Just a little update

I ended up going in to see my OBGYN yesterday since I had that little clot/blood scare the previous day. We thought possibly the pregnancy was lost given my history.

My doc decided to do an ultrasound.
Shocked is an understatement. I was expecting bad news and instead....
There was a gestational sac, with a yolk sac inside, and what we believe is the fetal pole beginning! We think we saw some very faint flickers, but that was harder to see! And I'm measuring 5 weeks 6 days to 6 weeks 0 days! Just 48 hours before I was measuring behind at 5 weeks 3 days and the sac was totally empty!
I now believe I O'd 2 days later than I thought I did. My temp did stay low for 3 days and shot up on September 5th. So I'm guessing instead of September 2nd, I O'd September 4th.
The 1 bleeding scare I had few days back is believed to be left over from the fluid that was next to the sac last week. Now that fluid is gone and we couldn't find anything else on the ultrasound exam that indicated blood/fluid.
Oh and my HCG as of 10/2 was 8818!
My HCG with my losses never made it past 300 to 400.
My HCG with DS #2 was also 8,210 at 5 weeks 6 days. So I'm not worried and neither is my doctor. And we didnt see a heartbeat at my 5 week 6 day ultrasound with him...just a gestational sac and yolk sac. So I'm staying hopeful!

But what a turn of events! God is good and I'll keep praying all will turn out healthy and well for this little one growing inside me!
Best wishes to all and always a happy and healthy 9 months!
