I have been literally counting the days until my OB appointment on Monday. Every day, all day, I just think- only _ _ more days until I can see the doc and get reassured everything is ok. I am so excited to be almost out of the first trimester!
A friend on facebook is sending me her old doppler. She said it worked even better than the one in her doc office. I’m thrilled to get that and hope it will ease some of the constant nagging fear.
Everyone keeps telling me to relax and enjoy my pregnancy, but between the daily vomiting and nerve wracking time between appointments, I haven’t had a chance to just sit back and enjoy it. Hoping my time is coming soon! The sicky feeling is getting less, but then if a day goes by that I don’t throw up I get worried! WTH? I can’t wait for that doppler to get here so I can have some other proof things are progressing other than my head in the toilet.
Other than that I am sporting a pretty good bump. I was trying to plan my Halloween costume according to how big I will be and after looking at a million bump pics, I realize there is no general size. People are all over the place! I was checking the 16 week pics and one lady looked barely bloated (she was pretty muscular) and some people looked 6 months pregnant. So who knows what this belly will look like by then. I’ve been taking a pic every 2 weeks so my new pic will be tonight!
