I had been waiting around for days for the doctor call. I had a few calls but I hate "unknown" numbers. They've released cell phone numbers so now telemarketers can call your cell phone. So usually if its not a number saved in my phone I don't answer it. With all this baby brain I never thought once that the "unknown number" was the doctors office. I finally checked my voicemail, I despise taking the time it takes to listen to the whole spiel "You have one new message. New message:..... Press 1 to replay, Press 7 to delete, Press 9 to save" BLAH BLAH BLAH. Such a waste of my time so I only check it a couple times a week. 3 of the 5 voice mails were the doctor. I had to end up waiting until Monday to call them back, all while silently having a panic attack about my blood work and that it'd be just my luck that they messed up my results with someone else and tell me that I have HIV. Thank you Grey's Anatomy for always making me think of the worst possible scenario.
ANYWAY, this is where baby brain gets you....RAMBLING.
I called the doctors office and they told me that my results were all normal and the ultrasound was good AND that my new due date is April 10th, 2011. I had the ultrasound on the first day of Week 8 and she told us that the baby was measuring about 8W3D but the doctor would decide. So now my week changes on Sunday's instead of Wednesdays. So as of Sunday I was 10 weeks. It blows my mind that its been 6 weeks since we found out.
So far this pregnancy has NOT been fun. I throw up every time I brush my teeth in the morning, I'm exhausted all of the time yet I cant sleep past 8:30, no food EVER sounds good until I'm starving and then I never know what to eat, I'm nauseous almost all day though that is finally starting to get a little better, my used to be almost flawless skin is now breaking out which drives me CRAZY. I'm ready to welcome the 2nd trimester where I'm not nauseous I hope, where the exhaustion calms down and mostly when I can start feeling the baby. It'll all seem worth it and more real when I know that someone is in there, not just some bug that is making me sick and miserable.
I asked for some recommendations on OB's in the area. I want a doctor to deliver my baby at Sacred Heart who I've met and seen numerous times. My current midwife switches between 5 others at Deaconess. I want someone I see more than once, not meet them once and have them deliver my baby because my regular midwife is on vacation in Cancun or some nonsense. So a friend of a friend who I've met a few times works at NW OB/GYN. They deliver to Sacred Heart and do their ultrasounds there at the office instead of sending me to some other place across town like my current doctor. A couple friends had recommended them as well. Thankfully she was able to make sure that I was accepted with a referral from my current doctor and to fax over all my labs and she'll get them to make me an appointment. So in 2 weeks max they should call to schedule me an appointment. I had one on the 29th but since I'm transferring it may be a little later.
I keep thinking how unreal my life is sometimes. I'm very lucky to have Jake by my side through all this. I give my sister props for doing it all by herself, but I wouldn't trade for the world. Its nice to have someone understand how nauseous I feel and let me sleep in a little bit, or make me breakfast, or not make me feel bad if I'm too sick to into work, or get mad because I space unloading the dishwasher because I forget after my bubble bath, or throw a fit because I don't want Subway or whatever else when he does because it makes me want to throw up. He lets me get weird snacks when I need them without giving me grief and I'm sure he'll even run out to get me ice cream and pickles when I start having really weird cravings. I'm sure he'll give me grief for that because it'll make HIM want to vomit but he'll do it. Gotta love having a good man, though he needs a bit of uptraining in the romance department. Took my dad years to figure it out but I'm sure he could provide some insight, riiiiight daddy? :P
We also went to Red Lobster the other night and OMG was I SOOO ecstatic to find out that crab is safe to eat if its fully cooked. So I definitely enjoyed every bite of the crab legs I got. I'm so glad Nathan loves crab legs too. So now its 2 against 1. Ethan will eat it too, so technically if he had a vote that counted it would be 3 against Jake. Pregnant lady and two demanding kids, we'll always win :)
That is all, I'm exhausted.
