7 weeks today!
I think today shaved 5 years off my life. I woke up the morning and got started with my normal routine. Then I went to the bathroom and realized I was bleeding. Not spotting, bleeding. I called the re office and they put me to the nurses voicemail. Then I called dh and barely held it together. He told me just to get in the car and head to the dr office and he would meet me there since its an hour from our house. On the way there all that is going through my head is this is another miscarriag. How many eggs do I have left frozen? When can we try again? I was convinced.
I called again when I was about minutes away and they said they would work me in for a sono. I am prepared for the worst and dh is telling me how we will get through it whatever happens. Dr. H comes in and starts the sono immediately pointing out a heartbeat. Wait.. a what? Yep, a heart beat at 142. He said everything looked good and he didn't see any clots. So I took off the rest of the day and laid in the recliner. We still have an appt on Monday.
This past week I made my first ob appointment. I had to get a little pushy with the girl at the front desk because their policy is for the first ob appointment to be with a midwife. I was adamant and got my way. So next week we have a sono on Monday and an ob appointment on Friday.
Still exhausted and morning sickness this time is totally different. Last time it was morning, noon and night sickness where I was vomiting around the clock until 6 months. This time, I have not thrown up but have had to force myself to eat. Everything seems disgusting. It is like a smell gets stuck in my nose and I can't get rid of it. Preggy pops and ginger snaps have been my best friend.
My poor husband is trying, bless his heart. Yesterday he made me scrambled eggs. I ran out of the kitchen from the smell and ended up feeding them too the dog.
Still haven't told my mom...
