The moment of truth approaches

Posted on February 14th, 2012. Written by .

Tomorrow is my first ultrasound. I’m excited, nervous, terrified, elated…I’m so anxious to see if everything is okay, if there is a tiny fluttering heartbeat in there. I feel pregnant, lots of symptoms–terrible gas (sorry!), sore breasts, exhausted, dizzy, some upset stomachs. And yet I’m so afraid that something is still not right, it will somehow fall apart. Or that because I implanted later (which they think I did, due to low HCG on 14DPO) that there won’t be a heartbeat and I’ll have to hold my breath some more and wait and see.

At least the wait is almost over. At least soon I’ll know for sure.

And I really think this time it might be a good outcome. I really hope so.

    • Hi Jade,
      First of all, I’m sorry you in this position…I totally understand that sometimes the time isn’t right for a pregnancy. I suggest you get a test and find out for sure. If you are pregnant, as someone who has struggled with infertility I would urge you to consider putting the baby up for adoption. However, I recognize that it’s a very personal an individual decision. Take some time to think and consider all the options. Good luck with everything!

  2. okay so how did it go?

  3. Good luck! Would love to know how it went.
