Finally had my 16w1d ultrasound on Monday. So far everything looks very good. Our Down's risk went down to 1:3000 (ish). This time dr was much less 'enthusiastic' about doing an ammio. He was really pushing for it 2 weeks ago, but this time things looked good enough that the amnio didn't seem necessary. I was so relieved and H was happy too. We agreed that if anything looked remotely concerning on the u/s that I would agree to amnio.
I was clear that terminiation was not an option as long as there was no threat to anyone's life. I have already had to do 2 terminations and I really didn't believe I could handle another one, especially if the baby was still alive. At least both others had already 'expired' by the time of the procedure.
H spent some of the weekend refinishing a 'new' piece of furniture for the nursery. (?) I don't know how I feel about saying that. It still feels like if I say too much that it will get taken away from us. It is just superstition, but still.
I attached the latest sonogram, though I have no idea how blogger handles pdfs. I hope it works, otherwise I will have to figure out another solution after work.
The biggest 'concern' the dr had was that I hadn't gained any weight since I have been coming to him 4 weeks ago. He asked if I was sick or nauseous. I am not, never had any nausea really. That concerned him a little but he said that I might be a later bloomer than average. Well, last night my belly pooked out. I went from having a little paunch that was mostly just a tire of fat around my waist to a firm round belly. And I gained 1/2 pound since yesterday morning.
I don't know that I will be able to hide this at work for very much longer. I was hoping to keep this to myself for a little bit longer but it is starting to get tougher and tougher especially as most of my clothes don't fit anymore.
I guess this secret is going to have to come out sooner or later. I fear that once I start telling everyone that something horrible will happen and that really scares the crap out of me.
