Thanks for all of your well wishes and thoughts. Sorry to worry anyone with the lateness of this post.
What a day!
My OB was backed up 1.5 hours. We also had a patient emergency earlier today that necessitated police involvement (a very rare event), and then I had back-to-back sessions until just now, so this is the first I could post.
The OB's staff was a little funny today. They were convinced I am 12 weeks pregnant because someone had input the wrong date in the computer. They didn't want me to have an ultrasound and were going to do a doppler instead. "We'll just take a listen." (I don't think so!!) They finally gave in and said I could have an abdominal ultrasound when I said absolutely no to the doppler, but they still seemed to think they were clearer on how far along I am than I am. Ummm, no, unless I've fallen through a wormhole, I am in my 9th week. I need an ultrasound. A transvaginal ultrasound, please. Which my OB concurred with immediately once she was finally on the scene.
So with the ultrasound we saw that...
Baby is alive!! Measuring 9 weeks 5 days, so one day ahead. You could see him/her waving arms and legs and twisting his/her whole torso, too. Wow! This embryo is really, really active. It was something to see.
My OB says all continues to look very, very good, and that our risk of miscarriage is down to 2%ish at this point.
Still trying to process this. All is well! Better than well! I am still shockingly pregnant!
Good news!! Continued good news!!! Whoever would have thought?
