It appears we have a cornual ectopic pregnancy, worse than ectopic because it's in the interstitial portion of the fallopian tube where it meets the uterus. Continuing or ending the pregnancy (by operating) can rupture or damage my uterus, not to mention threaten my life. The doctor is hoping that he's wrong, and doesn't want to make any decisions to end it until we get a look next week to confirm what we see now. If we see the same thing, depending on how far along the baby is, I'll either take medication or get operated on to miscarry.
I'm NUMB, not angry, not happy, maybe a little sad. One thing that became rooted in my DNA with Daniel's pregnancy is that we don't always know all things. Daniel was supposed to have Downs, not live, etc. But here he is, healthy and normal, never in my wildest dreams did I think with all the evidence and circumstances that it would be so. Do I have hope? Not really. But I trust the Lord and not my own understanding. One foot in front of the other.
My husband and I would really appreciate the prayers.
