NT Eve

I tried to watch the Golden Globes tonight and ended up puking halfway through.   Nothing to do with the awards show, but instead an on-going symptom of my “evening sickness.”  I may never eat vegetable tempura again.  Pregnancy, at least the first 16 weeks, is a fantastic weight-loss regime for me.  To date, I have dropped about 10 lbs. since I found out I was pregnant.

Tomorrow morning we have our NT screen.  I am terrified.  Please, please, please let everything be okay.  The little heartbeat was nice and strong on my doppler, so I am trying to be positive.  The perinatologist just has me totally freaked out about my age and it is hard to be optimistic.   Based on my age, the odds are 1/400, which are pretty good odds.  But still.

Tomorrow I am 13 weeks and classes start again on Tuesday.

    Good luck on you screen! I hope everything is alright, and that your evening sickness stops soon!

    It is unfortunate that your perinatologist has you (most likely unneccessarily) scared out of your wits. Take a deep breath. A lot of women a lot older than you have perfectly heathly babies every day. I am one of them. I know it is soooo hard, but try to focus some positive energy down to that babe. Hang in there.

    Hi there…can you tell me what kind of doppler you use and tips for using it. I have one and I can’t even find my own heartbeat. We saw the baby’s heartbeat nice and strong 2 days before I got the doppler, so i’m not concerned about that…but I apparently can’t figure out my doppler.
