OB Ultrasound was on Friday and everything looked “perfect”! And there is only ONE! I was officially discharged from the RE Office and set free to the real world/fertile land at the OB Office. I called to make an appointment today and the receptionist told me that they might not do an ultrasound at the 2nd appt. since I just had one at 7 weeks. Umm, excuse me???? Does she realize who she is talking to? She obviously has no idea what is on my reproductive resume, or that I am “accustomed” to regular ultrasounds.. or that I am consumed with fear that I will lose this pregnancy. This may be a deal breaker, seriously. If they do not want to do one at 10 weeks I just might have to go to another OB.
As I write I am feeling a wave of nausea, which gives me such peace of mind. I had been feeling SO incredibly sick over the past couple weeks and then woke up the other day feeling perfectly fine. Loss of symptoms = loss of pregnancy, so of course I’ve been panicking.
I think I may be more nervous with this pregnancy than with my first. It just feels too good to be true. Once you consider yourself “infertile”, it is hard to imagine that you would be so lucky to have 2 successful pregnancies and 2 healthy babies.
It doesnt help that I have been reading about Bethany Frankel’s recent miscarriage at 8 weeks, AFTER they had a normal ultrasound. ?!?
I know, I really just need to relax!
Yay for a heartbeat! Stupid OB nurses/offices just don’t get that transfers from the RE’s office need extra love for so many many reasons. I feel you on this.
You might need to check with your OB or insurance. Many times, once you transfer to OB land, you don’t get all those extra monitoring that we would like given our past history. I try to go under the assumption, no news is good news. Super hard with our history (I’ve had 3 miscarriages trying for baby #2), but what else can we do, right?
Best wishes to you for your little sticky bean to stick around for the next 9 months!
