    I had my 2nd pregnancy ultrasound yesterday at 8w0d. Our precious baby was measuring 8w1d and had a heartrate of 166bpm. It was so cute! It looked so much more like a baby now. So after all our measuring and listening, the RE said “I saw another sac over here.” I had noticed it too this time and at my last u/s. I didn’t know for sure if it really was a sac and the RE had double checked and not seen it. He kept saying “How did we miss this?” There was a baby inside but it was small. Maybe 6 weeks and sadly it had no heartbeat. It was sad to see it on there. Then the RE said “How many did we put in there?” I reminded him that we had transferred 3 and he said “well here’s another sack!” Unfortunately, this one appeared to be empty. So we had 2 vanishing triplets. This of course adds a little to my pregnancy worries, but it was thrilling to see our beautiful baby looking so big and happy. We could see the bloodflow to the placenta and the cord. The cord looked huge to me! I could see the heart pumping too.
       So for the last couple days my morning sickness has been pretty non-stop but its more of an all day queasy feeling versus the inability to function for several hours a day that I had for a few days last week. I am enjoying my popsicles again when when water won’t go down. Our next appt is in about 2 weeks Lord willing to monitor the other sacs and give our baby a checkup. I ordered a doppler today off ebay for $56.35. Its the Sonoline B. All the reviews I’ve read have been good. I haven’t found anyone yet online who didn’t like it no matter what sites I looked up. So I’m very excited about that! It should be here in about a week and I’m hoping that at 9 weeks we will be able to hear the baby’s heartbeat at home. 🙂
      Thank you God, for the opportunity to hear and see my precious baby yesterday. Please continue to bless us and I pray that I will have a safe, healthy pregnancy with this beautiful little life inside me. In Jesus name, amen.


    I have been severely neglecting this blog because I don’t have a whole lot to post about right now. Last week was pretty good. I spent most of it laying on the couch being quite nauseated with morning sickness. Then Friday came and I felt much better. I also felt a lot better on Saturday. After feeling so sick all week, getting so much better so quickly made me nervous. Sunday came and I was feeling pretty sick again. Now here it is Monday and I’m back to being just a little bit blah. Oh the constant confusion! The good thing about being sick last week was that it took away from my time to worry! I worried soooo much less. But yay because 2 sleeps until my next ultrasound! Hopefully my little baby will be looking adorable and growing perfectly fine with a wonderful heart rate! Please God!!!
       My ovaries must be deflating because my tummy is definitely going down. I can almost fit back into my regular clothes for the first time since finding out I am pregnant.
       If everything looks good at my ultrasound I’m planning on buying a Doppler so I can listen at home. I probably won’t try using it though until closer to 9 or 10 weeks.
      See, I told you I have nothing interesting to report…. As far as symptoms go, as I said I have very come and go nausea. Mostly go so far. My tummy is flatter, I still have some cramping, and I can now feel the top of my uterus but probably only because it is extremely forward tilted. I worry but mostly on the days I don’t feel pregnant. I enjoyed last week because it was so easy to believe the baby is alive and well. Plus I got to eat a lot of popsicles because it was almost the only thing I could get down.
       DH has been working on the nursery getting the walls patched and ready to paint. He is immensely excited about the baby and seems to be having a lot of fun preparing. Honestly, I’m still too nervous to get as excited as he is. 😦 Screw infertility for stealing my chance of enjoying pregnancy! I am working on it though. And frequent ultrasound appointments do help tremendously. Thank you God for this baby I’m carrying. Please help it continue growing and being strong and healthy. We love it so very much. Please protect us according to Your will. In Jesus name, amen.
