pregnant ass-kicking
1. How far along are you? - 15w3d

2. What symptoms are you experiencing? - Massive congestion, and occasional tummy flutters that I try to convince myself are the baby. The last few days, it's been a LOT of exhaustion as well.

3. Any appointments this past week and how did they go? - I had an appointment with the midwife a week ago tomorrow where I got the Fat Chat, drilled about GD and my choice with respect to RhoGam, and had my uterus palpated by three different midwives. It was decided that while I should be measuring about midway between pubic bone and navel, I'm measuring roughly AT the navel. An "Urgent, non-emergency" ultrasound was scheduled. As my mother is a twin, and her mother gave birth to two sets of twins... I went with it, despite reservations. That was today, and there is only one very wiggly baby in there. Plus, as I've been saying the baby is about 15 weeks gestation. Nobody listens to me - I'm just the charting fool who knows when she conceived. 9.9;;

4. Any appointments coming up? - Not until the end of the month, unless something came up very wrong in the scan.

5. Anything big happening in your personal life? - So far, not a lot. There is work stress, as usual, and I'm trying to ignore it before it spikes my blood pressure. It's all pretty normal. We have a family party thing on the weekend, which we drive an hour and a half to get to and then again to get home from, but that's about all I've got.

6. Questions, comments, complaints, observations? I had a day of feeling like the end of a swimming pool - swish, thump, flutter away... But haven't felt anything since then. But, I haven't been bored and sitting still since then either, so no surprise. At this point, I'm just happy to have ONE "big" baby, no matter how high up I may carry. I think twins at this point... might just freak me out. Also worth noting, I've got a head cold on top of the pregnancy congestion. This? Not so much fun.
