Amazing. I can't believe I'm here. 14 w 4 d and still going strong.
I had my regular O.B. appointment today to check my placenta. Just like with E, the placenta is hanging out right over the cervix, so they're watching it to make sure it pulls up.
My B.P. 110/70 (awesome! - That's significant because I have a history of pregnancy hypertension, so they watch me just to make sure it stays in check.)
Baby (whose nickname may end up being "gumdrop") is measuring on target and moving around like crazy. Those of you who have dopplers know that sound that sounds like a record scratching when the baby moves around while you're listening. There's a lot of that going on in my house these days! I'm still using the doppler only a couple of times a week, but just enough to keep me sane.
I had to repeat some bloodwork today because my last lab work came back with a trace of Rh antibody. That is probably because I had a Rhogam shot already, but they're checking to make sure the level hasn't gone up.
I'm happy to report that my energy is slowly but surely returning, and my instances of morning sickness are few and far between. YAY second trimester!
Next step is my amnio in a couple of weeks. I think I'm more worried about scheduling a babysitter during it than actually having the amnio.
Finally, with regard to telling certain people about the pregnancy, thanks for all of your support. It hasn't been all rainbows and ponies. I know there is anger, but hopefully they can find peace and realize that the pregnancy isn't to spite them or to prove anything. It's simply to add another member to our family.
