May The “Fourth” Be With Us

I know, it’s the lamest Mum-joke I could think of.

I thought I’d better practice just in case I need a stock of Mum-jokes in my future…

…but all jokes aside, for any new followers to our blog, what I mean is, this is our fourth pregnancy after 3 miscarriages in a row. We had our first scan yesterday and it looked good!

By good, I mean it was what you would expect to see from an early first trimester scan. It was like a big blurry screen with a little circle in the middle with a teeny tiny flicker inside it, which was exactly what we were hoping to see.

Our embryo was still quite small, so we could only get a measure showing about 6 weeks and 2 days. We could clearly see the heartbeat, but it was tricky to get a reading on it, so we don’t know what the rate was.

I was expecting the measurement to be more like 7 weeks, but at such an early stage we’re not worrying too much about the accuracy of it all.

This is good news for now, but like always, because of our balanced translocation we’re not really letting ourselves get too excited and will just take each day as it comes until our next scan, which is about 3 weeks away.

While we were chatting to our OB, we decided to find out what the gender of our last miscarriage was. He told us it was a girl… which is interesting, as we seem to have managed to alternate each time: girl, boy, girl…

So, our money on this one is “boy”.

What do you think?

Feel free to take a guess and let us know your thoughts. I’m feeling like it’s a boy, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see 😉

Until then, I am grateful we’re heading away up north for a couple of weeks as that ought to take our minds of it all.

You might notice things go a little quiter on our website and blog while we’re away, but if you like to follow along our social media channels you can still see our daily strategies on facebook and twitter.

We probably won’t be posting as regularly on Instagram (but I will pop some pics of our holiday up along the way). I’m not really sure what the phone or internet reception will be like, but I will do my best to post and respond to emails when I can!

Until we get back, please keep your fingers, toes and everything else crossed for us! 


Before you go, have you or someone you know experienced miscarriage, stillbirth or infertility?

Throughout the month of October, we will be sharing stories to raise awareness and reduce the stigma associated with these “taboo” topics.

Check out this post for more info on how you can share your story.
