Heart Beats, But Slow-Updated

Updated: I forgot to mention earlier that I had a nice surprise today. I wasn't going into mass today, but decided to last minute even though I would be a few minutes late. It was the Feast of St. Blaise and they did the blessing of the throats and asked for his intercession for all healing. So glad I was there, and also that I got to share with Fr. Edward our story afterwards.

Thank you for all for your concern and prayers. It was a "wait and see" sort of appointment today, rather than the strong heartbeat we were hoping to hear (that we had heard earlier than this date with both our living boys). There was a heartbeat and a lot of growth since last week, so that is excellent news. However the heartbeat itself was on the low side. We had one loss that had a heartbeat this early, and it was also low (75-along with other indications things weren't going well like HCG that didn't double). We didn't get an exact measurement on the heartbeat as the doc scanned me and not the ultrasound tech (who isn't in on Tues). So we were unable to see if this baby's heart was stronger than the baby we lost. It would have also been helpful to measure the baby, since every baby we lost showed growth well behind their dates. But he was unable to provide that level of detail. I go back next Monday to be scanned by the tech. So we are grateful for what we have thus far, but continue to be in wait mode. Hopefully Monday we will get the sigh of relief we need. God still surrounds me with peace, and I know your prayers have a lot to do with that. We know we are doing everything we can, and the rest is left to God!
