Follow up from ER visit

For some reason I was not worried at all. Not in the slightest. So C and I go to the RE's and the RN comes in and starts the scan and as soon as I saw Sweet Pea I said " thats a big baby!" RN said "Sure is and looking great. Right on track!" We got our photo and started talking about the NT scan and blood work etc. We go in next Thursday for our Prenatal Apt, which is a group meeting for 2 hours. Then on the 31st of this month we have our last RE apt. Im a bit sad about it but I know its time to move on and let them help another couples dream come true.

Tonight we are going to look for a baby name book and other books at Borders. I will post a photo of Sweet Pea later.

Update on Us...

We had our second u/s this past Monday and all looked amazing!

and then last night happened..

C left for work before 1am and I was in bed. Not long after she left I had 1 cramp and then it stopped. I thought nothing and turned to get comfortable in bed and I felt a gush. I assumed that it was from my progesterone supps but this time it felt like more. I got up from bed and headed to the bathroom only to see blood dripping down my leg. I got into the bathroom and freaked out, there was blood everywhere. On my legs, my thighs. I kept repeating " no no no no no o god no no no please no" I semi cleaned up as best I could and realized I was shaking. I tried to get ahold of C with no luck. I headed to the ER with my mother who drove as I continued to try to call C. When I got ahold of her she was already telling work that she had to go and she was telling me " baby im on my way. Im coming ill be there as soon as I can" Part of me wanted to cry, worrying about Sweet Pea and worried about C being careful as she drove to me.
As I got to the ER I explained what was going on and they took me right back. I had no cramping and no pain either. The Dr came in and gave me a pelvic exam to check my cervix, which was closed. She said she didn't see anymore blood just a small clot. About this time C arrived and stayed with me the whole time, holding my hand. We had an external ultrasound ( wow the external sucks as compared to the internal) and showed our amazing baby and its heartbeat beating away. Dr said she could see the fetal pole and all looked well. I was discharged and brought home.
Im not sure I have ever been so scared. I knew that if we were loosing Sweet Pea that there was nothing anyone could do. My heart and body hurt so bad not knowing if our baby was ok. It was such a relief to see the h/b.
After coming home I took a shower and ate a PB&J sandwich to help with the m/s ive been having. About 6am I woke up and headed to the bathroom and threw up for about 5-10 mins. I thought it was never going to end. I finally headed back to bed and slept until 10ish. C got up about 12 and heated up a piece of pizza for me since I was hungry. Not 2 minutes after eating said pizza, it all came back up. I am miserable needless to say and cant hold much down. C was great and stayed with me and then went shopping for some bland foods, crackers, jello, applesause etc. Im hoping the flu goes away...In the meantime I rest for me and Sweet Pea and try to drink enough.

Our first u/s

Of course I was nervous. Who wouldn't be? After all we have gone through to be at that moment, that threshold of emotions was bound to burst.

As we enter the clinic and walked to the counter, it still felt unreal. It felt as if we were there for another mid cycle u/s but when the man behind the counter said "Alright that will be $5" I said " Excuse me did you just say $5?!" to which he replied "Yup, prenatal appointment, Your pregnant right?" I started to get all flustered and said " yes, yes I am" It still feels like im lying to people when I say im pregnant. So we pay and sit down for what felt like forever, in reality I believe it was only a few moments.

We go into the room and i undress and C and I are all smiles and kisses. Talking about this, that and the other just to pass the time. The knock at the door felt like my heart had been jump started by jump jumper cables attached to a big rig. Here we were, the moment of truth. Our nurse comes in and asks how we are etc etc. I lay down on the table and the lights turn off. I reach for C's hand to squeeze, she squeezes back. I feel like after all we have been thorough those hand squeezes are me telling her "I am so scared" and her telling me "Its okay, I am to". So we start and I immediately see the sac as she gets the camera situated. I see the sac, the beautiful sac that holds our baby. Our small grain of rice, itsy bitsy tiny little baby. She looks and right there, right at the very top. There it is. No visible heartbeat yet, which she said was normal for how far along I was at that point (6w1d) She reassured that its normal and she see's it most of the time. For us not to worry because she's not. She pokes around a bit and see's what she believed was the fetal pole. Then did some more poking around to check for "others" (C was so scared there would be 2!) and we were done. She printed out our picture and we were beaming. She said to schedule another apt for next week (Jan 10) and then we could get everything squared away, such as EDD etc.

So without further ado, Sweet Pea. It is small but our entire world nonetheless =)

A real weekly update! Week 6

Let's see, I feel better about eating and the heartburn has died down a bit. Im still the gas queen, burping and farting =/ quite a bit. Not as tired either.

Let's take a look at what thebump.com says is goin on in the womb right about now.

Baby's now the size of a sweet pea!
Growing like crazy, baby is starting to sprout eyes, ears, nose, cheeks, and chin. Those little hands and feet -- still webbed like paddles -- might wiggle by week's end, the heart is beating (almost twice as fast as yours!), and blood is starting to circulate.

Online says

Im 6w today! Cant wait for our u/s on Monday!
