I’ve asked a lot of you lately and now I’m back with yet another request.* The ultrasound went well and revealed TWO gestational sacs!!!!! Here’s where it gets tricky. One of the sacs looks entirely on track for its gestational age of 5 weeks and 5 days. It has a yolk sac and measures for age. The other sac is about a quarter of the size and does not have a yolk sac. The sonographer said that it would be very unlikely for that sac to continue to develop. She said she expects it will be a vanishing twin. I say there are many unlikely things that do happen in spite of how unlikely they are and it hasn’t vanished yet.
So….this Mama is thrilled!!! At this point we for sure have a healthy little sac and I could.not be more excited about that. What is also important to me at this moment is that we have another tiny little guy that is still hanging on. If he wants to be here, we VERY MUCH want him to be a part of our family. Please, please, please send whatever you’ve got to that tiny little sac. We go back for another ultrasound in a week and if they have both continued to grow I will be the happiest Mama ever.
*I promise to pay you back with tons of adorable baby pictures.
