I went to the doctor today instead of waiting for my appointment on Monday. I started having these annoying/bad cramps and pinching feelings and it scared me (since my miscarriage wasn't long ago...). Everything checked out fine! Baby's heartbeat was 164 (down from 178 at 10w3d which is good according to my OB).
I didn't get an ultrasound and I thought that when I left I would be scheduling my BIG ultrasound, but no such luck. I go back on Aug 14 and then I will schedule my u/s for 2 weeks after that. Bummer. My doc apparently likes to wait until about 19-20 weeks to determine the gender.
I've gotten several offers from friends who want to host a baby shower for me. I think I am in the minority but it makes me so uncomfortable! I hate being the center of attention. I about died during my bridal shower. If it were up to me I would probably not have any showers and just go buy all the things I need myself! But people really want to get involved so I guess I should let them! Am I alone on this one?
