Next hurdle complete...

Today's u/s measured 6w1d (based on my retrieval I should be 6w4d but the PA didn't seem concerned about the discrepancy) and had a heartbeat of 107. There was no hematoma this time, so there is no specific explanation for the bleeding... but everything is looking so far so good.

We are relieved and pleased, but we have been here twice before. The next u/s is scheduled for 1/25. If we count from my retrieval, that will make me 8w1d. We lost both of the other pregnancies at about 8w (though the second started going downhill before that), so I think III and I kind of feel like that's a big one.

Even if that goes well, we have a long way to go. But we continue to try to take it one step at a time.

I understand your mixed relief and apprehension but this is very good news! I woke up this morning thinking about you. I am so glad that so far the news is good. Holding good thoughts for you for the 25th!! Seems like an eternity away, I'm sure. I am rooting for you--all three of you!!

One step at a time, indeed. I do hope you fill focus on the positive until the next scan, and the next!

as you said, that's one hurdle down...and what a relief to find that even though there was a bit of bleeding, that everything was okay.

i'm in the same boat as you -- just had my 6w4d u/s and everything was okay, but last time i lost my bubs in the 8th week (but didn't bleed or know until the 9th week)...so i understand exactly how you're feeling. *hugs*

Heartbeat is fantastic :) And it's the first hurdle. I am holding my breath right along with you guys. 8 weeks will be the teller for you, but so far so good :) Hang in there! We are all pulling for you, sweetie.

Congrats are in order! Every journey begins with a single step. That being said, I totally relate to how you feel. I, too, have had multiple miscarriages. I have a doctor's appt. on 1/27 (will be 10 weeks) and feel like if I can get to that point and they still have heartbeats, then we are in unchartered territory and my past can stop haunting me!! wishing you tons of luck as well!! One of these times, it's gotta work for us, right???
