Today’s Our Big Day

We head to our 1st ultrasound today at 7 weeks to hopefully see our little one.  I have put it off as long as Dr C will let me.  I needed to give our little one a chance to grow nice and healthy.  I am going to try really heard not to have a nervous breakdown, throw up, cry, etc.  I can tell Mark is on edge too he didn’t sleep well last night and was snappy this morning.  If we don’t see a heartbeat and we repeat our missed miscarriage I will need to take a few days off from the outside world.  

But on paper I have no reason to think something is wrong. I have sore boobs, the veins are growing, my belly is growing, I’m tired all day, I pee a lot, and I am moody. The blood work has been spot on so far and thank god I haven’t bled.  So if it weren’t for the June miscarriage I would be very excited for today’s appointment.  I have lots of folks praying for us so what else can we do. I’ve done everything I can to grow a healthy peanut. 

I did get the toes painted this week. My normal nail girl wasn’t there so her teenage son had to do my toes.  Hence the very uneven hearts but he tried really hard and added glitter. Yes I have short, stubby toes I blame it on my italian heritage.

The heels have been chosen but knowing Mark he will tell me to take them off but I will try. He can be a party pooper sometimes.

So send any and all prayers and wishes for our 3pm ultrasound today.  Hopefully I will be back later today with a great report.

    Thanks for stopping by “my place”. The comments I’ve received these last few days have meant the world to me.

    I hope your u/s goes well today and you see the little flicker of a heartbeat. I’ll be praying for you!

    You must be really anxious. I’ve experienced a missed MC at 10.5 weeks and I can barely imagine how terrified I feel if I ever conceive again. Good luck. I’ll be checking back to hear your update.
