11 Weeks

All seems to be well with the little one. I am still tired, and very nauseated in the evenings. No morning sickness for me - but the evening sickness kicks in at about 4! Just in time for Jer to get home and deal with a grumpy, icky feeling me...lucky guy. My spotting has stopped (knock on wood), although I have to really watch my water intake and drink a LOT, or I get a little crampy. My NT scan is Thursday, and I'm looking forward to seeing my Peri. I saw her with my pregnancy with Christopher. At my last ultrasound, the tech said it looked like I had a complete placenta previa, so I'm curious to see what the Peri has to say about the previa.

That's about all that's going on here! I will post again after my NT scan, if not before.

All is well!

Thank you all so much for the support. I feel like I sounded a little dramatic and whiney. I am really SO anxious during pregnancy. I don't enjoy the feeling that I have no control, and all the worry, hope, and positive thoughts really can't change the outcome of things. It is nice to have a support group that doesn't think I'm utterly crazy. (Or maybe you do, and you're trying to treat the crazy lady nicely!)

I went in and met with my RE. I got another ultrasound, which showed the very tiny (1cm x 1.4cm) subchorionic hematoma. He also did a pelvic exam which hurt! It turns out that my cervix is irritated from progesterone, and a yeast infection - nice! Which is causing my vag to swell and irritate my cervix. The bleeding isn't coming from the uterus. He also said that up to 82% of pregnancies have small hematomas and may never know. He's not worried about it, and told me to stay away from google. ;) Thanks Dr. G.

I'm feeling better about it all. My doppler arrived this week, but since I'm not slim, and it's still early (10 weeks, 1 day), I haven't been able to find the HB just yet. I'm not worried, surprisingly. I have another appointment on Monday to check the infection and we'll get another peek at the baby. Then my NT scan is on February 4th.

Here's the latest photo - we have yet to come up with an "in the womb" nickname for the little one. He/she has all four limbs and a very large head right now! :)

I've begun spotting. It started very lightly after my ultrasound on Monday, but seems to come and go. I don't know if it's related to the SCH, being on blood thinners, or worse. I am trying to "take it easy" and I think I'll give my doctor a call this morning just to let him know what's going on. I know he can't do anything, and it's just a waiting game at this point.

I just really wish that Jer hadn't convinced me to "announce" at 9.5 weeks. If something happens, I'd rather not have to go into it. Trying to remain positive because the little one was looking so good on the ultrasound Monday. Please stay, little one, we want you so badly.

Hanging in there...

I am now 9 weeks and 4 days. I had an ultrasound this morning, and everything looks good with the baby. Heartrate of 176 and measuring right on target. The tech did find a subchorionic hematoma, which of course has me worried. I haven't had any bleeding related to it, so I just have to wait it out and pray that it resolves on it's own.

I am still reading blogs, just not posting as often. I hope to get back into responding and posting now that Jer is back at work -he was off for a week and we spent most of the time doing boring but necessary things around the house!
