Halfway between appointments…

If someone could just go ahead and invent the everything’s-gonna-be-alright-o-meter I’d really appreciate it. That way I could know if everything is going to be alright. or mostly everything. Or somethings are going to go wrong but it won’t be that bad. Or maybe it’s ‘brace yourself for the worst’.

I hate not knowing. No knowing if the little person in there who’s consuming my every thought is gonna make it into this world to meet me.

  1. I am with you. I hate the between ultrasound time more than anything. My husband says I feel reassured for about 12 hours, then start worrying until the next one.

    Let’s invent the device you’ve described. I have a feeling, though, that we just need to kidnap radiologists and get a doppler?

    Thinking of you… how long until you get to see Bubble?

    I just remembered — I started to feel a bit calmer about things when I started feeling kicks — which was maybe 16 weeks for me? A little earlier maybe? Somehow those were really reassuring. If I got anxious I’d just start poking the little ones, until they poked back.

  3. I’m sorry the waiting is so hard. For me it helps to take things one day at a time, and remember that nothing has “gone wrong” yet that should make me worry. Maybe I’m delusional, but I try to pretend I’m just a normal pregnant person…what worries!?

    Hopefully a year from now you’ll look back on this time and just smile, knowing how well it all turned out 🙂

  4. Wow, I really know what you mean. I’d buy that meter in a second. Hind sight is always the “free” meter though 🙂

  5. Yes, the “waiting game” is SO difficult.

    Best wishes to you!
