13 weeks 6 days. 183 days to go.
So we had our first “scare” last night and kinda this morning. Around 1pm yesterday I started having this weird pain in the middle of my abdomen, right under my belly button. It was like a burning/stabbing pain and would only last a second or two but I was having a couple an hour. By the time dinner rolled around they were getting more frequent so after conferring with some friends who have been pregnant several times, I called the after hours nurse and after 20 minutes of questions she said she wanted me to come in first thing the next morning.
Off to the office I went at 6:50 this morning and they said since I wasn’t bleeding everything was fine but they wanted to check the baby just to be sure. She started with the doppler and got nothing. She seemed concerned because she said at this point we should be able to hear it. I was ok until she seemed concerned. She excused herself and came back and said that they wanted to do an ultrasound to check everything out. When I got in the ultrasound room I was able to get a brief glimpse of the heartbeat before the fire alarms went off and we were told we have to evacuate. Are you fucking kidding me?! Atleast I knew there was a heartbeat. 10 minutes later we came inside and got to finish up. The funny thing was that once I got back on the table and she started the scan again the baby had its hands by its ears as if the noise bothered him/her! It was really cute 🙂 The doctor gave me the thumbs up and said that if the pain comes back worse or if there is any bleeding call but to just take it easy. So that’s what I am going to do 🙂
