update on baby  
Today matt and I got a shocker of news. Yesterday we were told the news that no future parent wants to hear. That we may be losing our baby. We were told that my hcg levels were getting low and that the pregnancy may not be viable. They told me to stay positive. But it was hard because originally I had gone for an ultrasound but then they kept giving me the run around about my pregnancy. I walked out of that clinic scared and upset to the point where I couldn't hold back my tears. They sent us to another place to get an ultrasound leaving us with no answers and no sympathy.
We took the drive over the imagery center only to be told I wouldn't be seen until wednesday. I felt defeated and was fighting the urge to burst into tears. I guess the man felt bad for me and went ahead and pushed for me to be seen. So I got scheduled for Tuesday at 10:15.
Matt couldn't go with me because we were already trying to hurry to make sure he had most of his jobs done before we go on a trip this weekend. He wanted to be there but was also scared of what they might find.
so my close friend, K, went with me. She stayed positive through the whole thing and even paid for me to be seen. the man from yesterday was there and knew my face right away. He asked me how I was doing. I told him that I was holding on to hope that everything was going to be okay.
We didn't even have to wait that long and the man had a big smile on his face to give me reassurance. i went in and got ready for my ultrasound. I talked to the tech and told her my concerns and she did have a look of worry. but she reassured me that everything would be okay. so she put the gel on my belly and I held my breath and prepared for the worse.
Imagine our surprise when we saw a fully active baby that wasn't the one month along like I was told. I have been four and half months pregnant!!!!!
My baby wasn't only active but he was literally giving me all the signs that he was there. He was kicking my bladder and moving around like crazy.
He is healthy and that's what makes me happy.

Dear God I was literally holding my breath till I saw you and your baby were okay!

I feel sad because they made you worry for no reason but happy because you are going to have a baby!!!

Oh thank god! I was holding my breath the whole time I was reading your post until you said that the baby's healthy. I know you wrote 'he' but is the baby definitely a boy or did you do what I sometimes do and inadvertently switch to the male pronoun? Either way, so so happy for you!

I just sat in my chair, weeping as I read your post. And I'm still weeping but it's happy and relieved for you. *big smooshy hugs

Wow! Four and a half months! That would explain the drop in HCG then, right? Doesn't it go down a little after the first trimester, or am I thinking of something else?

I'm so very happy for you. *hugs*
