Today I had an unscheduled ultrasound due to an "it's all in my head" type situation. Three days ago all of my pregnancy symptoms seemed to subside and I felt perfectly normal again. This caused me to of course freak out and have a constant "something is wrong" state of mind. I called my Dr. and she got me in for an ultrasound right away for my own peace of mind, which I'm forever grateful for. I was able to see our perfect little miracle, now the size of a blueberry, thriving away with a perfect little heartbeat of 164 BPM. Today we're 7 weeks and 5 days (still a long way to go), but I'm SO happy that I have peace of mind that everything is perfectly fine.
I thought I'd share a little peek of our miracle from today. The circle on the right is the yolk sac that feeds the baby, and to the left of the photo is our little miracle. None of the printouts do any justice to the movement and visual appeal to what the ultrasound shows. Enjoy!
Me In A Nutshell
My name is Kristina and I'm 37. Originally I'm a Southern CA girl, and I'm now living in the "burbs" of Chicago. I love my son, my husband, my family, my fur babies, and my wonderful friends. I love wine, love to relax, love to have a good time, I'm a little adventurous, love to people watch, and I'm always down for a last minute road trip to virtually anywhere. I'm obsessed with the smell of racing fuel...weird I know - and fresh cut grass! I love to be home, but hate to sit at the house. If I'm excited I get pretty random - sometimes I talk about multiple subjects at once - I'll admit it's probably hard to keep up. My husband and I battled infertility for 5 years before having a successful pregnancy - our son Colton Charles was born September 30th, 2016, Although we have had success with the birth of Colton, our battle still continues with infertility. I've learned it's a wonderful & beautiful thing to share with others the journey that we've walked in the world of infertility. Welcome to our story.
