11 weeks and counting!
Well today's appointment was fairly uneventful. I had the nuchal scan first and everything looks perfectly normal - I'm 11 weeks and 3 days today. Baby was wiggling all over the place and DH and the kids came along this time and the kids were surprisingly fascinated. We could see all the important parts and everything was fine. Then I got drained of blood and had my vitals taken - my bp is still good at 123/66 and I gained weight for the first time. Then I finally saw my OB and he was really reassuring. We talked about how I've been feeling, and there isn't really anything to be done right now other than to stay hydrated and rest when I feel I need to, etc etc. He did say a lot of my feelings are probably stress-related and it was understandable. He promised they'll be keeping a close watch on everything and that if I ever have any concerns to please don't ever feel silly for calling or coming in. It was really nice - his wife actually had their 4th at 34 weeks while Coral was in the NICU and our babies were in the same hospital. We saw a LOT of each other in the hospital cafeteria! So, I don't feel any better physically but it's nice to know that I can talk to him and he cares.
