I am still in shock I think.

But in a good, good way.

I just got back from the perinatologist.

Her reaction to looking at my ultrasound?

"Well, everything looks great.  Why exactly were you here today?"

To which I responded by bursting into tears and trying to speak but having only, "mfphgmnfphphp" come out.

She was entirely confused, "I dont understand, itsnt that good news?"

After I managed to gain something that resembled composure I sorta cried out, "Its amazing news!  I was told I might lose the baby or that I could go into labor or that I might have to be on bed rest for the next 6 months.  This is AMAZING news!"

I seriously felt like a weight was lifted right in that moment.

Turns out my doctor has just read her ultrasound wrong.  She had requested that I bring in the copies of pictures she had taken last Wed. and when I showed them to the specialist, she said, "Oh yes.  These are normal.  Looks like she just measure wrong."

Like almost 3cm wrong!  She told me I was 1.2 cm but today I measured 4 cm!

I felt like a million bucks as I got to make phone calls to my hubby and mom and dad.  My mom got choked up a bit, and told me how lucky I was to have all the prayers and support. 

I could not have agreed more.

I have been so nervous to get excited about things I had planned in the future… blogging conferences* and family vacations and of course, the birth of this precious child.

But now I am filled with excitement and hope!!

Thank you so, so much for your prayers and kind words and Scripture and thoughts.  You never know, there just might have been a divine miracle at work here!

  1. I don’t know how I missed this post, but YAY!!! I’ve been thinking of you and praying for you & baby! Oh, this is wonderful news!
    And can I please have your doctor’s phone number so I can call and YELL at her? Seriously.
    and you’ll be SPEAKING at BHF? Now I’m even *more* disappointed that I’m not going. Have a ball! 🙂

  2. I just read in short succession that you were pregnant, scared and going to a specialist, and, now, completely and utterly, wonderfully fine. This is what comes of reading my google reader only once every couple of weeks.
    I am so happy for you, and relieved that you have been spared this particular trial. I’ve been blessed with divine reassurance for my last two babies that all will be well (after two miscarriages), and it has been the sweetest thing to absolutely know that all will work out.
    Enjoy (?) being pregnant, and try not to throw up too much. 😉
