baby #2 update

(i'll post the u/s pics after i get home & scan them!)

what we saw last time: 04/15

- gestational sac (measuring at 5 weeks 1 day)
- yolk sac
- implantation bleed (subchorionic hematoma)

what we saw this time: 04/22

- gestational sac
- yolk sac
- baby (measuring @ 6 weeks 1 day)
- heartbeat @ 124 bpm
- smaller implantation bleed (subchorionic hematoma)

so you know what that means? it mean yay! i can finally relax (but only a little because i'm freaking paranoid- der) the subchorionic hematoma explains the small amount of reddish/brown blood that i've been seeing for the past week. and it will most likely continue until the SCH bleeds out or re-absorbs.

my OB said things look "fantastic" and that i shouldn't worry about the SCH considering the awesome growth & very strong heartbeat (for such a young babe)

so, while we're definately not out of the woods- i feel much better! i was so freaking terrified that we weren't going to see anything this time. i had that sickly feeling (you know, when your bowels just drop) but felt immediate relief when she stuck the wand in & zoomed up. and when i saw the flickering heartbeat ::swoon::
i seriously don't know if there is anything better than seeing that. oy.

the hubs came along this time, and once he got over his shock at the size of the u/s wand ("omg- do they stick that all the way in you?!!?") i could see him smiling away.
here's to 9 more months of "i told you so!"
this is the one situation where i can't begrudge him for it.

i've got a nurse appt scheduled for 05/11 & my first "real" Ob appt on 05/19. how very surreal.
the girl that checked me out was like, "ummm, weren't you just here and pregnant like, a few months ago?"
why yes, yes i was sweetie.

thanks to all for their well wishes & prayers (you're totally allowed to keep praying- i'm cool with that ;)

p.s. aaaand- today is the last day to enter the Princess Couture Designs giveaway! i'll announce the winner in the early AM! thanks for playing :)

Wonderful news! I know how you feel. I didn't breath a complete sigh of relief until I was holding GG in my arms and then it was only for a moment because then I started freaking out about not knowing anything about being a good mother. Gotta love those hormones! Will be thinking of you! All the best!
