I went in for my 10 week appointment today. I was nervy because it’s been a while and I just wanted to make sure everything was ok. It didn’t seem very busy, but yet I didn’t get called back till 30 minutes after my appointment time. One of the assistants took my blood pressure and she said it was a little high. She seemed a little concerned and that made me even more nervy. I wished my hubby was there, but he was at work. Finally after sitting there for a while the nurse came in and did my scan.
The baby looks great, is bigger (measuring 10.6 weeks) and the heart beat is nice and strong. Turtle was curled up at first, but then could not get comfortable and kept wiggling and turning around and such. The first picture I got Turtle was looking right at us, it’s kind of a freaky picture lol. I decided not to do the first trimester screening because I get nervy about things enough as it is.
After she finished looking at the baby she looked around to make sure everything else was ok. She especially wanted to see my placenta because she saw the extra piece last week. This week it looked different, more see through and it was like a circle coming off of my placenta. She said that she hadn’t seen anything like that before so she is sending a picture down to MFM and soon I will have an appointment down there to make sure everything is ok. She said that she is just being safe with me since I have been through so much and just wants someone who is knowledgeable in these things to check it out. She also said it’s good to check things out early in case I need to be monitored closer. So now I’m really nervy, and my brain is coming up with crazy things. In my job I go down to MFM all the time and read about things women have had to go through. I hope that this weird placenta thing isn’t going to cause harm to turtle. I know too much of what could go wrong because of my job so my brain is going off to those places. One thing that is making me feel a tiny better is that when she found it I could see turtles feet moving around and thats it. So I think she was kinda far from him. So *fingers crossed* She said MFM will probably call me in the next week. I want to hurry up and know what it really is and know if it’s something I should worry about. I need to step away from google. I feel like it taints things a little. I am going out to lunch with a friend of mine today who I was going to tell that we are pregnant. Next weekend I am going to tell hubby’s extended family. This is going to be in the back of my head the whole time now. I need to tell my brain to calm down. Anyone have any knowledge on this?
