second scan

Today was my second u/s. We still have a heartbeat. The rate is 160bpm. I measured 7weeks 3 days today. I found this a little disconcerting because I measured 6 weeks 4 days one week ago today. But Dr. D said that was nothing to worry about. My anxiety level is still very high. All of my previous miscarriages have occurred between 68 and 73 days LMP. Today is day 59. Dr. D my MFM is fabulous, so caring and gentle with me her freaked out patient. Two more weeks until I pass the hurdle. My MFM agreed to be my only doctor until we pass that point, then I will need to get an OB too. Maybe by then I will be able to get through an ultrasound without bursting into tears.

I remember how important it was to pass those tough day markers of the previous losses. You have a strong little one in there with a lovely heart beating away. I hold a ton of hope that this baby will hold on tight and be just fine.

This all sounds good. If not for the history of loss, this would probably sound very normal and exciting for you. I'm hoping for all good things for you. I know it's impossible to relax, just try to take it a day at a time.

Hang in there sweetie. I'm thinking about you as you get through the next week of so. Deep breaths.

Yeah, I find my breaths deepening and getting big in response to reading your words. Deep breaths, amen. Thinking of you, love.
