Hey Ladies! Sorry I've been MIA the last week - I've been dealing with some terrible morning sickness and some anxiety. I had my first appointment with the CNM on Wednesday. I absolutely love her. The minute I told her about my past blighted ovum she said - "so you want an u/s to make sure everything is ok?" She read my mind. Unfortunately I couldn't get one until today. Fortunately the tech was AWESOME. She showed me EVERYTHING - even my fibroids and ovaries. She showed us the heartbeat - 176 BPM (but it was too early to hear it). I was SO relieved. She did tell me that my fibroid has grown some (from 6cm to 10cm in 4 months) and that the CNM will probably want to monitor it throughout my pregnancy as it will distort any hand measurements they try to do of my uterine growth. I was just so happy to finally see a growing baby with a heartbeat. When she first put the wand on my tummy - the baby moved - I could see little arms. As the tech kept moving it - baby turned his/her back to us. She didn't like the u/s one bit - so I may try to only have one more - we'll see. It just gave me the reassurance I needed. There is indeed a baby in there and growing the way it should. My due date is still August 7th. I'll try to be on more next week - I just feel sooooo terrible. And remember how I said I don't vomit. Well - I do now. Regularly!
Happy New Year!!!
