Pregnancy week 9
Thursday, November 02, 2006
So this week hasn't been as horrible as last week until today. I've been feeling nauseous basically since I got up and got sick after lunch today. I'm also extremely exhausted. In fact I will be taking a nap after this. I'm really struggling with the idea of the "unknown" at least with the baby. I'm nervous about having a miscarriage because when you start reading about it is SO common. I have seen and heard the heart beat at 7 wks 3 days and the bpm was 167 which I'm told is good. My next appt can't come soon enough! Its still 2 weeks away but I wish I could get some confirmation that everything is ok and the baby is healthy. I've thought about renting a Doppler so I can reassure myself that the baby is ok. But even if I got one now I'm not sure I'm far enough along to hear a heartbeat with it. Both my husband and my mom think I'm paranoid but really miscarriages ARE common. My mom's never had one though so I'm not sure she knows how to sympathize. More ranting to come later but for now I NEED A NAP!
