I went in for the ultrasound today, and I have one sac – in my uterus! Thanks to everyone for your support – all day yesterday I kept receiving comments, which helped me get through the day – I was so incredibly nervous!!! I am officially at 5 weeks, 3 days today, and the sac is measuring at 5 weeks, 1 day. It’s 6.91 mm in size. But the nurse said that was normal. She said everything looks good, and I’m to go back twice a week until we see the heartbeat, and then I’ll go back once per week until I graduate to the normal OB.
I’m so excited to see the sac in the right place. She even gave me pictures – so funny, my first baby pictures – what a cute little spot!!! And I have a lot of fluid in my abdomen, so I’m supposed to take it easy and not do too much activity, and allow the fluid to reabsorb into my body. No problem – I would do anything to make sure both me and the little one is doing just fine – for a long time!!!
So it just goes to show you, the hcg levels can be totally off – they can look like they’re going to be multiples, and it turns out there’s only one. I have to say, I’m a little disappointed. I had thought about it, and was really excited for twins, and hoping for twins. And I was really excited for the idea that I wouldn’t have to go through this TTC thing again… But I’m so incredibly happy there’s one. Plus it will be much healthier to have just one. Now we just have to focus on getting that heart to beat!!!
