ndh hope you had a nice easter too! love the photos on facebook, saranna is so cute.
I was waiting till my midwife apt today to come and update, nothing too exciting. I can go for my 20 week scan at 19 weeks if I want, but she says sometimes people have to go back if they cant see anything. Im anxious for that one as I want to know everything looks ok then I will tell the world Im preggers! Im 15 weeks at the end of the week so I suppose I can last 4-5 weeks more. Have to go for bloods at 16 weeks and then I get my screening results a couple of weeks after.
Nothing else much exciting, my tummy is rounder but nothing much. A friend of a friend put her 15 week bump photo on FB and hers is huge. Its her 2nd, but still!
Ive had a few crying breakdowns about my finger. Now that the scab is off and Im just using bandaids I have to see it more, and its just shocking to me that this has happened. Its only about 3/4 inch shorter than normal, but its the blunt cut and no nail thats so shocking. Im having a hard time thinking that I have to live with this. One of my clients who does hand surgery said fingertip reconstruction is not common in north america, its very specialized. but I am determind! for now I keep a bandaid on so I dont have to look at it. The end is very sore if I hit it as its just a thin layer of new skin.
You have a lot of strength to have made it this far without telling the world. The night I got my I was on the phone with my parents, in-laws, and our siblings. And our close friends. :-D I can't wait to see whether you are having a boy or girl. It's always possible that they can't tell but the likelihood according to the person that did ours (owner of the company) is that they can if they are properly trained. He said in all his years of doing sonos he has only not been able to tell the gender 2x.
I can't imagine how upset it must make you to see your finger at the same time but I am sure over time the happiness over expanding your family will overshadow the sadness of your finger. Your LO is going to keep you so busy!
thanks sheryl, its funny I have no urge to tell people! I guess I just want to see everything looks ok at the 20 week scan then share it. Our close families know, just not extended and some friends.
so Ive decided not to find out as hubby really doesnt want to, we will find out if we have a 2nd (will be more exciting then anyway to find out if same or different). We debated it over Easter Dinner and everyone said wait except his sister who would have to find out! it will drive me crazy though! but I want to do as a couple.
and you are right, right now nothing much is happening as I dont feel the baby and not showing, once it all start happens it will overshadow my injury. Im ok when I dont have to look at it, guess I will be wearing a bandaid for the rest of my life!!
