. . . but I'll try to keep it brief.
After my last post, I continued to have cramping and spotting. I called my doctor's office and was told to call back in a week if it continued. I was good for a few days, but it came back. We were concerned, but I knew it did not warrant a hospital trip, so I waited a few more days before calling back. They scheduled me that day (12/5), but it was during my work hours, so I had to tell my manager. I was not planning on telling anyone until I was in my 2nd trimester (and started showing), so I was not happy about that; she promised not to tell anyone, so hopefully she will stay true to her word. Long story short, I got the time off, The Mr. and I went together, and we got to see our little one (LO) and its racing heart! I estimated I was about 7w2d, but LO measured 6w3-4d, giving us and EDD of 7/26 or 7/27/12, instead of 7/21-7/23/12 like I thought. :-(
I was supposed to have my first prenatal appointment 12/14, but they rescheduled it to 12/20 during work hours. We went and got to see our dancing LO again. We gained a lot of helpful information (including the very likely possibility of a C-section). I was also given the delightful task of a 24 hour urine collection (due to my previous history of hypertension). We scheduled the NT Scan (1/18), and I will have to go in every two weeks for a blood pressure check. Joy!
