating away.

    Blessings for the journey ahead!

  5. Hooray! I've been checking often today too waiting for some news. Congratulations on a healthy, well-located, beating heart baby!

  7. Oh my goodness! I've been waiting for this news all day! This is wonderful!! [That being said I can understand your mixed emotions.] Congrats to you and Mr. S!
