I am 14 weeks today! officially second trimester. I'm going to celebrate by buying maternity pants Even my roomiest ones are not cutting it anymore, and the Bella Band is a hassle.
It was actually a really hard week- Nov 8 was the anniversary of the D&C from my first loss. Plus, I went from WEEKLY ultrasounds with the RE... to monthly visits with my OB. I saw her on Oct 31, then had my NT scan on 11/4, but that was almost 2 weeks. I know it sounds dramatic but it was a big change. That combined with the angelversary, milestone, learning the gender, and first trimester symptoms lessening- I lost it this week.
Yesterday I had a meltdown and called my OB's office- there's no way I was going to make it until my next appt Nov 27 without knowing baby is okay. They were so sweet- told me I could come in, and the dr on call would do a doppler check. So I did go in, and lo and behold my OB herself was in (she's usually not on Fridays) and she gave me an ultrasound! It was AWESOME to see my baby girl! She loves to move! Crossing and uncrossing her little legs, stretching her arms overhead. I feel so, so much better.
I'm also going to resume visits with the therapist I was seeing after my second loss and through my third. I really liked her and think I can benefit from finding more ways to manage my anxiety.
Congrats on that milestone! I'm sorry you were having a rough week with your angelversary. That's always a hard time. Real nice that you got to have an ultrasound to reassure you that your babe is doing well.
Yay for your second trimester. I'm so sorry that you had a hard week and I'm glad that you are going back to see your therapist.
it also sounds like you have a great dr. Glad you got to see baby girl moving around everywhere. My visits have been longer in between them also lately and I know how hard it can be from going all the time to less often. Glad you have an understanding dr.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
