I haven’t posted in 5 days. I was planning to though this past weekend, but I wasn’t doing so well. We had a miscarriage scare starting Saturday, it got better on Sunday, but it became worrisome again yesterday (Monday). I’m on complete bed rest as of today, and it seems to be helping.
I can definitely feel that even the slightest activity is putting a strain on this pregnancy, so I’m just not going to risk it. I really had to muster up the will and courage to take today’s picture.
Our bug now looks like a baby dinosaur! All the basic facial features are now starting to develop; such as the eyes, ears, nose, etc. It’s now half a centimeter big. The umbilical cord is slowly starting to develop as well.
Since the scare though, I have to admit that my enthusiasm has crashed pretty low. I’m now realizing that a positive pregnancy test doesn’t necessarily mean that I’ll have a baby 9 months later.
Right now, I really don’t know if I’ll be holding a baby in my arms in September. I just have to be patient now and hope for the best. The first ultrasound is in 2 weeks. It feels like an eternity. And I know there’s no point scheduling an appointment sooner, because it’s too early to detect a heartbeat anyway. All they’ll be able to tell me is that the baby is still there; which I already know. *sigh*
Hang in there, little one!
