Week 11 – Almost end of first trimester!!! also, telling dad!

Doppler

So i forgot i had another blood test yesterday so i have to do it today. Its for my thyroid i believe. I also called my doctor as i was meant to see her at 10weeks which has been and gone with no call from her. I believe she forogt but i left a message for her on tuesday and its now friday and still no call…Im getting edgy as i get closer to the 12weeks scan (which will actually be at 13weeks because of christmas) as we have had a few women who went and found out bub stopped growing a few weeks ealier. Very sad and making me nervious! So i finally bit the bullet and ordered a doppler. A doppler is an at home, handheld device that measures the babys heartbeat using ultrasound (makes me think of Sheldon from Big bang theory when he dressed up as the doppler effect lol). Its not very powerful so can often be hard to find babys heat but it will give me peace of mind if it works. Plus it was only $80.

Symptoms: Cramping and shooting pains in tummy. I think its from sitting for too long but also read it may be from dehydration so will be drinking more water. Nipples have started hurting again.

Baby: Getting big, is now 5cm |…………………………………………………….| about this big. Looking like a little person now. Has started doing womb gymnastics but i wont feel it for a few weeks yet.

It told my dad and brother last night. Brother said congrats but dad is in shock i think haha it went like this:

Showed dad the ultrasound pic

Dad: Whats this

Me: Your grandchild

Dad: *looks at it* Who? You?

Sigh no dad a random is giving you a grandchild. Then all he could say was that he didnt know what to do with that information. My brothers girlfriend was the most excited haha she is so cute. BD was a little alarmed i think and when we left asked me if thats how i thought dad would react because his parents were super excited and gushing where as dad didnt really comment at all. Dad got all emotional when my sister turned 30 this year so i think he is just remembering that we arent his babies anymore 😛 Then BD told him the story of how he hit a guy at work in the head with a shovel, not helping honey! Oh well, thats all the family, now just to tell friends once that scan is done 🙂 6.5months to go!
