The night before I had some strange, sharp twinges in my belly (uterus?) but they subsided when I laid down and fell asleep.
Still, they worried me.
Anyways, I get to work all happy and fine... the woman whose place I took at my new school is also pregnant, which I find cute and funny. I found out that she, terribly, had a miscarriage over the weekend at 9 weeks. Later, I find out that coworker's sister who is also pregnant is having issues w/ baby's heartbeat.
Naturally this sets me into a panicked frenzy and I text DH to call OB and see if they can please let me come hear HB on doppler.
Because my OB is amazing they let me come in RIGHT after school... And baby was doing fine, they found the HB much quicker this time (16 weeks) than they did at 14 weeks... Baby has HB of 149.
I cried harder when I heard that sound than I have at all ultrasounds put together.
I am so grateful that Baby is well, but will this fear please subside...
Many thanks to Mom2*Lauryn*Jacob* for my beautiful siggy.
The fear never really goes away completely, but I think the period between the NT scan/12 week check up for the heartbeat and the 20 week anatomy scan are really, really hard. Especially if you are in a due date club, because the women a head of you are starting to feel movement and the ones behind you are getting to see their little ones for reassurance.
For me, after I could feel movement regularly it was a little better, though I still have freak out moments if I don't feel him for too long!
I hope you feel movement soon - it really does help. (then you can obsess over not feeling it - or kick counts lol - once they're born - you can keep checking if they are breathing heeheehee) I still catch myself checking the TP. but you will feel better slowly. (((hugs)))
Thank you Kiliki for my first beautiful Siggie!
