Mild Panic

Last night, when I was doing my 3rd dose of End O_metrin of the day, the applicator came out with bright red blood, a moderate amount. Needless to say, I got lots of good rest last night... NOT!

I waited until this morning and called the OB office. Today is surgery day, wouldn't you know it, so it would take a little bit before they got back to me. (enter the Jeopardy theme)

She called back and wanted me to go to the fancy place for an ultrasound. So off I went. They worked me in, which I looked like the only person under the age of 80 in there anyway.

Good news is that Sticky is okay, but they couldn't find any cause for the bleeding. Hmmm But as long as Sticky is okay, I guess I'm okay. So here's the good part...

I heard the heartbeat for the first time. It was amazing! Then I got to see Sticky and his jazzercise routine, pretty impressive. I thought the first time we saw the routine, it was because of the cup of coffee I had that morning. But I haven't had any caffeine today, so my kid is a spaz already! I saw crunches, lunges, hokey pokey, and the cutest, spreaded out hand you ever saw. I saw on his/her right hand, 5 cutesie lil fingers. And the definition on the heart is amazing! The heartbeat is 163 beats per minute, which is awesome since this is the first time anyone has ever told me that information before. They changed my gestational age/due date again too. First, if I go by my FET time, I'm due Oct 18 and I'm 12w 1 day. Then if I go by my LMP I'm due Oct 15 and 12w 3 days. But she said I'm measuring 12w 6 days and due Oct 13. WHOA! I don't care, as long as Sticky is healthy, they can tell me whatever else. I'm just happy that the bleeding wasn't any more serious. I remember pretty early on the NP at the RE telling me that I was a couple days ahead. So we shall see...
I go to the big University hospital tomorrow for my NT test. I'm excited, Angel gets to take me. We are going to stop by the maternity store and get me some FAT PANTS. I keep saying it, but today is absolutely THE LAST DAY for regular pants. We have to go to the big city for Mommy type stores. So off we shall go. Will report on the goings on when I can.

Yikes--that had to be terrifying! I'm so glad Sticky is okay, even if s/he is a bit of a spaz. We love him/her regardless!

Ohhh...maternity pants! One of the best parts about being knocked up. If you're looking for jeans, try some that have the big ol' stretchy belly band that goes up to your chest. LOVE them.

Good luck!

So glad that all is well with you and Sticky! I'm sure that was a scary few hours for you.

Happy to hear it was nothing and that the baby is okay. So cool that you got to see him/her jazzercizing! Hope you can find some pants that function for work!

I hope your shopping trip was a success and you good results from the NT. I think I'm in the last few weeks of wearing my regular clothes...hopefully we're heading to the "big city" in a couple of weeks to go clothes shopping for me.

Glad things are going well
