I am currently in my 7th week, or 6 weeks 1 day to be exact. Which means I have surpassed my most recent miscarriage. My anxiety level has gone down very, very slightly.
My next goal is to be in my 11th week, or 10 weeks 0 days. Four more weeks. February 11th , according to my calculations. So very far away.
All of my symptoms has disappeared completely until yesterday when my boobs started hurting again and the carsickness returned. Of course, it was the first time I had been passenger in the car, so the carsickness may have always been there, I just didn't know it. The sore boobs disappeared this morning, though.
Anyone who has miscarried before is familiar with dead baby thoughts. You know, when you swear your baby is dead and your body just hasn't gotten around to miscarrying yet. I had a major case of those this past Saturday and was sure that any minute I would start bleeding and have to spend the rest of my night in the hospital.
My first prenatal appointment is this Wednesday and I'm hoping to be sent for blood work and an ultrasound. But with this new insurance, I'm not sure what I'll be allowed to do. I just want a hint as to whether this baby will be sticking around a while or not. As much as I would love for this to be THE pregnancy, if it isn't I would like to know as early as possible. It's much easier to miscarry when you're expecting it than when you've gotten to whatever magic week makes you feel safe and then being caught by surprise.
