Baby #2 Update.

I apologize for this photo, I don't have a scanner!!

While in Albuquerque last week (pictures to come!) I went to Carenet for a pregnancy test and ultrasound. I am 8 weeks pregnant and due on May 10th, my mom's birthday! I don't know if you can tell from the fuzzy ultrasound photo, but the baby is the on the top and there is a mass right below him/her. The woman that was doing the ultrasound said she had never seen anything like it. She said it could be that I was carrying twins and one didn't make it, it could be a vascular mass.. but the bottom line is that she doesn't know. I sent the info to my midwife and she said the same thing. As long as there is no bleeding/cramping they are not concerned. I have struggled with how I feel about this, but the bottom line is that could be nothing and I don't want to grieve the potential loss of a child unless I know for sure that is what happened. Right now we are rejoicing in our one healthy little peanut.
And as for the morning sickness.. it is still going strong. I am still taking Unisome and B6, and I have added Zofran. The combo is pretty good, but most days are just miserable. Right now it is 8pm and I am still in my pajama's. I spend the day on the couch or sleeping while Moses sleeps. Honestly, I have a hard time keeping a good attitude since so far it has been just as bad as it was with Mo and that lasted 6 months. 4 more months of this?! Yikes! However, I must say that I am so grateful to have the Ohst's here, Kat who comes and helps with Moses and such a wonderful husband. They have been so helpful and I am very, very grateful!
A doctor that reviews ultrasounds for Carenet recommended that I see my midwife asap to evaluate what she called "a placental mass". I will let you all know if my midwife suggests that we do anything more.

That sounds like a big deal, placental mass? Any concerns regarding it or is it still just all okay provided there is no bleeding or cramping. Praying still, friend!

Thanks guys.
I just spoke with Carenet yesterday afternoon, and have not yet spoke with my midwife. I'm hoping that will happen today, I will post an update as soon as I know.
