I am wearing two different shoes today. Not even the same color. One black, one brown. I will be spending alot of time at my desk. No observations for me. I think it is too early to blame things on pregnancy forgetfulness, I’m just an idiot. It was a very rough morning today. First, after ironing my blouse (I never remember to iron at night), I put it on, only to find that it would not button over my ridiculous boobs. Quite naturally, tears followed. Then, I get in the car only to hear about a 4-5 mile back up on the Beltway…always a good time when you want to puke. Then of course, around 11:00, someone points out that my shoes are different. Just lovely.
Complaining aside, we had our first OB appt yesterday and it went well. I really liked the doctor. He seems to have just the right blend of caution and common sense, which is how I like to at least think I am. (Those of you who know me, please don’t burst my bubble). I was hoping there wouldn’t need to be an exam but apparently the state of VA requires complete STD testing so back to the stirrups I went. Only good thing about needing the exam was that since I was there, he decided to do another ultrasound! I’ll always take a chance to sneak a peak at the critter. First, I was surprised at how much better the equipment at the RE is. I could barely make out anything on this ultrasound. Doc said he saw the heartbeat right away, I couldn’t for the life of me. But it measured right on target.
I was even more nervous about the u/s because I had the completely irrational fear that the Pro.emtrium was keeping me pregnant and I worried that by stopping it last Friday (on drs orders but still), the baby would stop growing. I know, crazy. But seeing a bigger blob yesterday made me happy.
Only thing I’ve realized is that I’ve become completely spoiled by all these ultrasounds. Now our next appointment isn’t until March 6 and our next ultrasound probably won’t be for 11 more weeks! I doubt we’re going to do the nuchal fold testing, wouldn’t change anything so what’s the point really. If our insurance covers it, I might, just for a chance to peak in there again!
Oh…and thanks to those of you who got my Bev-niner reference last week. Took awhile for someone to mention it and I started to feel really really old!
