Hey there, Lisa,
Do you suspect you might be getting automatically risked out b/c of what happened last time? I hope it's just that they're being thoughtful and not wanting you to wait and worry b/c of your loss in October. Was it the OB care or the hospital in particular that you had so much trouble with last time? I'm sorry you have to return somewhere where you have such bad memories. No chance of you guys moving before Sept., is there?
|AFM: I think I just *may* have a platypus and not a duck after all, mamas! Little swimmy baby was there again today, bigger than last week (and yet still soooo tiny!), with a hb of 129 and he/she measured bang on for dates. And the best news of all....the subchorionic hematoma has SHRUNK and appears to be resolving. Hip, hip, hooray! : So unless I have more bleeding, no more messing with me/us until my 1st official prenatal appt. on March 10th.
Actually, the appt. was supposed to be a week earlier, but I would have been a day shy of 10 wks. when I went in again, and I was afraid we wouldn't be able to hear the hb with doppler yet, so I rescheduled it for 11 wks. instead; I want to stack the odds in my favor as much as possible, yk? Think that was a good move?
While sitting in the office lobby waiting for the nurse to give me the "official" u/s results, I also decided to start doing something, and wanted to invite anyone who was interested in doing it with me: thus far, the hours, days, and weeks have been creeping by soooooo slowly, b/c I've been so worried and anxious. Well, I can't make time pass any faster, unfortunately, but I've decided I *can* celebrate each a little as each week passes. So I've resolved to do something nice for myself each week on the day I turn the next week pg. For me, it's a Tuesday, I think. So I'm thinking of nice, happy little things like painting my toenails, or treating myself to a hot fudge sundae, or watching a chick flick, or maybe a white chocolate mocha, mmmm. At least until I can finally say goodbye to the first trimester. Anyone else want to mark time this way with me? I think it's far healthier than morosely sitting here, waiting to m/c again.
