10 weeks. 2 to go before the first trimester is done.
Things have been flip floppy in terms of symptoms. Somedays I am so nauseous I could cry or do cry, otherdays I feel ok just really tiered and with achy breasts. I think I have only lost weight to date but my pants are getting much tighter in the waist.
In terms of prenatal care, there is nothing happening at this stage, I see my OB again on July 14th, at 11.5 weeks, and she already put in my refferal for the specialist care at the hospital so I should be meeting with her in the next couple of weeks and she will do my dating ultrasound. Then we will discuss, I imagine the cursed Heparin. So far I am just taking aspirin each day and all seem’s well, she had mentioned she would recomend I take it in my second and third trimester, plus 6 weeks post partum, however, now it’s an open discussion since a blood clot was ruled out as Evan’s cause of death. Now they are saying it would be strictly preventative or ‘just in case’ type thing, I don’t know what to think, it seems like a big ‘just in case’ in both directions. Stillbirth is a major ‘just in case’, but so is taking such an altering drug everyday for 6 months if it’s not really necessary. You know aspirin I am cool with, but taking a shot of a blood thinner, that is something I want to make sure I need to do.
Anyways, in 10 more weeks max we should find out gender. Weee 🙂 However, the consensus seems to be girl, Dave agrees. I don’t mind at all, either way I am right as rain if the baby lives.
