21 weeks 6 days. 127 days to go.
Yesterday I woke up with a dull burning sensation in the urethra area when walking/sitting and immediately thought: “oh great, a UTI” even though I didn’t have any issues with going to the bathroom. As the morning progressed the burning got worse and I had some more than normal clear liquid discharge. My infertile brain went to exactly to the worst… OMG THAT IS AMNIOTIC FLUID! I called my OB and told them about the burning and that I thought maybe it was a UTI but I was worried about the excess fluid. The receptionist took my concerns and said they would put a message into the nurses. 8 whole hours later (I was so not happy about the wait!) I got a call back from a nurse who obviously thought I was seriously overreacting and tried to fluff it off as a possible UTI and scheduled me for a urinalysis for this morning. Why do these nurses not take people seriously, are my concerns not valid? I understand I go to the worst case scenario but those things DO happen which is why I am concerned… ugh
Fast forward to this morning. A little less burning and less discharge but I was still super paranoid. Couple this with the fact that baby boy moved from my right side to the middle and I can’t feel him as well now so that had me worried even though I know that this early is too early to rely on fetal movement as any type of indicator.
I get to the office, give my sample which is negative so I actually got to see a doctor which means I got to hear Grant 🙂 His HB was in the 150’s today and it is always so amazing to hear. Today was the first time my stomach was measured and he said I am right on track with that so that’s good. My BP was still good (117/72) and weight is still on track (up 2 ounces since my appointment with them 3 weeks ago).
