brinalicious - Yes, I did go to the inauguration, and it was awesome!
I haven't been craving Raisan Bran myself, but I have been craving lots of fruit. It seems to be one of the only things that is consistently appealing to me. The dinner of pistachios, jello, and Raisan Bran sounds pretty good though! I had a lunch last week where the only thing I wanted was cheese - so I ate a whole pack of sliced cheese - like 12 pieces!
ShwarmaQueen - congrats on seeing the heartbeat!
So, I think I've been able to keep my stress level down some by not doing doppler or ultrasound. However, I did get a full prenatal bloodwork done last thursday at my OB visit - after this I'm switching over to only my homebirth midwife's care. I've been seeing a Nurse Practitioner at the OB's and she is really awesome - very homebirth friendly and respectful of my choices.
Anyway, now that I've gotten the full bloodwork done, I want to know the results like, Now! I've been that annoying patient who called two times yesterday and left a message once asking if they could tell me the results. They had told me the nurse would call me, but she never did. I spent all yesterday stressing about the results - I was not able to get any work done. At the end of the day I called and found out that the results hadn't even arrived yet and that's why they hadn't called. They said the nurse would call when they had them. So today I am itching to call them, but I'm preventing myself because I know they will call me. But I am having trouble not being antsy, stressed, and I am having trouble getting any work done.
So, can you please help me not be stressed? I have tried to tell myself worrying and stressing about it is not going to change the results. I am also telling myself most likely the results won't tell much anyway, since even if I'm about to miscarry that would not show up in my hcg numbers unless I do actually start to miscarry. Telling myself those things don't seem to be helping much. Why can't I just let go and not be stressed about this given the above? I need to find a project to work on to keep me busy, but every time the phone rings, I jump at it and I just can't seem to be focused.
But at least I passed yesterday totally uneventfully and I am now officially further along then I was during the last miscarriage. I am also only two weeks away from being out of the first trimester!
