One is the loveliest number
In case you missed it the first 8,952 times I've obsessed about it here, with a unicornuate uterus, multiples are, shall we say, less than desirable. So I am very relieved.
The ultrasound itself was a bit anticlimactic. Dr. SF stuck the wand in, took a look at my GIGANTIC ovaries (he said it will probably take about three more weeks for the bloating to go away--aaugh!), then looked around the whole uterus several times to make sure he wasn't missing a second sac. The sac itself was just a dark smudge on the screen--I wouldn't have even been able to tell anything was there if Dr. SF hadn't pointed it out. He didn't measure it or anything, but I assume the size looked fine to him.
Apparently I will go back once a week until I'm at eight weeks. Since I'm now 5 weeks, that means I get THREE more ultrasounds before I'm released to an OB! (Sorry, Robbie.) Next week we will hopefully see a yolk sac, Dr. SF said, and the week after that the heartbeat.
Dr. SF said I should start thinking about where I want to deliver, so he can refer me to an OB at the appropriate hospital. Yikes. I am sooo not ready to tempt fate like that.
