Quick post ...

Ultrasound today.  Nearly peed my pants in the waiting room.  I guess that's what geriatric pregnancy will get you!!!

1 gestational sac.  1 yolk sac.  1 teenie tiny itsy bitsy baby (crown to rump length .18cm).  (Seriously).  (That's small). 

Measuring 5 weeks and 6 days (both gestational sac and baby). 

1 perfect little heartbeat.  105 bpm.

Due date 12/14/11.

Holy crap.

So. Um. Yeah.

It's been a while.  A loooooong while.

It's been an interesting year, to say the least.  I've had some crazy gynecological stuff going on ...namely dysfunctional daily uterine bleeding for just about a year.  I ended up getting my gall bladder taken out at the end of August, followed by another D&C for ANOTHER early miscarriage in late September.  The bleeding never stopped after the D&C ...but improved somewhat.  It stopped responding to hormones.  We mainly blame it on some seriously intense adenomyosis.  And the ever present PCOS.  Ultimately, I decided very reluctantly to have a hysterectomy.  Which I was dreading in most ways.  I decided to actually take my vacation that was scheduled and not use all of my vacation time as sick time ...and planned on scheduling the hyster when I got back from a wonderful trip to Florida.  I spent 11 days in the warmth of the gulf where I watched baby A2 learn all about the ocean and the golden girl explore what it really means to be on spring break in a spring break town as a teenager. 

I was laying on the beach and turned over to stand up and ..umm...had the most crazy out of control pain in my right lower quadrant that passed about 2 minutes later.  I thought....hmm.  And then it happened three more times.  It was a familiar pain.  Round ligament pain.

So I came home from Florida and peed on a stick.  And saw two very, very dark lines.

It seems that I have an appropriately doubling beta currently in the 10,000's.  And it looks like I might be having a baby instead of a hysterectomy. Ultrasound scheduled for Monday.

Which somehow led me here.  We'll see how this goes.
