I'm beginning to really dread going to appointments. Just thought I'd rant a little.
I had a pap today and my nurse practitioner brought in a doppler with her, I was super excited because even though I heard the heart beat at 7wks (even if it was only for a few seconds via internal u/s) I hadn't gotten a rate for it. I figured 11 almost 12 weeks there's got to be a good hb by now right? Apparently wrong. She couldn't find one and looked super worried, she kept saying "I know I felt that you have a big uterus..." and after 5 minutes of searching she just decided to go get the portable u/s machine and left the room. I almost broke into tears thinking the worst, after a few minutes she came back with the machine and after only a minute of searching had the baby on the screen. The baby was kicking away and did have a heartbeat (though I only got to see it not hear it), but it seems like every appointment I go to is almost a mini crisis. I was happy to see that eveything was ok and the baby actually looked like a baby now. Also the baby is on the left side of my uterus and that's where I've been feeling "movement" so I guess the movement is really the baby and not something else. I know I need to just relax and realize that this is happening and everything will be fine but it's hard. They did move my EDD up by a few days from the 29th to the 27th but I know when I O'd (because it was via trigger shot) so I'm sticking with 11/29.
On my way home, I was stopped at a stop sign with a cattle truck in front of me. They were pulled out too far and had to back up so another truck could turn down the road we were on. I guess the driver didn't see my car because he backed right into me. It was super scary, I tried to put my car in reverse and slammed on my horn so hopefully he would hear me at least but I wasn't fast enough and now my 2008 Elantra is busted up.
I had a sad stressful day.
