Seven Weeks, and Still Pregnant

I had another check-up yesterday. And once again, we have ambiguous answers. The good news is that there is a sac in the uterus, which means no ectopic pregnancy. Phew! This is the first time EVER that we’ve been able to see anything on an ultrasound. The bad news is that my quant numbers are low and I’m measuring at five weeks instead of seven. I’ve also had some spotting, cramping and bleeding. All of these factors together have my doctor and I leaning toward an eventual miscarriage.

However, the miscarriage is not imminent, and we are hopeful. Even if I do miscarry, I’ve made it further than ever before, which is awesome. And having seen something inside the uterus means implantation is possible–Amazing. My doctor also said that sometimes with a mishap-en uterus, which I have, it takes a few implantations and miscarriages to stretch out the uterus enough to carry a fetus past 20 weeks. I never knew that before! She is amazing. I wish I was staying in Washington so that she could be my full-time doctor.
