A New Milestone!

Filed under: Uncategorized — by lhoham @ 5:27 pm

Today is a day of celebration!!!!!

My little baby has made it to 13 weeks!!!!!!!

Today has been a great day of excitement and joy. I never really thought I’d be able to make it to this point. And it feels amazing! For those of you who don’t know, my longest pregnancy before this was 12w6d – we lost our first at that time. But, this one has made it through! I did wake up with a feeling of anxiety. I went to the bathroom at 6am and kept saying “please let me still be pregnant, please let me still be pregnant.” And sure enough – all was well! The bleeding is constant, but expected as a result of the sub-chorionic hemorage. I’m still queasy and having weird dreams. I’m still pregnant. wahoo!!!! And, yes, I’m still on bedrest – but that’s okay – I can do anything if it means I can have a healthy baby! I’m including a handful of pictures that I finally was able to get onto my computer.

This first one is my 10w5d ultrasound:

This next one is my 11w4d ultrasound:

And here are some 13 week belly shots.

  2. Congratulations- a wonderful milestone! So cool (well, not “cool” but medically “neat”) that you can see the bleed on the u/s.
    I continue to pray that all is well, and hopefully you’ll be free from bed rest soon.

  3. Congrats on making it to week 13. That must be such a relief for you. I hope that things start getting better with the bleed and you might get paroled from bed rest. Either way, you are doing a great job. I love the cute pictures of your bean and your fabulous baby belly.

    Take care.

  7. I’m loving the belly shots! So cute, just like you! 🙂 Keep healing! It will all be worth it in the long run and you will have a GREAT story to tell your little bean. Hugs!
