26 weeks, 2 days
Friday morning I had an appointment with my peri.
Basically, we spent about 15 minutes talking about my concerns, symptoms, things that were going on and what they mean (or don't mean).
Then 5 minutes of listening to the lowercase's heartrate (140 bpm) followed by a 15 minute pelvic exam. The cervix was tightly closed, mucus plug intact. No evidence of yeast or any other infection. All looks good. My uterus was measured and is exactly as it should be for this point in pregnancy.
After that I had to have a flu shot. My arm hurts like a bitch and I'm extremely sluggish and sick feeling all over today. I've gotten a flu shot every year for the last 10 years and never have any reactions or issues as a result; hooray for this year.
My next appointment is in 2 weeks. I have to do the 1 hour glucose tolerance test then. Not looking forward to that. They did send the nasty looking stuff I have to drink home with me so that I can drink it before going in and get it over with the second I walk in. And after nearly 4 weeks we'll finally get another ultrasound. I have to say, I've missed being able to look at my little boy.
I'm still quite nervous about everything, but since it all looks good so far I'm going to try to be calm. I'm doing my best, which frankly isn't all that great sometimes. The one thing I keep reminding myself is that now that I've hit 26 weeks, there are more positive outcomes than negatives and his chances increase by 2-3% every day he stays in between now and 28 weeks.
