I had my second dr appt today. I am 6 weeks on the dot according to my calculations. I was tracking my ovulation by every device known to man so I am pretty darn certain of when this little nugget was conceived. That said we did not get to see a heartbeat. I was sorta expecting that with it being so early in the pregnancy but man was I hoping we would. It would have made me feel a ton better. We did get to see the gestational sac and the yolk sac and they looked normal. The tech that I saw said everything looked "about" the right size for me being 6 weeks. "About"! Could they please come up with something more comforting than about? In the back of my mind "About" now means "well we are not going to tell you this yet but we can clearly tell from these measurements that your baby is surely going to perish and you will never carry a child to full term". She scheduled me to come back in 2 weeks and was even joking that we would be able to see all the little heartbeats then. Really, at this time, NOT FUNNY! I guess I will go with cautiously optimistic at this point. On a good note she was much much nicer with the vag wand! My doctor uses it as a form of torture but she was very nice with it. I guess they teach you that when you actually go to school to be a ultrasound tech!
One of our dogs, Bossman is very sick. While I was away on vacation my DH had to take him to the vet. He was not acting right and his abdomen was slightly distended. They sent him to a specialist since the tests they ran came back inconclusive. I appears that he has a tumor or some sort growing on or around his heart and it is causing not only fluid buildup but also all of his organs to be pushed down. My DH has him back at the specialist as we speak and they are trying to pull some of the fluid off of his heart to give him some relief. He is on a few different heart meds and also a diuretic. I am hoping this helps him. If not we may have to send him for a very expensive surgery to try and remove some of the tumor. This is my DH first dog and he is very upset about it all.
This is the Boss before he got sick.
This is him now, well about a week ago his abdomen has actually gotten bigger, poor Bossman
