Wow, I haven't posted in awhile! We've had 2 appts with Dr. Lesorgen since I've updated. On 2/15 we had another ultrasound and the baby was beautiful! He/she is starting to look like a baby, not just a blob. We saw the arms/legs, it was amazing! The hpm was a strong 170 and it was still as amazing as the first time to hear. The baby was measuring one day ahead, which is great and measured 17mm! Amazing what a difference a day makes!
We also went to our graduating visit with my RE on 2/25. We had to wait a little extra time because I wasnt told that my ultrasound was external, so I had to fill my bladder...boy in the end I was about to explode! I couldnt believe that the baby was already big enough to be seen externally and hear the heartbeat again :-) Again it was a strong 170bpm. We didn't get to see much this time since external is much harder to see and with a little extra, I'm sure its tougher, but I saw the flicker of the heartbeat and heard it, so I didnt care about much else! He/she was measuring 26mm, again one day ahead of schedule! So, after all went well, including my prog level, though I am weary, I graduated to my reg OB. Don't get me wrong, I will forever be thankful to Dr. Lesorgen and Linda, well and I guess Christine (the U/S tech), and I love them, I just wanted to be able to be a "normal" pg patient. Of course the person that made this all possible is God and I thank him every day. On Monday 3/3 I will have my first appt with Dr. Rauthauser, so I will keep you updated.
For now, I'm simply nauseous, hungry, tired, etc. I've been vomiting a lot, but hopefully it will get better. My heartburn is not too bad and I hope it doesnt get any worse! But it doesnt matter, I will do it for this baby!
