I now believe in miracles...

First off let me start off my saying how much I have adored and appreciated all of your wonderful prayers and well wishes since I announced my miscarriage. All the emails and comments filled and warmed my heart when I needed it the most.

Today as I type this I am still pregnant.



YES!


I,Crooked Eyebrow, am pregnant.


Where do I start otherwise to tell you how fortunate I am? All I can say is that miracles happen and I would have NEVER thought one would happen to me.

Going back a few days...
The gestational sac that I did have stopped developing and was basically gone, never developing a yolk sac as it was supposed to. Hence, a miscarriage. The doctors office continued to monitor my hormone levels after the miscarriage, hoping to see them drop and go back to normal.

Then a few days later they became concerned that my levels were still going up like they were supposed to. Their first thought? An ectopic pregnancy. At this point I had several ultrasounds and there was no other explanation. Nothing was seen during the last several ultrasounds. The nurse practitioner's orders were to have me come back to the clinic in the morning, so I did.

That next morning I undressed just like any old time and was somewhat distraught because it was just how the morning of the miscarriage news started. I figured I had already heard the worst, so what else could go wrong. So as the ultrasound went along the nurse stopped, paused and said "oh my, we have another, with a complete yolk sac". At that point, I sat up and told her to shut up. Seriously I did,but then I quickly apologized to her and asked that she please not joke with me. She wasn't and I told her how much I loved her.

Yes folks, I had two. One of which is still perfectly in there, my miracle embryo.


Even better? This past Monday I went in for a follow up ultrasound to check on the said miracle embryo. The verdict? Still there with a heartbeat.

What does all this mean??It is most likely that I had twins, one embryo miscarried and I was blessed with another. Crooked Eyebrow is still pregnant and thanking God for this beautiful gift that I have been praying for over the last 7 years to have. So thank you for all your prayers and thoughts, they worked. I wish I could give all of you big, wet kisses and bear hugs to show you just how much I love you.

I lost a twin pregnancy and then SURPRISE my first was there. they are still unsure if she was a triplet or if I somehow ovulated before i miscarried and somehow she implanted despite the miscarriage!!
