6 weeks!!! I made it through the 30th bday party on Saturday without anyone knowing (sigh of relief!). I wanted to tell the girls so bad, but I just couldn't do it. I am still way to nervous. So I am hoping that when I see them on July 15th that I will tell them then. One of my friends husbands made SEVERAL comments about how I wasn't drinking at the party. I don't typically drink anyway, but he just kept asking and asking. He was very drunk, but I wanted to slap him upside the head. It is a good thing that I wasn't having difficulty getting pg.
The rest of the weekend was nice...I sat on the couch and did very little. Still trying to put the house back together from the shower since we are having Fathers Day at my house. I am trying to decide whether I should buy DH a gift for Fathers Day. I think I will ask the girls on the board, but maybe just a card for him. I do wish I could tell the family then...maybe my sister...who knows. We shall see what time brings!
I am excited to have my first appt tomorrow, even if it is with the nurse. I think it will make it a little more real to me. I wonder what they will do...I assume they will do a blood test. And then I am hopeful that in 2 weeks at my first drs visit that they will do an ultrasound. That would be really cool! Just to maybe try and see the h/b since it will probably be too early to hear it. At that point I think I will be much more at ease about everything. My pg friend offered to let me borrow her doppler when I am around 10 weeks so we can try and hear it, but she made a good point that it would probably drive me crazy if I can't find it. Well anyway, one step at a time, right? I am lucky my boss will be out tomorrow in case I need to come in a little late from my appt Bad employee.
I am really tired today. No real reason, I just couldn't get up this am. I feel like I have been dragging all day today. And I think the food aversions are beginning to kick in. I have been pretty picky the last few days. Not that much is appealing to me right now, except for what I feel my body is craving- fruits and veggies. So I have been eating salads and fruit today and yesterday. Not sure if those are really cravings? It isn't weird like pickles and ice cream... UGH I have a late volleyball game tonight. It doesn't start until 9pm and I won't leave until 10/10:30 and it is a 45 minute drive home. I am going to be exhausted. Not to mention my appt is at 8:30 tomorrow morning so I have to get up really early. I will be comatose tomorrow. Maybe I will go home and nap before the game tonight. That sounds like a good idea!
I should get back to work. I am suck a slacker but I would stay on here all day if I could!
Yesterday was my first appt! I met with the nurse at 8:30am and she did an 'intake'. Basically she asked me all these questions about me, my DH and our family history. Then went over a whole bunch of things: diet, things I can do, can't do, etc. So much information! She went over some tests we need to decide whether we want to take. And so much more. I haven't even opened the binder she gave me yet. The one sad thing she told me was that I shouldn't be playing volleyball. I am not quite sure what to do. I have a pg friend who is playing as well, and although her OB reluctantly lets her play, I have a feeling mine won't let me. Part of me says, why take the chance...that it might be bad for the baby or it could increase my chance of miscarriage. Why tempt fate when I don't have to. Part of me hates to leave my teammates high and dry mid way through the season when they can't get anyone else to play. Part of the problem is I also don't trust myself not to dive for the ball. I haven't landed on my belly since that time weeks ago, but if I trip or by accident dive, I could land on my belly. I guess I know what I need to do, I just don't want to. Especially since I won't be able to play again after this b/c of DH traveling schedule. But I knew that before I got pg.
I woke up this morning and didn't feel nausea. YEAH! However, I have been so tired lately. Not sure if it is b/c I have been having a couple of late nights this week and I am not getting enough sleep. Or I am tired b/c I am pg. I actually had to shut the door to my office today and yesterday to take a 30 min nap. Luckily my boss has been out. I have a feeling starting tomorrow that I may need to tell her I am pg and that is why I am closing my door to nap. Although I think it is way too early to tell her, I just don't think I can keep the secret much longer.
I also found out in my appt that my dr is 15 weeks pg. So she will be on maternity leave when I deliver. I really like her a lot. She is probably one of my favorite drs ever (and I have had a lot from moving around so much). She is so down to earth and easy to talk to. So I am really bummed she definitely won't be delivering me. I am wondering whether I should switch drs and go to a different practice that delivers in Boston. I could try and switch to my sisters doc, but that would require me to drive quite a distance for drs appts and into Boston to deliver. But then again, the hospital i go to would be far too. Oh decisions, decisions. I guess I will wait to talk to DH when he comes back from his trip.
Less than 2 weeks until my next appt with the dr. Unfortunately since it will only be 8 weeks, I will have to wait til my 12 week appt to hear the h/b. I am bummed, but not much I can do. Oh it is early but I can tell it is almost time for bed...I am getting tired already!
