No Ultrasound Today

I decided to be brave and canceled today's appointment.

So far, I haven't been too freaked out. I felt lots of round ligament pains yesterday, which always makes me feel better. I told R that Kiddo must be going through a growth spurt. I've had hardly any today, but they seem to occur a lot one day, then ease up for the next few days, so I'm not panicked about it.

Also, I'm still having the fatigue. I slept 9-10 hours both days over the weekend, and I still needed two naps on Saturday and one on Sunday. I know the fatigue is supposed to ease up around this time, but I'll be fine with it if it sticks around.

The last PIO shot was on Sunday. My backside is rejoicing. Tomorrow is the next blood test to check the levels - hopefully it will be good news. My chest seems less sore, but it's grown about an inch during the last three or four days according to the tape measure, so hopefully that's another good sign.

66 hours to go until the next ultrasound. Not that I'm counting or anything...

You are doing great! I think a lot of my symptoms started going away between 10w (with DD) and 13 weeks (this time)...and don't be freaked out if they all go away for the second trimester. Its scary but so cool...b/c you are in the next phase:-) Congrats on feeling better about things! This time, I am also counting down the hours to my next u/s...its hard to tell when they are moving if one is moving or both are, so I really really need the reassurance:-) The worry never really stops! Looking forward to an update!

I hope you are as proud of you as I am. Cancelling this appointment is a huge step. You're learning to enjoy your pregnancy. I wish I had that! I'm still freaked all the time. I hope you continue to have a happy and healthy pregnancy....keep us posted!

As always keeping you in my thoughts and prayers!

Hooray for surviving the no ultrasound! You are doing great and can I say how jealous I am of all that sleep :) But also super happy for you that you 1) NEED it and 2) are getting it!

Glad to hear you are feeling more confident! This is good!

As for the movie, I wonder how I missed I.Q. Some of the new releases are just so dumb!
