First, I am totally confused about the start of the second trimester...some places say Week 13, some week 14, some even week 12...well, I am going with 13.3 weeks. Mathematically, I find this the most accurate. Forty weeks divided by three is thirteen weeks, three days. That, my friends, is TOMORROW!
July 13 positive beta test
July 14-15 - paint the new house
July 15 beta increased!!
July 23 - repeat beta since I lost all symptoms
July 26-29 - Family reunion to Rock Island, IL
July 31 - CLOSE on NEW HOUSE!!
August 3 first see our little Bean with a heartbeat
August 3-4 - MOVE!
August 11 spotting - RE put me on bedrest
August 13 first ER visit - bean's heartbeat is nice and strong - given rhogam shot
August 15 - Second ER visit - passed a clot the size of my fist. Kitchen floor looked like a crime scene. Bean still growing and heart is still strong. (Praise God!) Diagnosed with subchlorionic hemorrhage - Modified Bedrest.
August 23 - first visit to new OB. Bean looks great. No sign of SCH. See in one month. Made appt for NTscreening
September 13 - NT screening - Bean is perfect. Risk of abnormalities is that of a twenty-two year old.
September 18 - called dr at 2am for spotting. No more signs of spotting, but told I could spot throughout the pregnancy.
September 19 - feel pretty good today.
It has been a whirlwind first trimester. I am thankful that it will be over quick. I am patiently waiting for the days of glowing skin (ha) and waiting for Bean to kick. Why is there no pregnancy book that gives you the 'real' pregnancy facts? I feel like suck an anomaly, the only thing that I have not done is throw up consistently - I have had nausea.
Here is to the Second Trimester being fabulous - Visitors - Halloween - Thanksgiving. I hope it goes quickly (I didn't add Christmas to this list as my Third Tri begins on Christmas Eve!)
