~~My name is Tamra. I am happily married with a beautiful, spunky 3 year old girl named Irelynn Irene (aka Noog).... We are expecting baby girl #2 sometime in September. We are naming her Charlotte Amelia(aka Charlee..No we didn't get this name from the tv show) ...Praying and hoping for a VBAC
~~ I have parenting practices that people find to be "extreme" but since joining Babygaga, I see that they are very normal!~~
~~ I can say that I am NOT the perfect parent. My daughter eats too much chocolate, stays up too late, and yes sometimes I go against my "peaceful" ways and yell...~~
I am a mom. My main concern is MY child's health, safety and happiness..
We didn't get to see/hear the heartbeat, but we did see the yolk sac and the fetal pole The doctor also saw a small sub tear under where the baby is. He said that he wasn't concerned by it though. That they are common. He told me to stop taking my baby aspirin and up my folic acid again. He said that should help heal it.
He thinks that I may be a few days, maybe two days, behind my LMP due date. I should be 6 weeks and 4 days. He is thinking 6 weeks and 2 days. He thinks that is why we aren't seeing a heartbeat yet. He said that there is no call for concern though and that I may have implanted late. Which confuses me. I can explain why if you are wondering. Lol. I trust him though and he was very reassuring
Zachary was at school, so he didn't go. I had to take Evan with me though. When we got in the room, the nurse asked if I wanted the receptionist to watch him. At first, I said no. After she left and I was undressing, Evan asked what the doctor was going to do. I explained that he was going to look at my woo-woo (what Randel taught them to say!). He said he wanted to go with the lady. So I let him. Afterwards, when I showed him the picture, I asked him what it was. He said "Our baby?" I said "Are you sure?" He said "Or a picture of your woo-woo!" LMAO!! We haven't told the boys yet. We may soon though.
I go back next Friday for another u/s. He is confident that we will see a heartbeat then
