Yes, it has been almost 2 weeks since my last post. Turns out the baby books weren't joking about the first trimester tiredness! I even find myself nodding off at my desk...which is kind of awkward when people don't know that you're pregnant and probably think you've been having too many big nights. Doesn't help that I get pretty bored at work. Did tell my boss about a week ago. He knows about our m/cs and was really happy for us. Anyway, I'm finding at the moment that I have just about enough energy when I get home to have something to eat, collapse in front of the TV and then drag myself to bed (remembering to pop in a pessary before I go to sleep). Can't complain too much though...Hernlet really hasn't given me too much by way of morning sickness (the odd queasy moment here and there, especially when the guy across from me at work has his tin of tuna for breakfast!)
Speaking of Hernlet, we got to see him/her again yesterday. The machine at the place where I'm having these extra scans is a relatively basic one so you don't see all the detail but you could see enough to tell that a) Hernlet has grown! and b) Hernlet has a good, strong heartbeat. DH was pretty amazed because the previous week the heartbeat had just been a tiny flicker but yesterday you could really see it pumping.
Anyway, depending on who you ask, I am 9 weeks either today or tomorrow, so Hernlet should look something like this:
On Tuesday we have our first OB appointment where we'll probably get to see Hernlet again. We'll also get the referrals for the NT scan and blood test, so of course that's the next thing I'm worrying about. Hopefully all will be ok and then we'll be able to finally share our news.
