Monday was our first appointment with the OB/GYN and we had a Ultrasound scheduled. I was about 11 weeks along with an Oct 25th due date. DT and I were beyond excited to see our healthy little baby.
We weren’t quite prepared for what we did see. Instead of a little body and heartbeat, they found a large mass filling up my uterus. The doctors exact words were, “I have never seen anything like this before”. He said words like, Molar pregnancy, tumors, fibroid, none of which sounded good or resulted in a healthy little baby. My heart is broken, 11 weeks of dreaming of my baby, planning, being excited, all down the drain.
He took my blood to check my HCG level to determine a Molar pregnancy, and if the levels were high, that is what it is.
Sure enough he called later that day saying my HCG was through the roof and he was assuming a Molar pregnancy and would refer me to a specialist at the Medical Center in Houston.
All day yesterday from 8-5 I was poked, prodded and measured. I had another Ultrasound, a pelvic exam, more blood-work, an IV, and an MRI. All to confirm the Molar pregnancy.
I will hear from the doctors today with results of the MRI and to schedule the extraction. I will be closely monitored for 6 to 12 months so none of the Mole tissue continues to grow. Hopefully, we will try for another baby within the year. Only time will tell.
So I have been missing from my blog for all this time, sick with early pregnancy symptoms (or so I thought). Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers during this trying time for us. I miss you all and hope to be back to myself soon.
