Baby's getting his groove on-9weeks, 2 days.

Well, baby is still growing & heart is still beating strong. The other one has passed on & is vanishing, she said not to be surprised if I experience some spotting this weekend, week. We got to see baby moving around & it now has visible arms & legs. The U/S tech was measuring the baby & the Dr. said, "let's go back, I want to see more dancing baby". She said she is still concerned about the size of the sac & this could be indicative of a problem with the baby, but it is too early to tell yet. She said to have the OB give her a call next week after he does the U/S to see what he says. She said I could still miscarry, but anything could happen at this point. If I make it the OB will have the prenatal testing done & we will go from there. She said she knows that it is cruel & unusual to keep us in limbo like this all the time, but there is nothing they can tell for a few more weeks. She explained the whole miscarriage process to me & said not to be startled if I do miscarry & to know that it will look like it does on the U/S. She also said to keep some of the tissue if I can, so that they can test it, if that were to happen. So, in limbo again, but it was exciting to see the little guy again & that the heart was beating so strong still. She said to say on the PIO shots until next Wednesday, then stop.
Yikes, hang on for this. Thanks for being there for me!

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Oh I am so happy to read this news! Every day that the little guy hangs on means your chances get better and better! It sounds like your dr is very straight forward - and I think that's really great. I know you're not out of the woods yet - but things are definitely looking up!

Oh Jen, great news on the little strong beating heart, I'm sorry for your loss on the other little one though. I so hope they're wrong and that everything is actually fine with your little guy.

That just great news! I am so happy that one baby's heart beat is strong. I am sorry that the second on didn't make it. Just heartbreaking.

I'll be praying for your little one to continue to grow strong and beat the odds.
