I take it out of my purse constantly. When I'm peeing, when I'm laying in bed, even when I'm at a red light! Woops!
I always find a finely-tuned question that I must seek an immediate answer to! Such as (my inner dialogue): "What DPO was my first U/S with last year's pg? What was the CTR length? Ok, good! I will do better than that this time, I know it." or "My HCG was 3488 on 21DPO. Last time it was only 3563 at 24DPO, so I'm in great shape!" I also jot down notes of my daily symptoms, like a short-hand diary. I obsessively compare this to last year's calendar, when I was pregnant also at this exact time (soon to become a m/c). I also write down the week and month mileposts and think about what I'll be doing when those times come and how far away it seems.
The most important date in my calendar is May 27, CD59, the corresponding CD that saw me in the hospital last year. If I can make it past that hurdle, then I can move on to "the end of the 1st trimester" hurdle!!
I have an app on my phone...okay not one...about 6 that i read at night. i honestly know what they are going to say pretty much word for word but i still like reading and praying everything with this pregnancy is okay!
I downloaded the babycenter app. I like it quite well, but am on the hunt for another...just so I can obsess :-) I wish there were a more naturally-minded one I could find. babycenter is all about doctors, and I never see doctors for anything. I adore my midwife!
