I went to my OB/GYN appointment yesterday. My DH was able to accompany me. (They've got to make wider parking stalls to accomodate us expectant mothers.) Anyways, we got to hear the words we've been wanting to hear, "I got the preliminary results from your amnio and everything looks really good. You can NOW tell your family the awesome news of your pregnancy." My DH and I stared at one another in disbelief. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. He didn't care where we were, he kissed me
right in front of the doctor.
I'm still on Progesterone 2cc daily until week 23.
Then I'll be dropped down to 2cc once a week. I can't wait till these injections end.
I had a mild cramping from the amnio needle going in then it resulted in a bruise. I will be returning to the fetal specialist for one more appointment on this upcoming Friday because he wasn't able to see the "stomach bubble". This is to check if baby is swallowing. The clarity of the ultrasound there was unbelievable. Then we also got to see the 3D images. All of the images were placed on a CD which I could print up later @ Costco. If you ladies get a chance to hear your baby's heartbeat in stereo rather than on the fetal doppler, it's an unreal experience.
Finally, we get to tell the family, my employer and coworkers. Some of my patients have made snide remarks about me looking like I've gain weight. (I've only gained all about two pounds. But my belly @ 4 months is getting difficult to hide especially after I eat even a small meal.)
My DH is just ecstatic! We plan on telling the family at Easter brunch. We'll be going over to my parents house. Then later that day, we'll be celebrating with his family. I'll bet they are going to be wondering how the heck we were able to keep a secret this long.
Speaking of a secret,
We asked not find out or be told of the sex. I didn't want to know being that this is my first ever baby. My DH, on the other hand, wanted to know. He decided at the last moment to respect my wishes. If my DH knew and I didn't, I probably
bug the heck out of him until he told me what he knew. We wouldn't have any peace @ home. Now, for the gruelling task of finding a name for either a girl or a boy.
, do any of you have a recommendation for a lotion. My legs are looking really dry. I'm using a body lotion w/ shea butter from L'Occitane. But it seems as though it is not doing the trick. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
Have a Happy Easter to you all!
