We got to meet Mel today!! I had my 6 week scan. We were able to see that Mel is in the right spot and has a heartbeat. They are saying that I am 5weeks 4 days. But I still trust my dates more than theirs!
I was not very happy with my treatment at the u/s today, it was done a private clinic. The guy that did the scan was very rough and really rude! He even refused to print me a picture so I have not a thing to share with my friends and family.
This weeks belly pic 6 weeks 2days.
I have been so super tired. The nausea ect has prety much disapeared.
I was so so tired last night, but I could not sleep properly. I also had the strangest dreams. One of them involved being admitted to the Maternity unit to have my baby and I was ment to have a private room but suddenly I had a room mate who was going through infertility surgery. She was so nasty to me. I had also had to ring home becuase I had forgotten my toiletries bag and needed to tie my hair up with a metal free hair tie. I think I was going in for a c-section or possibly an induction.... None the less it was weird, but did not end as I was woken up.
Today I met my OB for the first time.
I really like him, he has his own quircky way, even though he seems so straight laced. Every thing was basicly medical history and working out what to do with my Insulin Resistance.
I have been told to stop my Metformin and watch my diet and sugar levels religously.
I did get another scan.
On friday I measured 6 weeks 6 days, which I thought was about 4 days behind.
Today I measured 8 weeks 1 day, Which puts me 1-2 days of what my origional dates.
so some how I lost a week... But either way I still pretty happy!
I will get my next scan in 4 weeks (which will be the NT one) and I see my OB again then. So far every thing is on track.
My Dr and I both agree that I am indeed 8 weeks 1 day and should stick by these dates becuase I know when Mel was concieved. So I am for now sticking with the 8th October.
My syptoms are varing each day. I have one consistant thing happening, I am super tired, but when I am extra super tired George decides to have a bad night and keep waking me at odd hours. I swear this cat is training me for a new born! (By waking me, we are talking a 7 & 1/2kg cat jumping on the bed and ove the top of you. Walking up between me and DH and meowing until he get attention. Or he claws at some thing and than meows at himself in the big new mirrors!!
Opps it has been awhile since I wrote in here. (but I read every ones elses each day )
Not much has been happening here but I will see what I can remember of the little things....
W had John's B'day on Monday. Dinner was fantastic. We went to a local Italian resturuant.
Tuesday I had my first antenatal hydrotherapy session. I really like it. It is a great way to get moving without stressing me or bub out. I did discove that I am losing my waist line already
Here are my latest belly pics...
Had a very embarassing m/s moment on Friday afternoon. Was in the City with DH. We were just entering the HUGE out door mall when I started gaging. Before I knew it I was fertilising the garden bed (thankfully they are about chest hight for me!). I tried getting John to get me a bottle of water from one of the many 7/11's in the city. But he was not quick enough to get the hint.
Here is my 9 week pic. You can definately see the change now.
I am 11 weeks already!! OMG where did the last 7 weeks go!
I have been feeling really tired but I think that has something to do with lack of sleep! I have had several late nights which has been tough to deal with but catching up on sleep is very hard. I am starting to notice that my clothes are getting snugger and snugger and with the weather cooling off I am hoping that my super "fat" clothes will fit me for a while yet.
I have been struggling with pain management. But I am unsure as to when I call for help. My arthritis seems to be getting worse at the moment. Remission does not look like it is going to happen for me any time soon, if at all. But I am still really hopefull that it will happen.
Here is my 10 week belly pic.
As you can see I had my NT scan today. All went well except that bub decided to go shy when the wand started to hurt me. (both over the tummy and internally) So I get another scan in two weeks time.
I also had my Ob appointment. It did not go as I hoped. But I think in the long run things will work out. Although I have a horrible feeling that I will be pushed into a c-section, but I will fight it. He knows that I will only have one in an emergancy.
Well my athritis has been getting worse again. So I will start back on the plaquinel again tonight. Honestly I don't think I should have stopped it.
