So much to tell! I'm sucking at this journaling thing lately. Everything's just been so hectic!
First off, we had another great appointment the day after my last entry. The Bug's heartbeat was 178 and everything looked great. So great, in fact, that we graduated from our RE's office and moved on to my regular OB. It makes me nervous to be just another pregnant lady, but ultimately it's a good thing.
I've gone off the progesterone and estrogen, with my last day being last Saturday. I was nervous about this, too. In the back of my mind, I thought the progesterone was keeping me pregnant. I've had a few mild cramps and headaches since Sunday, but it's been 72 hours since my last dose and I think I'm doing okay!
This weekend, we get to tell your Aunt Sabrina and the rest of your dad's family about The Bug. But I have to wait and tell my side of the extended family for another two weeks when I go to Michigan. I really can't wait for all of this to be out in the open. But by the same token, I'm not sure how I handle being the center of attention. Can't have it both ways, though. :)
Right now, we're trying to decide whether or not to do the NT (nuchal translucency) scan. This routine ultrasound would give us a heads if the Bug has any major birth defects. The reason your father and I are debating is due to my anxiety. We're afraid if there's a) anything wrong or b) we get a false positive, that I'll obsess over it for the rest of the pregnancy. Not sure what's going to happen. If we do decide to do it, I'll have another pic to show off for the next entry.
Well, I should be off to bed. My pregnancy books tell me I need more sleep, but I haven't been able to adhere to that too well. Especially since I'm up 1-2 times a night to pee. Sleep and I have a love/hate relationship right now. Hopefully that will get better as time goes on.
Take care and I love you.
