So this is a bit late, had no time to blog yesterday (stupid work)
We had a really busy day on Sunday, lots of errands, running around, then made a big dinner. That night, I kept getting horrible cramps on my right side that woke me up at night and made me double over. I kind of freaked out. Partially thinking all those horrible DBT's but also worried about cysts, etc. At my last ultrasound, my right ovary was still about 3 times larger than it should be.
Called the dr and they had me come in that morning. Explained that it was probably round ligament pain and since I'm already starting to get a little belly, I'm probably going to have some of the 2nd tri symptoms early. I protested that a bit, it's not really fair to have them when I still have all of the lovely first tri pukiness! But, I scored an ultrasound out of the deal. Finally, little Q does not look like a shrimp anymore. It's an actual little human, waving it's left arm over its head. Q was ALL over the place and would not sit still for a picture. She also said that she couldn't get a read on the heart rate through the u/s but that she wasn't worried since there was so much movement. (anyone else heard anything like that??)
Regardless, I feel much better. I didn't even mention the doppler...but in the interest of my sanity its getting sent back this weekend. My family keeps telling me to just trust my body, but I can't. It has proven itself too untrustworthy too many times. But I think I'm going to trust this baby. I have to believe that little Q knows what to do. He/she is going to be in charge from here on out, I'll just do everything I can to give him/her the best damn chance I can.
Other than that...work is kicking my butt right now. We've just got too much going on and I have been so unproductive lately. So I'm still either working or sleeping. Really ready for that 2nd tri energy to kick in along with all the pains ;)
