First prenatal appointment

Had my first official prenatal appointment today.
HCG levels 2 weeks ago were 650 which put me squarely in the 5ish weeks category, supporting my claim of being 7 weeks now.
Blood pressure was normal.
Weight was what it was, I lost a couple of pounds, I knew that, not eating as  much and eating mostly vegetables.
They took 6 viles of my blood and did a pap, blah! and then said next time she see’s me, in a month, we will be able to hear the baby’s heartbeat on the dopler πŸ™‚
Also she did the referal to the hospital Peri I will also be working with to book my dating ultrasound, do a repeat lupus anticoagulant test and based on that decide if we will in fact go ahead with the heparin. (It was never a question before Evan’s autopsy ruled out blood clots or insufficient placenta as the cause of death, now everyone is second guessing themselves)

I just can’t wait until my first ultrasound so I can see the littun and relax a tad, enough to go public anyhow.

All in all things were as good as they can be this early along. Now I am exausted and my bed is calling my name. I just can’t get enough sleep these days.

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. Weeeeee so exciting!!!!!!!!!!

  2. (((((((((((((((((((((((belly blessings))))))))))))))))))))))
    Jaime, it’s so normal to worry, a lot, especially if you’ve had a baby-loss AND then a harder time TTC. Having faith is a good goal, don’t get me wrong, but know this: you are not alone and you will be supported No Matter What. I know other mamas will back me up on this, and maybe have better suggestions for how to calm down…
    My assvice is: let yourself worry for a little while every day, then after a bit, try to relax…

  3. Wooo! Glad it went well πŸ˜€
    I can’t wait to see the little babysac either πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    • I won’t likely get any pictures..They are cheap here and don’t do pics 😦
      Maria, I worry soooo much, I don’t say it in the blog but every little thing freaks me out, I don’t know who I will keep from losing my mind. My hands were shaking when I looked at my HCG level out of fear it wasn’t the right number or something. I need to stop this and just have faith…

      • oh mama. need to respond with both hands, i a few. might just email you directly. util then jst know i totally grapled with tat coflict hardcore, will share wih you in a mo’.
        love you ❀

      • haha your cute and thanks :)however, I can’t fully understand what you were typing haha you missed alot of letters in there πŸ™‚

      • It’s SO hard not to panic, when you’ve lost a baby. I think those feelings are normal, and I want to tell you it will get better, but … honestly, for those of us (like you and I) who are natural worriers, there is ALWAYS something to worry about, even after the baby is born! πŸ˜‰ But as you said, you have to have faith, and find healthy ways to channel those thoughts and that energy.
        *hugs tightly and supportively*

      • Thank you.
        I can only imagine you were thinking the same things when pregnant after your loss, like OMG is everything ok.
        It’s so hard to know before you feel baby moving if there is anything going on in there. Just nausea and such but still, hold breath and pray.

      • just want to say I can relate Jamie. I worry when taking a nap the baby has died while I was napping, so I have to press on my stomach to make him move. It sucks. I worry that every movement i feel is my last.

      • Wow!
        It’s all so hard, it’s like, yeay, I am pregnant yeay.
        OMG OMG please baby don’t die, please don’t die.
        I feel schitzophrenic.

      • I know I will be like that too.
        Knock me out and wake me in January πŸ™‚ oh, it’s so damn hard, I try and try to be optomistic.
        I at least try to balance each negative thought with an optomisitc thought.

      • I try! you know I am the same way. Omg I’m pregnant, but baby please don’t die. then I ask what the hell was I thinkin getting pregnant again after such a tragedy.But I pray this all ends good.
