I went to the doctor yesterday and for once in a long time we got a good report. It wasn't the results I was hoping for but the doctor said "today is a good day, this is a good report."

I will catch you up now that my nerves have calmed. You may remember last time when I went to get my ultrasound at 8 weeks, the sac was measuring 5 weeks and some days and we knew the baby hadn't developed. The doctor kept saying we need to see a fetal pole, we want to see a fetal pole.... So that word stands out in my head and if you don't know what it is then you can see here. Most of you know nothing ever changed and the sac never grew past 5 weeks and never progressed.

Anyway this time I was 6 and 1/2 weeks and started to have some problems we went in and had an ultrasound and there was a sac and yolk sac (which I did have last time too) but nothing inside and I was measuring 5 weeks 4 days. So timing was off somewhat. Of course I went into panic mode, the doctor said come back next week and we will be looking for, you guessed it, a fetal pole. Having the ultrasound yesterday nothing looked any different than last week to me and the water works began. The ultrasound tech calmed me and said look honey see that fluttering, thats good, thats something. I saw what she was talking about and so I asked will you measure the sac and see if it's grown. She put in the measurements and said it's measuring 6 weeks and 4 days. EXACTLY a week bigger than last week. The doctor told us, "well today was good we saw the fetal pole. Thats what the fluttering was- the fetal pole. He clearly said we are not out of the woods but this is progression (a word I want to hear).

So now we go back in 2 weeks to see if things progress like they should. SO PLEASE KEEP PRAYING!!
