I meant to post this last weekend, before Easter, but I just did not get around to it for some reason! We went out of town lik we typically do on holiday weekends, so not much time for getting on the computer. I know that Holidays can be a challenging time for infertile couples, so I hope yours was a good one, or that you are atleast happy it is over with . If you were one of those people feeling a little down about going into another holiday without a baby, then just know that your feelings are normal, and that you are not alone. All I can say is that if you keep trying, one of these days you will have your baby in your arms and you won’t have to feel that way anymore.
Easter was pretty good for us this year. Now that our little one is two, he is starting to know how to participate in the activities (looking for eggs, etc), which makes it a bit more fun. I plan on sharing some Easter pics with you, but I am not at home right now, so I don’t have access to them at the moment. I hope everyone knows that I only share pics to show you that you can and will go on to have a baby, no matter what you have been through, never to make anyone feel bad!
We had a little scare over the weekend. Easter morning I woke up with some brown spotting. I continued to spot all through out the day, but the next day it seemed to be gone. We were nervous that I would start bleeding, but I had spotting with my son as well. The only difference this time around is that it is at 8 weeks pregnant, where with my little boy, I spotted around 5 weeks pregnant.
I went in for another ultrasound this morning, at 8w2d, and everything was still going well. Baby was measuring 8w3d and had a heart rate of 166 bpm. So, the RE did not seemed very concerned about the spotting. Glad to have a good ultrasound to let us know that everything is still ok!!! Just thought I would share incase there was anyone out there spotting at 8 weeks. I know it helps to hear others positive stories.
