I Was Worried, And So I Owned It

After reading Sienna's comment on my last post I recalled that when she was pregnant she could of cared less if they wrote "CRAZY!!!!" all over her file in red ink. If she was worried, then somebody had better do something to reassure her or she would unleash her wrath upon them! And so I decided that yes, I was worried, and that I was going to own it, not deny it. So I called as soon as they opened this morning and told the receptionist that I wanted to come in today to be reassured that everything was okay. The receptionist did not tell me that I could take my crazy elsewhere. He told me, "I have a 9:30 and a 10:00." I said I could be there by 10 and the husband and I hopped on the subway. In the waiting room the little guy started kicking up a storm and so I already started to feel better. They did an ultrasound and the doctor said everything looked great and we could see him moving around. We listened to the heartbeat and it was nice and fast: in the 140s and 150s, and didn't drop down below that at all.

I was reassured. And happy. I just want to this little baby so much.

She also told me that I'd passed my 1 hour glucose challenge test, and that my iron was lower now than before I started taking prescription iron supplements (although I've skipped a few days here and there, so I will be taking them religiously from now on).

And congrats to S at Misconceptions About Conception on her long awaited BFP!


  1. I'm glad they had you come in and you'll hopefully be getting a good nights sleep tonight! It's not like we make up symptoms out of the blue, so better safe than sorry is my motto : o) xoxo.

  2. I'm glad you did and I'm glad all is well!

  3. I would've done the exact same thing. And didn't their response ("c'moooon in, I have X and Y times available...") just further validate your desire to have everything checked out?

    All is well! And I'm so glad you just got some bonus amazing, reassuring PROOF of that. You're doing AWESOME! xoxo

  4. So glad to hear it! Nothing better than some peace of mind.

  5. Bummer, my post must be lost from a week ago.
    So here I go again:
    I am so glad you could get in with the doctor and everything checked out fine with your little guy!

    I was wondering how you were doing since then? I hope everything settled and you could relax more and more. The worries are never ending in this land, aren't they? I have my own little freak-outs every now and then. I am wondering how have I been able to keep myself from going bananas! :-p

    I am so glad your doctor is so understanding and such a great support!
    Will check back for your update again.

  6. always better to be safe! and a stressed out momma isn't any good so i'm so glad you went in! hope you're doing well!

  7. I'm thinking you are close to your due date now. Hope you and the baby wre doing well! Xoxo.
