I'll try to keep this short, it is 3:45 am afterall.

I've been feeling movement for a little over a week now. I've always felt it early anyway, so the 10th week doesn't surprise me. I don't care what docs say... it is possible. Even though I called my OB today and she told me it was impossible to feel consistent movement before 16 weeks... UHM, WHAT!? Was I not the one that told you I felt it every.single.day. until I was 14w3d during my last pregnancy? And guess what day growth stopped! She figured out I knew what I was talking about based on that alone. Ugh. I am not too thrilled with her right now. Anyway, I've been having a lot of issues with being dizzy, losing consciousness, feeling weak, etc. I was in the ER last week and they caught my BP dropping quite a few times. One time it was 101/72, but otherwise it was giving readings like 85/56, 86/49, 87/43... it was pretty awful and the ER doc was concerned. I've dealt all week with feeling like garbage. Today, after not feeling any movement, and having cramping, I decided to go back to the ER. I was having issues with breathing and my heart was palpitating. I think the anxiety from the cramping was making my nerves and heart go wonky. So they did another full panel of bloodwork and everything came back normal. I did find the heartbeat with the doppler (the nurse was nice enough to let me try it on my own). But the ER doc wanted me to do any u/s anyway.

Let me back up and say that as of now, nobody is interested in changing my EDD. My LMP was 1/28, which gives me an EDD of 11/4. I *know* I O'd on 2/8, which gives me 11/1. I measured exactly spot on with my math until last week. At 10w3d (mine), 10w (LMP) I measured 10w6d. They still didn't care much. So tonight, the lady got 4 solid measurements, not one was less than 12w1d. She kept exclaiming how perfectly straight the baby was and she had never gotten such good positions for measurements. So my math puts me at 11w3d, LMP puts me at 11w and now I get 12w1d?! Yeah, something's gonna change here.

Anyway, this tech was awesome. She looked between the legs after I explained the Angle of the Dangle theory, she did a detailed look at the position of the placenta since there are new theories about its placement and gender, etc. Then she said "I know you won't mind. I just want to get another look. It's playtime!" And she flipped over to the 3D!!! "I totally don't know if I'm allowed to do this, but I'm not recording it, I just want to see for myself and I know you'd never turn this down!"

I was like "Lady, I want to marry you!" LOL!!!

We got some great pics. I've never got more than 2 or 3 prints from either a doc or an ER visit. She gave me 10 or 11!

Ultimately, there is no diagnosis. I just need to take it easy and call my OB on Monday. Well, I see the peri on Friday anyway, I may just call and see if they can bump me up a few days.

For your viewing pleasure!!! Here are some shots of Bug, and my 11 week belly shot! Thanks for reading and sorry it got long anyway. And sorry about the quality of the pics, I haven't scanned them yet... just pics from my phone.

Here's a great shot of the foot!

And my absolute favorite!!! <3

<--- again!

I hope the weakness and dizziness goes away on its own. I bet its scary how low your blood pressure was and feeling so bad. I'm glad you got an u/s to ease your mind. Sounds like you got the best tech in the world. Those 3D pics are so cute, especially that tiny bum.
