It's in the uterus!

I was a wreck this morning. A tiny bit more spotting last night didn't help my mind at all. I was ready to see nothing at all in the uterus, to see something outside the uterus, to see nothing anywhere, and of course a tiny bit of me was hoping for the best news possible. I had not peed on any more sticks either, that's just too stressful at this stage and like you all said I'm just over analysing the intensity of each line making myself insane.
The Fav Doc called us in and immediately noted how nervous I was. But she didn't leave me hanging long, she immediately saw the sac in the right place and the developing yolk sac. Right on track for 5w3d.

What a relief! Again she said the spotting is so normal (but I never had it unless things were going wrong) between the progesterone, the clexane, the aspirin etc, it's almost a miracle not to have spotting. She'll see me again next week to see how things progress, but at least now I'm at peace! Thank you all for your support, this pregnancy will be lived differently, I just cannot waste this other chance to enjoy it rather than constantly worrying.


  1. Yippy ya yay!!!
    Not knowing plus spotting is horrible, I remember being in tears over it, unable to shake the thought it could be over any minute. But a scan to show that everything is fine up till now does miracles to ease your mind! Hold that thought, enjoy what you can (don't be hard on yourself, enjoyment in 5 minute increments counts just as well!!!)
    Happy that your next scan will be so soon.
    Sleep well tonight!


  3. yay!!!!! I knew it would all be fine! Keep your head up and trust God! Now go enjoy every minute of this pregnancy! Don't look back and regret not being excited :-)
