7 weeks, 3 days......

So, I have continued with the once weekly ultrasounds.  The last one was on Wednesday and the baby's heartbeat was 130 beats per minute and measured at 6 weeks, 6 days. (right on track) I have passed the blood clot also with no other clots in sight.  YEAAHHH! The baby is still implanted on the c-section scar, but it appears as though the placenta is trying to grow on the opposite side of the scar. This is a great thing because the risk of the placenta growing outside of my uterus has long as it continues to grow this way. I now run the risk of placenta previa. I will have to continue getting ultrasounds weekly to stay on top of anything that may arise.  If I get to 9 weeks then I will be referred to maternal fetal medicine for high risk pregnancy.  The drs tell me that at 9 weeks, there is a 95% chance that the pregnancy is viable.

I get another ultrasound on Thursday and will update again.


  1. How are you feeling about all of this? I am excited to hear the baby is growing and that things are moving along. I hope you are getting rest and that you are being pampered!

    1. I feel so many mixed emotions. I am showing already which makes not getting too excited more difficult. Whenever I begin to obsess I just pray....this is out of my hands and I need to remember this. The good news is that I haven't made it this far without miscarrying!
