12 Weeks and You Must Chill!!

I have always been a thinker, a planner, and a worrier. Thinking is cool, planning is better, the worrying now that is an issue!

We went in for our NT scan today and everything looked great. Both babies had a heart rate of 159. At this first glance, nothing appeared to jump out to indicate down syndrome; which is great. I would really really prefer to skip the Amnio if I can get away with it.

We saw the babies again and they look great. Wiggling around like crazy, you would too, if somebody kept poking you like that!

I have decided that I need to chill and just enjoy where I am right now with this pregnancy. I feel really good after the ultrasound today, and we are at 12 weeks. I am just going to put the worrying on the back burner until there is officially something to worry about. That is my story and I am sticking to it!
Next Dr appointment in 4 weeks..........

What a Terrible Dream

I am going to warn you this dream is just awful; but it has woken me up the last few nights.

In the dream Bill and I go in for our NT scan. To us, everything looks fine and we are thrilled as we always are when we see the twins. The Dr then informs us that one of the babies heart has stopped somewhere along the line. This is the point where I wake up.

What is going on? I know that I am just worried about the scan on Tuesday. Maybe even a little more worried than I was willing to admit. This is ridiculous though. I think my subconscious and I need to have a little chat. Ney Ney on the Nightmares about the Bebe's-K?

Going to try and go back for a little nightmare free rest-I hope........

I am Graduated!!

I went in this morning for my last blood draw at the RE office. They just called and said that everything looks perfect! I will start to come off some of my medication on Saturday when I hit the 12 week mark.

I am kind of sad though. Everyone at the RE office is so nice I will miss going in there to see them every week. I do really like my OB also. It's just a different level of care between the two offices.

The next big hurdle is next Tuesday. We have out NT scan scheduled for that day. I am a little nervous about this one so keep your fingers crossed for us!

Pregnancy Brain

I had my first confirmed case of pregnancy brain yesterday.

Yesterday morning we had our first appointment with my regular OB. I had just been in two months ago for an appointment right before we started IVF. It was so nice to see how happy my Dr was to see us back so soon! We went ahead scheduled the NT scan for the 18th. I am hoping that turns out okay because the thought of an amnio scares me to death. Anything that has a possible risk of miscarriage feels extreme to me.

I went to work and had a fairly non eventful day. All day long I was looking forward to my massage last night. I left work and got stuck in rush hour traffic, which is pretty typical. Stopped at the store to pick up a mega millions ticket. I had to do it! The line was so long it felt like a 30 minute wait but I know it was probably just 10. Went home and crashed on the couch.

My phone rings, and my heart drops, it is my massage therapist. My massage that I was so excited about all day. Yep I forgot to go to it! Pregnancy Brain! Thankfully, she was so sweet about it and rescheduled me for tonight. I am certain that Pregnancy Brain cannot strike two nights in a row....
