We had our second ultrasound today.. I went to my OB's new office and the staff there is fantastic!! As I was laying there, the Dr. called Christian over to look at the screen and then she turned it so I could see. And there it was... the heartbeat! I immediately burst into tears and the nurses started getting teary eyed! haha I just couldn't believe it.. We have waited for this so long and right when we had decided to quit trying for awhile, it happened. It still seems so surreal.. and it hasn't sunk in yet.
I'm going next week to tell me old coworkers and I am so excited about it! They know all about my infertility and knew each time I went to the Dr., etc. I was very open with them all about our struggle and my boss is also infertile and was never able to concieve.. So I know she is going to be ecstatic! I'm trying to think of a creative way to tell them.. I just graduated and they think I'm coming back to show gradation pictures. So, I may get some graduation pictures and take a copy of the ultrasound and put them all into envelopes and give them to them as a group. Not sure yet, but that's just an idea.
I found out that I have to do daily shots in my stomach, due to my blood disorders. Problem is, I went to get the prescription filled, and insurance denied it. So, the Dr. has to call and explain why I have to have this, etc. And if they still refuse, I will have to pay out of pocket.. all $350 of it.
In two weeks, I am going to a materal fetal medicine specialist to discuss the blood disorders and my pregnancy in general, since I am more on the "high risk" side. And then that same day, I go back to my OB for another ultrasound and bloodwork.
And while I'm waiting for these next appointments to come, I need to study for my boards exam and register to take it and also pay all of the fees associated with getting my license. I hope it doesn't end up to be as much of a pain as it seems it's going to be.
