"Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without words, and never stops at all." - Emily Dickinson
What a journey it has been - these past few years - and finally just about 2 weeks ago a miracle. Only to then be thrown back to the days of worry, hoping, wondering, as our sonogram came back with a gestational sac but no embryo, no heartbeat. Having the doctor tell you "usually you should see these things at this point, but there is still a chance it might work out. But if it doesn't, don't ever blame yourself - these things happen." Don't get me wrong, she is very nice but I think was just being realistic based on the findings of the sonogram & my history, but to hear that after everything that has happened - well, nothing short of devastating. I couldn't believe it all seemed to be happening again - as of last Wednesday, all looked bleak. I was prepared to go in yesterday and find out once again we lost a little one - and then the little peanut popped up :) The heartbeat was 140 bpm - everything looked fine :) Simply amazing . . .
And yes, as far as we know it is only one - although the shape to the right threw me a bit - but the doctor says it is the yolk sac :) Thank you ALL for all the kind words & prayers & encouragement. I read each & every comment posted here & they truly mean so much to me!!! I will check back in tomorrow to share my June Guest DT spot & my layout/sketch for Magpie Club!! Thanks again everyone :)
