Good News

Sort of. Or at least I should appreciate that it is good news and stop being so consumed with the negative shit. That's difficult, to say the least.

We have a yolk sac, a fetal pole, and a heart flutter. In laymen's terms, the important shit is there and fits the timeline. The heart flutter is a little slow, but the doctor said it is still very early and it is possible it will speed up.

I go back next Monday.

I don't really know what to say. I'm kind of afraid to say anything.

Odd? Would ya speed it up with the heartbeat? Pretty please?

All the important shit is there and it fits the timeline.

YAY yolk sak and poles - the heartbeat will speed up - at least its there!- At this point I am past hoping and more excited, what if anything did he say about the spotting?

RisibleGirl said...

Honey, it's human after what you've been through to think about the negative.

It's up to US to focus on the positive, and that's exactly what I plan to do.

Yahoo for the heartbeat and the other things I don't understand (we were never told that stuff when I was pregnant- you know, in the caveman era).

I'm glad you got to see such great things, Zube!

Woohoo!!!

A slightly slow heart beat just means Odd isn't very exciteable. He/she is just kickin' it, chillin' in the womb, with no worries. :)

Very happy that things are progressing well, Zube!

Wonderful news. A blessing. I can't tell you what to do, because if it were me, I'd be laying in bed, counting the seconds til the second trimester.

Long time reader first time commenter...first of all thanks for sharing your life experiences with us, the good, the bad and the ugly. *smile* I dont recall anyone mentioning this previously, but you may want to read up on toxoplasmosis. Hope this gives you some information you can use. Good luck with the progression of your pregnancy.

Ooh, I can HARDLY stand the suspense!!!

Get your rest. Do everything the doctor tells you.

I'll check back again. Even my cat has his toes crossed for you. >^..^<

I never thought I'd be happy to hear someone use the words "yolk sack" and "fetal pole" at the same time.

I'm still praying for ya, Zube.

That's such brilliant news Zube, throwing up and yolk sacs... I really think Odd wants to stick around. We are all still sending you all the good vibes and prayers etc that we can. It must be hard for you to not get consumed by the negtive shit, but we are all very very positive!

Frustrated Mom said...

Zube-

Glad things have taken a turn for the better for you both. With as much turmoil as you have had getting pregnant, you deserve to take it easy and definately get enough rest. I find now that I am pregnant, I could sleep 12 hours a day and not be phased at all. It's crazy.

Good luck on continued good health!

I'm hoping you get a new little zubster at the end of this experience. Just hang in there and know we are all wishing you well. :)

Amy said...

Still sending you happy vibes!!!

April said...

Looks like the fantastical love voodoo worked! I'm happy for ya Zube!

Bonanza Jellybean said...

Ummm, fetal pole? Is that what Odd dances around?

If your kid grows up to be a stripper, I'm going to feel pretty lousy about this comment. :)

PaintingChef said...

You WILL feel like a shit BJ. But we'll still be laughing about it then...

Also? Yay. Good news.

rachel said...

Got the whole lot crossed for you honey. You've started, phew, just take care of yourself, you do realise that you are on a 'no housework' agenda from now on. THAT'S AN ORDER. Stay safe

Fidget said...

It's a good start!! praying for next week

Kari said...

Continued good vibes... I haven't commented recently because I've been holding my breath, but I was so happy when you vomited (nice of me, eh?) Keep it up...

Kel said...

Sending positive thoughts your way. I've been reading and crossing my fingers for you. :)

Becky said...

Like others said above, would you expect a "Zube-let" to be anything but calm and chillin'? Nope!

This is all good news. Keep puking,thinking happy thoughts!

Rich | Championable said...

Damn, Zube. This is the most heart-on-your-sleeve blogging I think I've ever read.

Best.

I don't know what a fetal pole is, but you are in my thoughts.
