The 5 Week Scare

January 27, 2018

 **I am currently 14 weeks with a singleton**

 

As many of you know, I had a miscarriage last year.  It was devastating and I still think about it every single day.  

 

I woke up on Monday morning at 4am with blood on the sheets.  I ran to the bathroom and started bawling my eyes out.  This is EXACTLY when and how the previous miscarriage started. I was beside myself.  I woke my husband up and he tried to calm me, but I could see how terrified he was, too.  I emailed my RE right away. She e-mailed me back by 7am and had us in for a scan by 9am. 

 

The ride to the clinic was mostly silent. I looked like a mess. I didn't even brush my teeth. 

 

The first thing the sonographer said to me was that it's very hard to see anything at just 5 weeks. I was TINY pregnant.  My heart stopped. I didn't want to look. 

 

Then there THEY were. TWO sacs! TWO babies! They could clearly see two sacs and they seemed OK for now. We couldn't believe it. I thought I was having another miscarriage, and here we were just finding out that we were having twins instead!

 

We left relieved, but also cautious.  I know someone who lost a twin at 7 weeks, and went on to have a healthy singleton.  Another friend who was pregnant with twins lost one twin at 5 MONTHS pregnant. I can't even imagine. 

 

So, as happy as we were, we were also trying not to get too excited.  We were only 5 weeks along.

 

Our next scan will be next week at 6 weeks, where hopefully we can see the heartbeats!
