A Fuzzy Rainbow-Coloured Easter Bunny Peace Offering

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??

You are being impatient. :o) Although I am sure someone will contradict me. :o) I strated feeling random flutters about 17 weeks or so.

I am a little over 20 weeks along and I just started feeling her EVERYDAY. I had a small poochy-pooch before I got pregnant that probably doesn't help. My doc said that 19-20 weeks is average though.

Hang in there! Sooner or later Scrappy will be kicking your bladder! :o)

Much love!!!

Scrappy is kicking ass and taking names in there!!!! Aren't you dying to know if it's Mr or Miss Scrappy?!?!?! Good Lord, I'd be stir crazy with wonder.
*hugs*

People feel things at different times - but i was told by my Dr's that the movements should not be constant until towards the end of the 2nd trimester. I know for me that feeling ANY movement that I did not feel pre-pregnancy eased my mind. It will get easier - so I'm told!

I felt nothing-- not even a flutter-- until 22.5 weeks. Doc said that was w/in the normal range.

I know you don't want to hear this, but...17 weeks is still pretty early. I didn't start feeling consistent movement until week 19-20, and even then the only thing that is consistent is that it happens through the day, when is another story.

Trust me when I tell you, one day you will just start to feel the baby consistently. It will happen. Soon. Hang in there! :)
