This week, the nausea and tiredness have come back and I'm flattened again. I guess that is the name of the game when you have your first baby at 47 years of age. I"m going with the theory that bubbie is having a big growth spurt! :)
I am grateful for a good doctors appointment yesterday and emotionally, I feel better for it. My doctor had been away for a few weeks, so I was really happy to connect with her for the first time with this pregnancy. She was so excited!!
She did a doppler scan and we were both excited to have found bubbies heartbeat. It was a relief and a thrill all at the same time. So, after a week of feeling quite anxious and nervous, I am finally starting to relax into the pregnancy a little bit. I am really looking to when he/she is kicking around inside me and I get constant reassurances!
We got the results of our 12 week scan last week and everything looks great. Our risk factor for Downs etc is very low and all test and images show a healthy baby and pregnancy. Another sigh of relief!
Today, I have to not feel guilty about work and just take care of myself. Bubbie and my health is the most important thing. I am so grateful to be able to work from home and be able to take the time when I need it. And I have an understanding brother for a boss! Blessings.
I thought I would post a little video of bubbie doing jumps inside my womb during our 12 week scan. The file didn't come over very well, so hubbie put the one good jump we got on video into a loop. Jump and slide back down, jump and sliiiide back down!
