So… Im 13 weeks, still feeling the same- emotional, hungry, and sick, but its ok, its becoming normal. I had an ultrasound at the specialists office on Tuesday, it took all day (4 hours) waiting in the waiting room (UGH). The baby was STUBBORN, he/she would not turn the way the tech needed him/her to turn. We needed to see certain things like fluid on the back of the head and other measurements but the baby did not think that was important. There was jumping and turning and all kinds of silliness. The tech said, if you want to know what it is… it looks flat down there lol…. *sigh … she still said- Its so early, dont count on anything till the next appt (Aug. 7th)…. That will be the full fetal scan.
The genetic counselor said that I will see them regularly like my OB, once every 4 weeks until my last trimester. I will see them anywhere from 1-2 weeks and will have a different test done at every visit. For example: non-stress test, bio-fetal exam, fetal echocardiogram…. its so overwhelming. I have been getting WAY more anxiety now that Im rushing into my second trimester, and with every ultrasound, there is a TON of growth. The bigger the baby, the scarier it is.
A lot seems to be going on, baby, school, need for some space at home, Steven and I working 2 different shifts. I had such a great time on the 3rd and 4th. Steven and I had off and we just spent the days together (minus my all day doctor appt). On the 4th we went fishing from 12-9pm and it was SO MUCH FUN. By the way- I caught the most. (4 catfish, 8 trout, 4 snapper). Steven was shark fishing and they got a few bites but never got it in.
anyways, I now have to work like 75 hours between now and next weekend with only Tuesday off. It never used to be a problem but its difficult lately because I feel sooo unmotivated. I want to clean my house so bad and organize things and I have no motivation because 1.theres not space to put anything where we are … and 2. I have a human being sucking up all of my energy. … Here’s a picture of that human
I have another appointment with my regular OB on the 12th, next Thursday.
