I am feeling pretty good now, my m/s is finally starting to ease up after 12 long weeks. I am a little nervous though because I just got the results back from my NT/Triple screen test and the nurse says that everything looks normal and within normal ranges, but the bloodwork gave me a ratio for Down's as 1:702 which she says is a little high for someone my age. In my heart I know everything is fine, but its hard not to get a little scared when you hear them say "everything looks normal but...". They want me to come in for a special u/s to make sure everything is alright. I am totally kicking myself now for deciding to get this genetic testing done.
Things with my family are doing better, my dad has accepted the situation and is starting to prepare for baby. My mom hasn't yelled at me or said anything negative for 2 days now so I hope this means she is starting to come around slowly but surely. I hope she will get to the point where she will acknowledge it or at least be able to look at u/s pictures and show some sort of emotion (and maybe call it something other than "fetus" lol).
Well, I haven't been around much lately...sorry! As the date gets closer the shorter the days seem.
I'm 29 weeks tomorrow and doing fabulously!! Baby Jack is getting bigger by the minute and I'm convinced he's going to be a helluva football player! I'm a little tired (and I'm sure grouchy) but I feel really good for the most part. The belly is so cool, I forgot how much I love to have a round tummy!
I've been doing good other than it's so hot outside I don't want to take my dog on her normal walks so she's been driving me crazy!
Had my first doctor's appointment today. I got to hear the heartbeat!! The doctor thinks I'm further along (12 weeks) and he's confirm that with my screening u/s on Monday. February seems like a long ways off sometimes but then other times not long enough.
