I hd my appointment today and it went great...other than getting sick while waiting. LOL. The U/S tech tried finding baby via the abdomen but all she could see was the 'black hole' of my uterus. I kinda freaked a bit at that point, but she switched to transvaginal and there was *Thor* (Jackson named the baby Thor...lol) with his/her beautiful beating heart! Heart rate was 138 and and measured 6w6d. One day younger than edd by LMP. We will keep the due date the same though since its only one day. The Dr did find a subchorionc bleed which I had with my DS but she said its nothing to worry about and that I might experience some spotting as it clears up. I will go back in 2 weeks for a repeat U/S to check on the peanut again. Then 2 weeks after that I will do the NTS(?) testing. I will have to do an early glucose test because I am 'obese' based on BMI, which sucks, but its ok. I actually like the orange drink...LOL Plus I lost 50 lbs right before I got pregnant and I'm healthier now than I was before with my DS & my BP has been PERFECT each time I've gone in this time whereas it was high my whole pg with DS.
I absolutely LOVE my midwife! She was with me when I was pregnant with my DS, but she was on vacation when I had him. She has switched practices twice since then and I am so glad I found her again! She gave me a HUGE hug and totally put me at ease again and really got me excited about the next 7+ months. I am so thankful I have her!!!
LOL "Thor" ... so cute!! Glad you got to see the baby and that s/he is doing well! It's awesome that you lost all that weight and are healthier now! I wonder if I'll have to go for an early GTT 'cause I put back on all my baby weight from my first two and have always failed the hour GTT with both of them. I'll have to ask my doc in a few weeks! =D
Anyway, hooray that you found your midwife and can start seeing her!! All around a great day! =D
Thank you so much to Typical Vampire for my awesome siggie!!
