This morning was our first ultrasound appointment with Dr. G. Being only 5 weeks along, I knew that we wouldn't be able to see much on the monitor, but we were simply hoping for good progress at this stage.
The doctor said everything is looking good! All we could see was the sac (and there was only one), but he said it was measuring right and everything looks normal. One step at a time, one day at a time, a little bit of good news at a time is really all we're asking for. We were so relieved to get a good report today.
Now is the hard part. We must wait another week and a half for another ultrasound. My next appointment won't be until February 4. It feels like an eternity to be in the dark about what is going on in there. Hopefully by then, though, we will see a tiny baby with a healthy heartbeat. Please, oh please.
All things considered, it has been a beautiful day so far! I couldn't have asked for a better birthday gift. Thanks for all of your prayers and well wishes! If all goes as hoped and planned, we are looking at a due date of September 25, 2010.
Please, Lord, let it come true. Let this be the one that sticks. Let this be the one we celebrate and hold in our arms.
