We made it through the first trimester :). My husband wanted to do the first trimester screening (NT scan + heart scan + bloodwork) and the Harmony Test (blood test for changes in the number of chromosomes). The scan was perfect, now we wait for the lab results. I enjoyed the scan (they had such a great ultrasound machine -> perfect pictures and we now know the sex of the little one already ;), but I don’t like waiting for the lab results. We’ll get them in the middle of next week. If everything is fine, we finally share the news at work etc.
Our families already guessing if it’s a boy or girl, but we won’t tell them - it’s real fun ;).
I’m feeling very good physically (had some nausea and was veeery tired, both has improved a lot), but I can’t shrug off all the doubts. Of course the critical early weeks are over, but as I’ve worked in Gyn/OB the last 7 years I’ve also seen the rare cases. Can’t talk with my husband about that (normally he’s the one who worries and he is just happy at the moment - I don’t want to destroy that). And I know that those fears are irrational. Most of the pregnancies / births going I’ve seen over the years went well. But of course the bad experiences are stuck in my brain.
Also I’ve got a kind of ‘survivors guilt’ overcoiming infertility. I still follow many TTC blogs and I just hope that all of them will be pregnant soon. This community helped me a lot.
I guess I’m getting a little hormonal at the moment (one day absolutely happy and on the next I can’t belive in our luck) But that’s normal in pregnancy I guess :).
