Tuesday, September 29
I was hoping I would be told today that there were two babies in there and it would explain why I started showing SOOO early and why I am SOOOO big already! oh well... maybe it's because it was two at one point? It's kind of hard to be disappointed with all the great news that I received today! I am just so happy everything looks good!!! thanks again for all your love and support! I will continue to keep everyone updated! And my next appointment is in 4 weeks.

August 27th (Thursday) I took a positive Pregnancy test!
September 1st- (Tuesday) bleed a little in the morning after taking a brisk walk to and from mom and dad’s house pushing the stroller. (got a little nervous)
September 4- (Friday) that night when I went to the bathroom I had a lot of blood in my underwear, (I probably over did it that day watching Tiffany’s kids all day long) I didn’t have any cramping and was TOTALLY SHOCKED when I saw the blood! (it was Friday night so I couldn't call the dr. office)
September 7th- (Monday) Holiday so I can’t call the doctors office
September 8th -Tuesday, called the Dr. Office, they said they could get me in for un ultrasound with the “on call” Doctor (Dr. Benham) Because my Doctor was out of the office for the week. We had the ultra sound and he said right away that something didn’t look right, and that something was wrong. He saw an irregular shaped sack and nothing in it, no fetus, no yolk sack, nothing. He said this is probably going to be a miss carriage but he wanted to do one more test before he scheduled a D&C. He said he was 95% sure it was going to miscarry. We got my blood taken before we left the office so they could check my HCG levels. We made an appointment to go back in two days.
September 10th Thursday
9:00 AM I went in and got my blood drawn. So they would have something to compare my other levels too. The Doctor told me if they barley go up then I am miscarrying and if they go down then I am obviously miss carrying. And that for a normal pregnancy they should go way up!
4:45 PM- My results appointment. We go in thinking the worst and hoping for the best! The whole two days leading up to this moment have been a complete night mar and I can‘t remember when I have prayed for something SO hard!. I kept telling Brandon if I didn’t see the ultra sound my self I would never have thought anything was wrong. I still was throwing up every day, I was still feeling that pulling feeling where your ligaments are pulling and stretching, and all the normal symptoms of pregnancy. The Doctor looked at my results and said they went up like they should?? He said now this makes me think it may be a “moler Pregnancy”… Which I didn’t know exactly what that was, so when I asked he said he compared it to Cancer, oh well perfect I thought! I said is there any way you could have read the ultra sound wrong, that it could be different… and he said lets take another look! He said he needed to do a few more and then he would try to get us in. We waited a while and then he came back in and said everyone else is done, you are the last ones here so since you had to wait the longest you get the longest ultrasound. He started doing it and noticed my bladder was full.. So I put the little paper sheet they give you around my legs and barefooted ran down the hall to the bathroom, like he said nobody was around the reception area was closed and the lights were turned off. I ran back and he started again. Right away he said Wait a minute we might have something here… I think we have a fetus, I think we might have something. Brandon and I couldn’t believe what we were hearing “WHAT we were going to beat the 5% chance he gave us just two days before!” He said yep we have a fetus, and I think we have a heart beat! He turned on the noise and I couldn’t believe the sound we were hearing!! Music to our ears! He said my sack is still a very irregular shape but things are definitely improving! He moved the wand around and the sack almost looked like it went into two perfectly round separate sacks, he would move it back and it would go into one “irregular shaped sack” I asked could it be two and it’s just playing games with us? He said I don’t know I am not sure, we will have to wait and see. He measured the fetus and I was only measuring 6w. 3d. Not the 8plus I had originally thought. I am nursing William so my periods aren't normal anyway. SO I knew it was an option that I wasn’t as far along as I thought. I also had “something else off to the side of my sack that the doctor thought was some blood? A hemorrhage or something? Brandon asked when the Doctor was done, So what is our % now? The Doctor gave us 50/50. We said we’d take it after hearing 5%! We made another appointment in 5 days for another ultra sound.
September 11th-12th Had some more spotting
September 15th (Tuesday) Ultrasound appointment. I was hoping for some more answers but totally preparing my self for the fact that I may not here anything new? The doctor measured the Fetus it had grown a little and was now measuring 6w. 6d. And the heart beat had gone from 114 BPM last appointment to 137 BPM. So the baby had grown and the heart beat had gotten stronger. There was still that mass of blood off to the side that he still isn’t 100% sure about and there was still what appeared to be another “something” another sack or something. The Doctor thinks that it may have been a baby at some point and is now nothing, he said he doesn’t think it will become anything, I have my own feelings on the matter at what it is? I am still hoping and praying that its’ another baby that is hiding and we just wont see it for a while? I am hoping it will explain why I am showing so huge already! I left the office that day with VERY high hopes! I was SO nervous for so long, it felt good to finally exhale a little. I herd and saw the baby and it was growing. Growing in a very irregular shaped sack but there and growing none the less. The Doctor was very happy with the out come so much that he didn’t think he needed to see me again that week, so we made another ultra sound appointment in 2 weeks.
So I have another ultrasound scheduled for Tuesday September 29th. It will be my 4th ultra sound and I will be 8w. 6d.

He gives hi-5's now.
He tries to talk more, I say what does a dog say, and then bark, and then he tries to bark, same with chicken, he does the bak bak bak. it's kind of funny. he says, ball, doggie, ditto's (my parents dog's name) no no no, and "OH" all the time, everything is "ohhh" and "uh oh".
