I had my first appointment on New Year's Eve. I was the first appointment of the morning and a complete nervous wreck. JD was working and unable to come with me. I just wanted to get the first appointment out of the way for some positive reassurance but now it probably would have been better to take someone with me or to have waited another week. The doctor was over 30 minutes late which didn't help with my nerves.
He finally came in and we did the ultrasound. He told me that the baby didn't look as far a long as they have me down. Maybe I am a week behind so he scheduled me for another ultrasound in 2 weeks. He told me to let him know if there was any bleeding. For someone that is already nervous and worried, hearing all of that was not reassuring or positive. It just made me worry that much more. My doctor is usually pretty good about not freaking me out.
So I came home and panicked. I pulled out Asher's baby book and compared ultrasounds. To me they look almost exact and this baby's ultrasound is a week earlier. Also, he told me the same thing with Asher, that I was a week behind and by the end of the pregnancy they realized my due date was wrong. Knowing both of those reassured me a bit. I'm still worried because it's hard not to worry that we will lose this baby too but I am very hopeful that this one gets to stay.
After I calmed myself down, I went on facebook and I saw this. I love it and is something I want to remember throughout this pregnancy.
