Finally … Not Bad News

sixpointfiveweeks.jpgThere is a sac in my uterus.

Said sac has an embryo in it that dates to 6w6d (.91 mm), even though I am only 6w4d.

Said embryo in said sac has a heartbeat of about 130 bpm and we were actually able to hear it.

For now, this is a viable pregnancy. For now, everything is okay.

So please explain to me why I can’t stop crying?


November 19, 2007. Pregnancy #3.

    Trust me. I bawled when I saw a positive, so I can totally understand why you are crying after seeing something so gorgeous!

  2. Meg replied:

    such a great post – I am thrilled at how great your recent visit was. The tears are indicating you are human, my dear. Hooray for positive OB appointments.

    M.C.- Congrats!!! πŸ™‚ Oh, this is wonderful news!! Yay for the heartbeat! ((Hugs)) Maybe you are crying because you are so happy? Or maybe because you are crying beacause you are afraid to believe that this time maybe there will be a happy ending. I have been there, and I know the intense emotions. It’s okay to cry. Let it out. It’s also okay to have hope in your heart.I know it’s scary to let that glimmer of hope to take root in your heart, especially after the intense pain of loss. I am still having anxiety attacks at times about this pregnancy, and I am in the 3rd tri. You would think I would be carefree by now, but I still struggle.It took months before I felt attached to baby…it was easier to shield myself with an emotional wall. It’s normal to be afraid and excited and emotional after loss. Enjoy the life growing within you as much and often as you can! I am sending lots of prayers of good health for you & baby!!! (Your post brought tears to my eyes). Congrats, Momma!!!! Sticky, sticky!!!

    What a great appointment! Congrats on the good news.

    As for the tears, I find the emotional vulnerability that comes hand in hand with hope can be quite painful (and, thankfully, joyful).

    Best wishes.

    Congratulations for the good news. I am keeping all crossable appendages crossed for you!!!! Feel what you feel when you feel it. Crying is good. Laughing is good.

    For the same reason that I am shaking here at my desk typing this… so filled with overwhelming relief for you and Mr. MC.

    Momentary relief. Surges of hope. Followed by crashing waves of “now when is the shoe going to drop” anxiety?

    I hope and pray that this is the most uneventful pregnancy EVAH!

    You can’t stop crying because you are so relieved AND so happy. I am so happy for you too.

    I am so glad to hear it! Wishing you well!

  10. Wendy replied:

    A heartbeat! A 130 heartbeat! That is great news. But those of us who have lost a baby, never, ever get the option to sit back and enjoy the ride so to speak because we know what could/might happen. I am continuing to keep you and MC in my prayers that this continues to be an uneventful 7.5 more months for you both with a healthy baby at the end.

    Woo hoo! So stoked to hear your wonderful news. Man, I know how stressful it all is. And I am sorry I didn’t read your posts from the previous few days until now. I was chuckling – but not in a mean way – at your t-minus a few days pre-ultrasound freak out post. The EXACT same thing happened to me. And then came the sickness. Hope you enjoyed that big sigh of relief.

    So glad to hear your good news. If I were the crying type, I’d be crying too.

    Tears of joy.

    Congrats on the great scan!

    Congrats!!! That’s awesome news!

  15. Calliope replied:

    wow! this is a most fantastic post!

  16. leanne replied:

    Here’s why I would still be crying… relieved and happy to still be pregnant, but knowing that I’ve been here before. Hoping to make it to the next appointment, thinking that will make things feel better. And it will — each one like passing a test — “we’ve made it this far!” And hoping beyond hope that this will be the one when you get to bring home a baby. And that is my hope for you! Keep the posts coming — we’re all rooting for you!
