5w5d - One is NOT the loneliest number
It is the number of babies I have in me right now. I was pretty sure that both of the blasts didn't stick but I know C was really hoping that they did. (so were my BFF and my mom) I did say when Dr. D left the room that I was a tad disappointed that they both weren't there, but that's mainly because that means one of my little ones (MEB or FEB??) didn't make it.
But I couldn't be happier with today's ultrasound. I got to see the big sac, the yolk sac and the fetal pole. And interestingly enough, if you look at the picture, it says my gestational age is 6w - so maybe it's a little ahead of what I thought. It was still too early for a heartbeat, but am going back either Monday or Wednesday next week to see it! I am really praying that it's there and strong!
And they told me I could stop taking the PIO shots and start using progesterone suppositories 2x day. I actually wanted to continue using the shots, but Dr. D said that there was no reason to and considering I'm already showing signs of major irritation, it's better to not continue and risk cellulitis. So I'm trusting that they know what they are doing ... haha. I'm not overly thrilled about using the suppositories (TMI - if you've ever used them, you know why!) But I will of course do it - and with a smile on my face, because I am pregnant!
