So far, so good?

I got the scan this morning. First, I am happy to report that the doctor found absolutely no signs of blood anywhere. Second, the little fuzzy thing on the screen is measuring exactly right at 6 weeks and 1 day. Sadly, there was simply not enough resolution to get a heartbeat. Doctor felt very confident that everything looked good and I have to say it looked like something was moving around in there. So I guess for now, nothing bad has happened yet. I am scheduled for another scan next Wednesday at which point a heart beat should be much easier to detect. So I am going to hunker down on the couch for now and breathe deeply. I guess I can put away the c0ca1ne and ecst@sy for another day.

By the way, all of your well wishes helped immensely. I am grateful for each and every one of you, all of the time.

That's great! I had spotting with Miss A. Said I had a friable cervix. You're doing good. We're all here to cheer you on, ok? How are you doing off meds? I miss my mood stabilizer. No baby news on this front. Everyone else is getting knocked up so hopefully in the next few months. Stop by and visit my blog, ok? If you can't get to it, shoot me an email and I'll grant you access to it. I had to go private with it when I was job hunting. here's my email: maggs_is@alittlecrazy.net
