I lost it at the OB today-Nugget's great

We're at the point where my cord started to fail with Aidan. At this point my body was failing him and I had no idea. I felt fantastic, my belly was growing and I thought everything was perfect. So yeah I had a lot of anxiety going into this appointment.

Nugget is doing great and my cord is working perfectly. He's head down, measuring a few days ahead and weighing in at 1lb 13oz. He grew 8 oz in 2 weeks. He has Aidan's nose. He took a practice breath and was "talking"/moving his mouth.

When we saw and heard the blood flow through the cord I started crying because of how wonderful it was. Then when I saw Dr. B she said she could tell I was anxious by my bp and said that if I want to come in every day for the next two weeks to listen to the heartbeat it's fine with her. I won't take up that offer, but she really helped calm me down.

Re: I lost it at the OB today-Nugget's great

  • I'm so glad Nugget looks perfect, healthy, and adorable!  That's got to be great for you to hear.  I know you will never really stop worrying (which is totally understandable), but knowing everything looks perfect should hopefully ease your mind a bit. 
  • That's awesome Maggie!  I'm glad they are monitoring you so careful and that you can get reassured on a regular basis.

  • Your post brought tears to my eyes.  You have every right to be nervous, anxious, happy, sad, etc...  I'm so very happy that things are going so well for you and Nugget.
