First, thank you to everyone who is praying and for your thoughtful comments. It still amazes me to have people I have never met praying and caring for my family and I.
The ultrasound went well. At first they couldn't find a heartbeat. The person doing the scan was very kind and said these little people like to play hide and seek at 8 weeks. Honestly, I wasn't so sure. I tend to be one of those people who prepares for the worst so I am either pleasantly surprised or ready for the hard news. This wasn't my first time down this road. Finally, they were able to record the heartbeat. I heard it three times with my own ears. Then I asked for the vaginal ultrasound to really be sure and that one showed everything plain as day. Now, why wouldn't you just do that the first time....instead of making me lay there for 15-20 minutes while they fished for a needle(baby) in a hay stack(vast dark womb).
So little peanut is the right size and the heart is beating away.....saw it with my own eyes.
One thing is of concern.....they found where the spotting was coming from. It is between the sac and the uterine wall. They say this kind of thing can correct itself in time but there are no guarantees. Please continue to pray. The spotting has backed off significantly in the last few days so that is good.
We are grateful to have this little life today and are trusting God for tomorrow.
Thanks again for praying
