I had my first appt yesterday and I talked to my midwife (heather) about the stabbing pain and lack of symptoms I have been dealing with. She wasn't worried about the pain since it's not constant and explained that there is a big cyst where I ovulated from that is currently acting as the placenta while the placenta builds (duno why I didn't even think of that) but since she has ultrasound privlidges, she grabbed the abdominal machine (The OB in the clinic was using the transvaginal one) and took a peek...she put the wand in the right spot...right on little Bebo whose heart was beating away in there!


She felt my uterus and cervix - she said the uterus is consistent with my dates (based on my last period I would be almost 11w, based on charting I am roughly 7w) but is sending me for a dating u/s on 9/20 for insurance purposes ... apparently my bcbs plan now REQUIRES a dating ultrasound in order to cover prenatal care. (I called my insurance after and they confirmed it..I think that's so strange!)


anyway, heather and i talked a lot about NOT getting induced this time and things I can do to avoid it. I have lost 7lb from my appt in August but I have also been terribly sick and have no appetite..I live off ice waterr and peanut butter toast but today my BP was good (120/60) and I had no protein in my urine. I really love the new clinic I am going to (I'm delivering at a different hospital this time, its brand new and has tubs in all the rooms instead of just 4 of them, and Heather is working on making an official water birth protocol - the protocol right now is that "we cant make a woman get out of the tub" )


I go back for my next appt Oct 8th! doesn't seem too far away from some reason!


I can't believe I get to do this again

I can't lie...I am so relieved. for some reason I was very worried about this pregnancy. I still am, obviously - I don't think you ever stop worrying but I do have some ease since the little heart was beating so fast, and I know the risks decrease significantly once you see the HB.
