Update: Got blood taken this afternoon for progesterone levels. I have an ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow at 10am, but it's not with my OB, but part of the medical community (it's a large research hospital community, if that makes sense?) and H won't be able to make it due to him having court (he's an attorney). I'll get my bloodwork results back tomorrow, since my insurance uses the on-site lab, but I am torn on getting the ultrasound without him there. I kind of pictured it as a special moment to share, and under the circumstances, it just doesn't seem as special :/
WW1stTriD? Wait until the "real" appointment next Tuesday with the husband, or go tomorrow?
Weird part of my day: I still made it to my dentist appointment, and that actually made me feel better. They kind of fussed over me and my sensitive pregnant gums, and the dentist's wife is 15 months along. They liked that I call mine "The Raptor" and he started quoting from Jurassic Park. I also got a $20 coupon for a Sonicare toothbrush, which they told me would help with preventing pregnancy gingivitis. She was also extra gentle with the cleaning, which I appreciated, as my psyche needs a gentle hand today.
Oh, and the nurses were fantastic. I spoke with two different triage nurses, and the one I spoke with this morning called me after I had gotten my labs done to apologize for not getting back to me sooner, but she had that pregnancy class to teach and she was out, but that she and the other nurse had been communicating about me all day. It made me feel special and a little misty, I'm not going to lie.
I'm taking it super easy tonight. I'm going to make H order us Chinese and I'm going to plant myself on the couch.
Thank you, ladies, for all your kind words and encouragement. It means so much to me. I don't have any IRL close friends who are pregnant, so you all do a great job of filling that void.
