– congrats on the awesome U/S and heartbeat!
Glad to hear you found a new hospital/doctor. Hope that you love them, but completely
understand how you’d feel anxious about it.
– I hope they’ve told you the brown spotting is nothing to worry about. I actually had bright red bleeding in a prior
pregnancy, for about 30 minutes, and I was convinced I was losing the
baby. By the time I got to the doctor’s
office, it had stopped and everything turned out fine. Baby is perfectly health. There was never any explanation for what
happened and I was told it was pretty normal, regardless of color (which is
different than what I feel like everyone tells you, but oh well). Love your mint gum trick. Whatever works! I used to get up and eat at 3AM because that
was the one time of day that I wasn’t throwing up. So I’d get up and eat a bowl of cereal at 3AM
and go back to bed. Sure enough, I’d
wake up nauseous a few hours later and hardly be able to eat the rest of the
day. I think I lived off Cheerios for
months. Hasn’t gotten that bad for me
yet this time.
– great U/S. So glad you got to see your
little one and hear her heartbeat!
– Made it back from my work conference in Vegas. Long flight.
Late nights. I’m just glad it’s
over. Appreciate all the kind words from
my last post. I have the same due date
as @Hott, and am seven weeks today. I
remember I freaked out last time when I couldn’t see a baby or heartbeat at the
first ultrasound, and everything still turned out fine. BUT, last time I got my first U/S early (around
5wks) and I thought that by waiting this time (6w2d) I’d get a glimpse of
the baby even if we didn’t see the heartbeat.
I have my next U/S at 7w4d (Thursday) so hopefully we’ll see something
then. My nausea also went away for a
while last week and that didn’t help alleviate my anxiety. I’m nauseous again today though, so who
knows. I’m trying to think positive
