My second ultrasound was this morning. I hardly slept at all last night, and was the second person into the clinic in the morning. The three gestational sacks were visible immediately, and they've gotten much bigger since my first scan. I'm happy to report that the doctor easily found a 122 bpm heartbeat in sac A. She then moved over to sac C, which had a heartbeat of 124 bpm. I'll admit, I teared up when I heard the whooshing of those tiny fragile hearts. Sac B is a bit of a mystery. The doctor wasn't able to clearly see anything in the sac, but she really wasn't sure. She said that the position could just be making it difficult to see anything. My next scan is on Jan 8th, when I'll be 8 weeks. Hopefully by then they'll be able to get a clear picture of B. Honestly, I'm okay with any outcome for B. As it is, I'm over the moon about hearing 2 heartbeats. If they both stick around, I'll be happier than I could ever put into words. If I see three heartbeats at my next ultrasound, it will be scary and overwhelming but also amazing.
What's really puzzling me is the fact that I still have no symptoms. I am 6w5d today, and my beta came back at nearly 67,000. How am I so completely oblivious to what's going on in my body? There are at least 2 beating hearts in there, and I don't feel a thing! I think the lack of symptoms are making it harder for me to believe that this is real. I'm still not associating that p-word with myself. I don't really want to wake up and puke, but it would make this seem a bit more real.
