The baby waved at me today!
I've been having a bit of a tough week. In the last 5 or so days, I lost every single symptom I had. Seriously, I couldn't feel less pregnant. No nausea. Food aversions - gone. Cramping - gone. Excessive peeing - gone. Excessive tiredness - somewhat gone. Bloating - gone. I'm eating fine, and, I've somehow lost 7 pounds.
Now, before anyone rolls their eyes and guffaws (yes, I said guffaws) because they are suffering through terrible symptoms, imagine how nervous it would make you if they all suddenly went away. There should be some happy middle ground - enough symptoms that we know something good is happening in there, but, not enough to feel really lousy.
Anyway, I was very nervous going into my first OB appointment today. But, they took me right into the ultrasound room, and there was the beautiful heart beating. And then, suddenly, the baby began squirming around and waving! I couldn't stop giggling! Even the doctor was giggling! I know that each appointment will bring something new and wonderful, and today didn't disappoint at all!
The doctor said everything looks wonderful and that I've passed a big milestone as, in his words, most miscarriages occur before 10 weeks. They are , for various reasons, considering me high risk (which is what I wanted!), so, I'll get a higher level of care and more ultrasounds!
So, I see him again in a week and the high risk team in two weeks for my first trimester screening. I think this is all finally starting to feel real!
