I just got back from my seven week ultrasound. I had a nervous stomach going there and had some morning sickness. Once I got there it was ok though. It was really busy in the office, but I didn’t have to wait that long.
When I got into the room she starts talking about having to check for chlamydia and gonorrhea with a swab. I was like wait a minute, that involves a speculum right? No one told me I may have to do this today. I was not happy. I managed it though, while telling them I am not good with the speculum. I think they already knew lol. Hubby said I did a very good job and was impressed. Thanks dear lol. I also had to pee in a cup because she said that pregnant women can have an increased chance for uti’s and there can be no symptoms. She said they will fax my results over to my ob so that I won’t have to repeat the tests again. I asked and she said that I won’t have to have any more speculum exams while I am there. Phew. I know they must think I am nuts. I do have to call back to the ob to just schedule an appointment just so it’s on the books.
The scan itself went just fine. I had the scanner that is very straight to the point so it wasn’t as touchy feely as last time. I am measuring right on target for 7 weeks and everything looks good. Hubby was surprised at the difference in size from last time. The heartbeat was 152. So yea for that. I asked about hearing the heartbeat and she said that hearing the heartbeat vaginally can hurt the baby so I will have to wait until I go to the ob and they scan me over my stomach. I have never heard of that before, have you guys? What would be harmful? I mean she already is in there with the wand, maybe it has something to do with whatever the machine does to make sound. I don’t know, but I was a little disappointed. Oh well.
So, so far so good. I feel very fortunate that things are going so well now that I passed the crazy scary part at the beginning of this pregnancy. I’m still thinking of all of you and hoping for your happy endings. I also want to send hugs out to Tillien, Bravingivf, and FC Blacksheep.
