Sigh of relief

I've been restless the past few days, and the closer my u/s
appointment got, the worse it became. I slept uneasily last night.
Time dragged on in the waiting room ... but finally it was my turn.

To my great relief, one embryo is still right on track. Exhale.
Arm and leg buds were visible and I got to hear a lovely heartbeat.
Absolutely amazing.

The other has definitely arrested. It's sad, but I was prepared for the news.

Back to waiting for the next appointment. And to distract me, some
vacation time to spend with Linnea!

I bet you were a wreck heading into it.

I am delighted for the good news, but will always have a sad, quiet spot for the embryo that left.

Have a great vaca w Linnea. Give us some pics???

I'm sorry to hear about the other twin. But very relieved to hear about the surviving one. And it will be less risky with only one, not to mention the longer term. Still, it's sad to lose a baby.
