So we had our 6 week sonogram on Tuesday... lots of information to process. First off... there are 2 sacs. Which is bittersweet, one is smaller (baby B) than the other. The biggest one (baby A) measured 5 weeks 6 days which is great, its right where we should be. Baby B was quite a bit smaller and Dr B didn't seem very optimistic about it. She said with Baby A there was a fetal pole and a heart beat, although it was slow, so all of that was good news. We will repeat the sono next Tuesday, hopefully we will see a strong heart beat and know what to expect with baby B.
I got the feeling she was a little disappointed mostly with the news that I was only 6 weeks, in her mind for some reason she thought I was 6 weeks 4 days. Which ironically 4 days is significant. I read on the What to Expect When you are Expecting website that at 6 weeks the baby has grown 10,000 times what it was at conception. Incredible!
The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock--the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is His reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; They shall not be ashamed, But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.
