Hope has managed to foil us yet again (thank G-d).
S/he grew from 5w4d to 5w6d (in 10 days, but I’ll take it) AND s/he has a heartbeat (46 bpm).
Both are signs that the pregnancy is struggling, but still most likely to fail and it’s probably just a matter of time.
But at least we have another week with them.
Ultrasound #4 is scheduled for next Tuesday. We’re praying hard for growth and an increased heart rate. Although, instead of praying, I should say hoping as we don’t do the whole prayer thing.
Stubborn, refusing to follow expectations, scrappy, and maybe even a little bit bitchy about it? Yeah, this is definitely my kid.
