I was so nervous before the ultrasound appointment this morning. And honestly, I am still nervous!!! Spoiler alert, it was good. And it feels very surreal!
So the u/s tech did the abdominal scan first, and could actually see the heartbeat flicker, but it wasn't very clear. She said she didn't think I was eight weeks, but not to worry (I'm 8 weeks 3 days past my last period), so of course I immediately started worrying more. We moved on to the dildo cam, and lo and behold she was wrong. The little bugger is measuring right about 8 weeks 4 days, and the heartbeat is nice and strong at 171. She said it looks nice and secure in there, and everything looks good. I don't see the doctor again until Monday, so that's all I got for now.
Now I have this fear that I'm going to start spotting again, like the wand might have irritated some stuff down there or something. But I'm trying to remind myself that ultrasounds do not cause miscarriages!
Whew. I should probably feel/sound more excited, right? I'm just still so nervous!
I'm finally starting my part time job this afternoon, so that should help me keep my mind off of being anxious, hopefully. I'm doing some office work for a DJ and event lighting company. Then tomorrow I have a catering gig, basically just hosting some buffet stations, nothing too strenuous. At least I'll have a little extra money coming in this week, god knows we're gonna need it!
