I had my OB/GYN appointment yesterday and much to my relief, all went well not only with the appointment but also with Dr. R. Although I was reassured by Monday’s phone call from her nurse, I was still a little unsure if Dr. R was upset with what I had done (please see Friday’s post for full story). To help counteract any negative feelings, I had brought two fuzzy rainbow-coloured Easter bunny toys for her girls. I thought that if she was mad at me, it would be hard to stay mad at someone bearing fuzzy rainbow-coloured Easter bunnies. But she wasn’t mad at all and the Easter bunnies were appreciated.
I’m happy to finally, once and for all, put that stupid stunt behind me and get on with life. Trust me on this one, the lesson was learned.
The rest of the appointment went, very well actually. As usual, I had tons of questions and concerns but Dr. R put each and every one of them to rest. She even re-checked my cervix (manually) because I have been so concerned about it and said it felt long and closed. Let’s hope it stays that way! My cervix will also be re-checked at “the big ultrasound” on March 25th.
Oh my goodness I already so extremely nervous for “the big ultrasound”. 12 days and counting. Eeek!
Scrappy’s movements have continued to be erratic at best. I thought I felt some flutters yesterday but it’s so hard to tell. I’m finding it frustrating because I really, REALLY want to feel steady constant movements and even though I know better, I’m worried because we’re not there yet. A flutter or two every 2-3 days seems to be what I’m getting right now. I know Scrappy’s up to something in there because I’ve heard his beautiful heartbeat several times already but is he growing? At 17.5 weeks, why aren’t I feeling more? Am I being impatient here??
