Yeah! There is only one!

pregnancy calendar

I have been having dreams that I am carrying more then one baby. From the beginning I was pretty sure that it wasn't one of those prophetic dreams. I was pretty sure that it was just one of those crazy pregnancy dreams. You know the ones. And in my dreams I could hear two heart beats while I was getting my ultrasound. Logically I knew you can't hear heartbeats during an ultrasound you can just see them.

And I knew that Heavenly Father knows me better then to think I was the kind of woman who could handle twins. Let's face it, I can barely handle one at a time. We all know we will not be tested above what we are able to handle. Now I know I don't know everything, but I am pretty sure I couldn't handle twins.

My belly is bigger then it should be. And I am a lot sicker then I was with my other four kids. So twins kind of seemed logical.

But there is only one little guy in there. Along with an extra large cyst on my one remaining ovary. The lovely cyst is producing excess amounts of hormones, which makes me sicker then usual. This all makes sense.

We are keeping an eye on it to see if it goes away. Since I have a history of destructive cysts, We need to watch it closely. I may need surgery during my pregnancy. We can't let this cyst wipe out my one remaining ovary while I am pregnant, like the last one wiped out my right one. Ovaries produce estrogen and progesterone which are kind of necessary for pregnancy.

I'm not too worried about it right now. My cysts usually cause a lot of pain before I need to be operated on, and we are not to that point.

Anyhow, ultrasound done. Baby healthy. All is well. Sort of.

4 people know I love comments!:

I was so happy to see you again at the doctors, but was sad when you got called in so dang quickly! Do you see Doctor D or Huish? I have Dr. D and love him. I hope all goes well with the cyst. It's no fun being sick while pregnant! I can't believe the last time I saw you was when you were pregnant with your last one! Crazy!
