10w 0d

My appointment went great. It's still alive and everything looked fine. And, just like the pregnancy books said, it's wiggling and moving now, even more than I imagined. I had to laugh when I saw it move, cause it moves so much, but I can't feel any of it and it's hilarious to me that something that big can be living inside and I can't feel it at all.

But the whole appointment was so fantastic. The same LPN that did my weight and blood pressure last time checked me again today. She was a total idiot last week, but this week when she asked me how my 4th was and I explained why I was there, she showed a level of compassion I wouldn't have believed her capable of.

Also, I didn't have to ask, I was taken straight to the u/s room. The dr came in and I was expecting her to give me a hard time about being back so soon, but not one iota of judgement came out of her. She didn't make me feel silly at all and it was a total relief to not have to feel the need to explain myself.

My cervix looked good, no blood in the uterus. Everything was just fine.

We talked a little about the weekend situation. She kinda lamented that we were on our own on the weekends, but if I have more problems during the week, just calling in and getting an appointment immediately isn't a problem.

I'm still not sure about sex. But I think it's too early to give up completely.

And even though it is pretty early for RLP, she thinks I could be having it, which doesn't make me feel like too much of a nut job, but I also haven't had too much of it yet.

So other than scary cramping and some RLP, symptoms are status quo from last week. My weight was pretty good today. I was actually up 2lbs at my last appointment (from prepregnancy) but this week I was 1lb under my prepregnancy. I think I was a little dehydrated, but it looks like I'm staying on track so far.

Such great news!!!

It sounds like you have a really great doctor! I'm glad everything looks good. I felt the same amazement after seeing K moving all around for that early u/s. weird to see it all and not feel a thing (baby related at least). It won't be too much longer probably.
