I returned to the Dr. yesterday for my follow up appointment and to have another ultrasound to check the baby's growth as well as the hematoma. The baby has grown A LOT since week 7. It has grown so much that it was actually measuring big...which is kinda crazy because I have been so sick this go around that I lost 2 pounds since my last appointment.
The baby looked great. It was moving around like crazy. The ultrasound tech was having a hard time keeping up with the baby. Heart rate was strong and everything with the baby looked perfect. YAY!
The hematoma had not changed in size at all. BUT the baby has and for that I am thankful. Of course I would have loved for the hematoma to be gone as well, but as long as the baby is healthy and growing then my prayers are being answered. The tech also discovered a new fibroid and a cyst that were not seen at my last appointment. The dr. is not concerned about those things and so therefore I am not going to be either. I am trusting in the plan the Lord has for this precious baby.
Here is a picture of our baby at 11 weeks (although it is measuring almost 12 weeks)
Thank you to all of you who have taken the time to call, message, email, etc. that you are praying for us. It really means a lot to us. I have felt so much love over the last couple weeks and especially yesterday as I would receive messages on my way to the dr. I am very thankful to each of you who have been praying along side of us and are continuing to pray.
