|03-11-2009 - 1st Ultrasound
||My mood while writing this blog:|
Yesterday I went for my first ultrasound! I was really nervous (as always) because I always fear the worst! But everything went fine. It was a horrible hot day and it was also Melbourne cup day, which I didn't even realise when I made the appointment which so happened to be exactly at 3pm (when the race starts!) So there were a lot of excited people around and I got to watch the race on big screen.
Anyway, I had to wait a little while since my bladder wasn't full enough, but eventually I got in and saw my little bean on screen :) It was measuring 7 weeks and 4 days which is more than I thought so I was really happy! My due date is now the 18th of June (mines the 18th of November so I like the number 18!) and the heart rate was 161bpm.
I went back and calculated around the time I would have got pregnant, I worked it out to be around the 18th of September...give or take. The crazy thing is, my partner didn't get out of rehab till the 16th of September so basically it was the weekend after he got out that it happened. I feel like one of those people who got pregnant the first time they had sex! All the same, I am happy and excited, haven't even been too sick *touch wood*, only the occasional wave of nausea, but nothing compared to what I had with Bonnie. So I'm hoping I have lucked out! Even so, at least it's only 1 month till I'm out of the first trimester :)
I told my Mum after the scan, I sent her a text message (yes I was a little too chicken to call). Anyway, I didnt get a reply till later on in the NIGHT and all it said was "good for you xox mum xox" Now I don't know how I was supposed to take that, I took it negatively and it made me feel really small, like I was this idiot who got pregnant too soon. I wish just ONCE she could be happy for me. I wish everyone could be happy! I hate people who just sit there and blab on about how hard it's going to be and the finacial responsibility and blah blah. Can't people just say, oh I don't know, CONGRATULATIONS!!!
