Spidey's Graduation

As shocked as I am to be typing this, I am also happy to say that our appointment went well this morning. I'm 8w4d and Spidey was measuring 9w1d (although the tech was pretty sloppy with the measurement, but I don't mind). Heartbeat was 173bpm which seems high to be, but they assured me that it was fine. (Will Google in a few minutes.)

Like everyone else, I'm scared to be in the world of regular people. Even more stupid since I was here once before with Megan. But this feels different. I feel like I'm made of spun glass -- on the inside and the outside. Hopefully, at some point, I'll stop feeling like the other shoe is about to drop, but there's no way that's going to happen this early in the game.

In the meantime, SeaBands, Zantac, ginger snaps and flat coke are at least making a small dent in the insansity going on in my digestive tract. It's awful. I'm going to see the acupuncturist today so hopefully she'll work some magic on me. NOT that I'm complaining...

Today is my sister's birthday, which is a nice date to share with Spidey's Graduation Day. I hope we have many, many more milestones and birthdays to share with my little Spidey from now on.

Congrats on graduating! That's terrific news. Do you have your next appt scheduled? The sooner the better, right? I had to wait 5.5 weeks between graduation and my first appointment and that wait was very difficult! I hope that your morning sickness eases up soon!

Good news! And you are completely allowed to complain about how you feel! Even if you want to be there, it doesn't sound like fun.

This is such great news Leah!! I'm really over the moon with excitement for you! I understand the feeling like being made of glass. It made no sense to me at all, but it was (is) all so different this time around.

Great news! Spidey is hopefully making a nice spider web home there!

I know what you mean about dealing with this after a first one. At 7 wks on my previous, I was so happy and buying baby clothes, etc. Now, even at 12 wks I sometimes worry what could go wrong...I think its the nature of dealing with all the procedures and shots and ups and downs--its hard to believe its over.

Hez said...

Happy graduation!!! My your morning sickness resolve quickly!

Grad3 said...

Fantastic news :) Maybe Spidey has go-go gadget arms to help that great attachement!

Still glad you are feeling poorly but hope that you reach a non-anxiety producing up swing soon! ~Hugs~

Gabby said...

LJ said...

Happy b-day to your sis, and happy graduation day!!

This is just so wonderful to hear.

Jendeis said...

Congrats on the good news! As for the nausea, flat Coke and SeaBands are also my go-to relief methods. Instead of the ginger snaps, you may want to try ginger pills or candied ginger. Good luck at the acupuncturist!

Karen said...

Awesome! I'm so happy for you!

Karen said...

P.S. Zofran is your friend. Please ask your doctor for a prescription if the nausea is that bad. Seriously.
