Thoughts & Happenings 04/04/17 Part 2

living lighter thoughts

First, thank you all for praying today and on other days. I appreciate the support so much! And I know He heard your prayers. ❤

Okay, now for the update, which is quite fitting with how this has all gone so far.

THEY’RE NOT SURE

I may or may not be pregnant.

lol, I’m serious!

At first, the tech and I didn’t see anything in the uterus, then she went and looked at my ovaries and fallopian tubes. No ectopic, so yay!!

Then she went back to the uterus and this time found a tiny, little sac. I didn’t see an embryo and we certainly didn’t see a heartbeat, but it (the uterus) was not empty.

I went and spoke with the doctor. She thinks I either have had an incomplete miscarriage (or possibly a twin loss) or I’m pregnant but it’s too early to see much. She said they won’t do an ultrasound before eight weeks unless there is a problem (like my bleeding) because it causes unnecessary stress on the woman (and her family) due to the uncertainty of what’s being seen.

So, maybe maybe not!

From here…

Well, I am scheduled to get my hCG checked again tomorrow to compare to yesterday’s. If it’s lower or around the same, she would think that means an incomplete miscarriage. If it’s higher, then it might mean the pregnancy is viable but it could also mean that the leftover tissue in the uterus is producing hCG. If it’s higher, I get to have another ultrasound next week to see that little sac again and to see if it does anything spectacular, lol.

What a weird week!!

*Update: Test Results (how it all ended)*

      1. I know right?? Lol
        But if it’s any consolation, a week at the point Your at will considerably change things! Next week I would guess a heartbeat would at least be visible, if not able to be heard. ❤

  1. Wow! So, you’re definitely maybe pregnant? Well, it sounds like things are looking more positive. It’s amazing that even given the leaps and bounds medicine has made over the past century, that they still can’t say anything with certainty!

    1. Lol, yeah, definitely maybe. ;)
      I’m just relieved there’s nothing stuck in one of the tubes.
      I feel enormously less anxious now! I don’t love the idea that I have more testing to come but at least the scary part is over. :)

    1. I’m very thankful that it’s not ectopic! I’m really not worried about it now, maybe just because it’s taken so much of my mental/emotional energy already, but I feel good tonight! ^_^
      Thank you!

        1. Thank you! I read and liked the post last night but as I was about to comment, something came up with Elizabeth so I couldn’t… Then I went to bed, lol. I’ll head back over in a little while to say what I’d planned on saying! ^_^

  2. Wow, what a rollercoaster! You are definitely in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you can get through the week comfortably – and distracted enough until you can get a definite answer. It’s amazing to me that a heartbeat can be heard in another week (right? did I read that right?). What a miracle! Whatever happens, your love of life is so wonderful and strong.
    Btw you are so brave to put yourself out there so much and share this event with all your readers!

    1. Thank you 💕
      I believe the little beating heart can be seen around six weeks and then a week or two later can be heard. 😊
      That’s really sweet, I just love babies and becoming a mommy over and over, lol.
      I figured it will help me to share what’s going on and maybe help someone else going through something similar in the future. :)

    1. Haha, crazy, isn’t it? It seems like they’d know something by what they could see and by the test results, but nope, not yet. :P Oh well, I’m gaining more and more patience each day!

  3. We’ll all keep praying and know that you’re all in God’s hands. It’s so hard that you don’t have an answer yet! You’re such a remarkable woman and family. I hate to see you all go through this. But you have each other and I can’t think of anything better for you than to have those wonderful people right there. I love you.

    1. Thank you, Elizabeth, you’re so kind and loving! :D And yes, we are certainly in His hands – I’m confident that His will will be done, even if I don’t know what that is yet. ;)

    1. LOL, I know it!
      I’m feeling good today! I was scared there was something wrong (mainly I feared it being ectopic) so I’m feeling nothing but peace and relief now. Also, I already went to get my hCG test done this morning so no more pain! ;)

  4. Wow, I have never heard of anything like this before, definitely a new experience for you and your family. How is your husband doing? What does he hope for? And is he prepared either way too?

    Wishing you all the best for your entire family!

    1. I know!! I’m going to be a google result for stressed out women of the future who are going through this same thing, I just know it, lol!
      My husband? Aww, thank you for asking! He is absolutely pining for it to be a healthy little baby in there – we want one more child and he’s excited that it could be now. :D I, on the other hand, have some apprehensions about it being so soon, I guess because I’m still breastfeeding, I know how bad first trimester exhaustion is (and I’m already waking to feed Elizabeth), plus the fact that it’s only been nine months since I had my first c-section. Those physical things make me nervous to be pregnant. The reality of having a baby makes me happy, though. :)
      Thank you so much!!
