I have a nagging feeling something is up with blobby. I saw the ultrasound, and there was just one blobby. But I am nervous there was another one hiding behind him. Identicals do not run in our families at all, and my RE didn't say anything (although he was reluctant to say there was only one in there, which was weird). It is freaking me out a bit. I am super happy/qualified to have one blobby at a time. I worry that I will get my midwife ultrasound at 20 weeks and get a huge surprise. I don't like surprises! I can't get over my quick beta doubling time and high numbers though. Especially after looking at those stupid charts where I fall outside of "average" for a singleton pregnancy and fall normally within the average for multiples (thanks a lot betabase!) Plus, the doctor said it will be a "fun" pregnancy. WTH is that supposed to mean!? Does he think a surprise baby is "fun"? I don't think so doc!
So what I am asking is for those of you who are rational to tell me there is only one healthy blobby and ease my mind! It seems like a dumb thing to worry about, but what can I say? There is something creepy about a hiding baby. Something . . . sinister
As I recall back a few months ago, didn't you only have one mature follicle? I know that you had a few others, but they were all under 18 mm, right? So that should make you feel a little better that there is only one baby in there
Okay, here's something that may make you feel better. I only had one mature follicle as well, but my beta at 12 dpo was 99. Average is 36. So of course I wondered if I somehow had two in there! But I've had two ultrasounds and both showed just one baby. I think the fertility drugs we took just created some super high achieving babies, that's all.
With blobby being so little on the u/s - is it possible they would miss a second if it was there? I don't havethe knowledge to answer that, but my gut instinct says you have one perfect but very strong blobby or blobette
