So, today's ultrasound was inconclusive. My ovaries looked fine (according to the tech - I couldn't tell the ovaries from the rest of it), with no cysts to be found. And the fallopian tubes were clear - no ectopic pregnancy for us. All of which is good news. Still doesn't explain the abdominal pain... but they're going to keep looking into that.

Speaking of looking into things, the ultrasound tech decided to take a look at the uterus to check out the new Bear Cub. She could see a gestational sac, but nothing inside yet. I was extremely freaked about that, but she said that sometimes before six weeks you can't always see the fetal pole, etc. She wasn't concerned at all, so I tried not to be, either. Then, she moved the transducer to the side, and another sac popped into view. There, hanging out in my very own uterus, were *two* gestational sacs, side by side.

What the hell?!

Now, to be fair, the tech said that it could be a single sac, and we were just looking at it wrong. But, there's also the very real possibility that I'm carrying twins.

I'm going to go vomit now. I am so freaked out.

Yup, "wow" about sums it up. Maybe it's a good sign, though. Given your history with accidents, unplanned twins might be quite the good luck sign for you and Husband.

That's a much more positive outlook than I've been having lately! Hopefully you're on the right track...

Just another accident to add to the chaos. Yay!
