So I have always thought once you are preggers than that’s it. But now that im reading things online its freaking me out. There is a good chance that it can just go away in the first two months. Miscarriage risk is super high for the first 4 months. Then I am hearing stories from friends who have lost their bubs at 6-9months for no reason. Its seriously giving me a complex! I know that in all likely hood everything will be fine but until I get this first few doctors appointments over and done with and get things confirmed im nervous and don’t really believe that its happening.
I am reading up and didn’t realise I need an OB. I thought that your GP handled the whole thing. So now I have an appointment at the GP for Thursday. She will give me a referral to an OB and for a blood test. The week after ill have my blood test and hopefully get in for my first OB appointment which are monthly apparently. So until that’s all done I don’t think I will believe it. I even took another test just to make sure it wasn’t a chemical pregnancy…I know. So this is my current to do list:
4/11 Week 6: GP appointment
11/11 Week 7: Blood test first OB appointment?
5/12 Week 10: Ultrasound
23/12 Week 13: Tell family and friends we are expecting/ end first trimester
I am also wondering when is a good time to start seriously shopping. I think it will have to be after Christmas so past the 4month mark. Maybe after 6months (March)? That gives me time to save up and get one big ticket item a pay. Plus this will be my parents first grand child so im expecting a fair amount of financial gifts from them. Maybe a big ticket item each. If you are wondering what I consider a big ticket item, Crib, pram, car seat. Im expecting each to be between $100-$500.
BD and I have also been talking names. He likes Jasmine for a girl where as I like Molly. We both like Reuben James for a boy but he wants to shorten it to Ben like his grandad where as I want to leave it as is. Its kind of freaky actually I have a friend named Reuben and had a dream about him last night, then today BD told me that Ben was short for Reuben. It think its a sign 🙂 Im still expecting twins but will have to wait for the 10weeks scan to know. Also how cool is the bag/bed opposite? Getting one for sure.
