I hit 20w today, I can't believe how fast it's gone! Feeling lots of movement and Beloved was able to feel movement just yesterday! I was super excited, it's been something I've been wanting to share with him, I'll randomly grab his hand and smoosh it into my belly, and he'll say something like "are we gonna play the feel the baby game again?" I just laugh.
I'm snuggled into the couch, looking at the drift in my driveway, pretty sure I won't be going in to work tonight as I don't think my car will even make it out of the drive. Here in the midwest with lots of you, watching it snow sideways, not really excited about the foot-ish of snow that is planned for us.
I am late scheduling my 20w scan, which my OB said he would be okay doing an abbreviated (10-15min) scan, just to check major organs, but when his nurse called the radiologist they said they can't get a good look at the baby in under 40 minutes. My response was, I don't want a "good look" at the baby, I want a quick scan. If they see something concerning, I'll concede to a longer more indepth scan. Totally not telling them that though for fear they will just say that something MIGHT be wrong just so they can do a longer scan. So my doc is just going to do it in the office. I was a little frustrated that a radiology tech was trying to push a longer scan on me. I mean really? Urg. Anywho, I'm thankful my doc offered the in office scan.
Then there was the convo with my mom (who overall is very supportive of my choices, she just has questions sometimes) who said, "but honey the doctor said that the scan is safe", to which I responded, "yup and the doctors also used to say that xraying the moms abdomen before labor to check the baby's position was safe, oh yeah and doctors use to say thalidomide was safe to take for morning sickness too!" Sorry, just don't trust everything that comes out of a doctors mouth just because he's a doctor.
I'm uber jealous of those of you in the warm southern states. It will be spring here soon enough :)
Kristin - so sorry to hear you're still fighting MS keeping your little guy in my prayers.
