Sorrowful


We didn't have good results from our ultrasound on Thursday.  The nurse in our dr's office couldn't find anything but explained their equipment wasn't too powerful.  We went in for a detailed ultrasound yesterday afternoon.  Right away the technician told us she wouldn't be able to give us any information but she would call our doctor that afternoon.  Immediately she said "there is a pregnancy" (no surprise).  Then after a minute she said "I can tell you that this pregnancy is not 9 weeks."  At that point we both looked at each other and knew.  I asked her to take a picture and she said "of what?"  This made me even more sad but I responded "of the pregnancy." 

We had to wait in the lobby about 30-40 minutes while they called the doctor.  Since my doctor was already gone for the weekend they had to wait for the on-call doctor to call back.  We waited that long to be told to call my regular doctor on Monday.  This time period was very difficult because I was trying to hold it together for the girls who were in the lobby.  Kaye immediately knew something was wrong but patiently didn't ask.  When final word came the only information they could tell us was the baby measured 6 weeks 5 days, no cardiac activity.

We are so sad.

All I can say is that we are all praying for you, and for the little one that has touched our heart.
