and guess what.....I'm pg!

It was just an appt with the nurse, and I have delivered with this practice before, so it was a pretty simple appt. They took urine, blood, weight and blood pressure, then we sat down and talked about future appts and u/s and testing they would like to do.

They want to do an u/s today at 3:30 to see how far along I am and to see if the pregnancy going OK. I am pretty nervous about it. More so than I thought I would be. If I am just 6 weeks there is a chance we will not see a heartbeat and that thought is scary. If I am further along, then I missed alot of opportunity to watch what I ate and to take prenatals. I am hoping that the u/s will be a great time to bond with this lo, but u/s make me sooo scared.

They also want to do additional testing this time around. I need to do more research into it, but it is an expansion of the Quad test, that is supposed to be more accurate. You take blood around 10-12 weeks (another reason for the u/s today), and then again at 16-20 weeks. The two draws combined are supposed to give you better results with less false positives.

Please cross your fingers/pray/send out good vibes that our u/s today will be great.

Yay! At least you don't have very long to get worked up and anxious over an ultrasound! I can't wait for your update. And I don't think you should worry too much about things if you are further along, your little one will be perfect!

Thanks for the reassurance Kelly. I'm trying to keep calm today. 1/2 the time I still can't beleive the I am pregnant. When I get tired or sick, then I'm like OK - This pg is for real, but other times, I'm just in disbelief. I'm hoping the u/s today will make the pregnancy more "real" for me.

Seeing that little h/b will certainly help though!
