Ultrasound: good news....kinda

Karen: So we went in for our second scan today. The good news is that we saw SOMETHING in the uterus. The "eh" news is that we only saw the gestational sac and yolk sac, no fetal pole, no baby bean. She also dated me at 5.2wks, rather than the 5.6weeks I thought I was. Bummer.

So the saga continues. Next week I'll be seeing a Perinatologist for a THIRD scan (three scans by six weeks must be some kind of record!), and a consultation to discuss how we're not going to let me get as sick this time. I'm feeling pretty crummy already, not able to eat or drink much during the day and taking my meds already. But in the evenings, my appetite returns with a vengeance and I managed to gain one pound in the last 1.5 weeks! I'll need that extra pound! Oh, and Gabe and I received our preservative-free H1N1 vaccinations today, so there's one less worry for me....now if only we can get Miya covered!

Here's a really crummy iphone shot of my scan, but there's not much to see anyway, besides that little black hole (the sac).

Please keep your fingers crossed four our scan next week!!!
