10w4d

Today is 10w4d and my, oh my, has this week been an anxiety filled one.  Yesterday, we went to the ER because I was bleeding.  The ER Doctor was a jerk (in my opinion) and kept talking about how we would just have to wait and see if this ends in miscarriage or if it turns out okay.

We went to my infertility specialist for my last visit today.  CB was all over the place and was very active!  We then followed up with my regular Dr. after yesterday's events.  We talked for a while, and she completely understands my anxiety and wants us to be as at ease as possible, so she has offered to let us come in weekly for sonograms and heartrate checks, or however often we need.  She said she understands that I probably won't relax until we are in the "safe" zone, but she said she also knows that being a part of this community that I won't be completely at ease until this little one is safe and sound in our arms.  I'm so blessed to have wonderful Dr.'s who are willing to accommodate us and help us however we need.

Next sonogram is scheduled for Friday.  And I'll add the picture of CB from today once I get it scanned in to my computer.

It's back to work tomorrow for me, but with limited duty.  I think I am going to rest and relax and not do any audits until after we go to high-risk next week and possibly not until after we have our cerclage done.  Once we get through that, and through the 12 week mark, I think I will feel a little bit better for the time being...at least until we get to 23 weeks.

Praying that the days ahead ease up a little! I know it's not easy to overcome all of the anxiety...especially when you have scares resulting in ER visits. Prayers going your way!

Just take care of you and CB and don't worry about anything else. You're doing the most important job right now. The anxiety of the subsequent pregnancy is so overwhelming at times. I won't relax until Caleb is home with me. I know you'll be the same with CB.

I am so sorry that you have had such a difficult week. I wish that ER doctor could have showed more empathy, but at least you have amazing regular doctors who understand your anxiety. I am so glad they are willing to help ease your fears while recognizing nothing but a live and healthy baby will truly help. I will keep you in my prayers and will continue to cheer CB on! I hope that the sonogram is going well today. Sending you love and support! <3 <3 <3
