Nombie was measuring right on track at 12 weeks 4 days. CRL was 6.24cm

I saw one of the doctors at the practice that I'd never met before, he's the one that does NT scans for all the patients.

The scan was really quick, he just measured everything and then left. I was pretty bummed. I didn't get to see any movement, hear or see the heart beat, and I didn't get to see how the Clot of Destruction is doing. Yeah, bummed may be putting it lightly. I know the scan was just for the NT purposes, but he could have taken more than a minute with it all. Seriously, it was over in a minute.

I would have loved a little more reassurance that my baby was alright, other than the fact that it's measuring on track.

I know, I sound a little whiny... but damn it, after everything I've been going through? I think I have a little bit of a right to.

I meet with an OB this Friday. Hoping that goes well... but not holding my breath.

Sometimes techs can be really callous folks. Time for them to get trained on bed side manners. I'd be upset too that I didn't get to find out more. A least Nombie is on track.

sorry about the professional people .. blahh makes you wanna kick them have a touch of care bedside manners for sure.
anyway hoping the OB will give you more time and maybe more pictures of nombie.. many hugs to you all :)

Glad Nombie is right on track. At my regular OB office, one doc takes his time with the ultrasounds and the other one is so fast you can barely see a thing!

Nombie is ADORABLE!

Sorry that doc didn't take the time with you he should have. But, I'm thrilled to hear Nombie is continuing to grow and thrive.

I am very sorry the doctor did nothing more than satisfy himself over all is right. A little reassurance would have been so good.

I am glad for Nombie and I don't even know what to say about the clot anymore.

Take Care!

go Nombie, go Nombie!!!

shame about the doc, its not like an extra 2 minutes probably would have made THAT much difference to his day, but a hell of a lot to yours

Glad its all loooking good (I know, this is today, tomorrow is tomorrow)

I have been a very long time lurker and many times have been tempted to leave a comment. But today seems a good a time as any.

First--blessings and congratulations on your pregnancy.

Second--might I offer a different way of thinking? I know how easy it is to get trapped in a mindset and sometimes a little different perspective can be most helpful. The tech who did your scan today treated you like a normal pregnant woman. Normal! How awesome is that! You were treated like one of the other thousands of woman for whom this is "just a routine procedure."

I'd also suggest this; relax. The worry and anxiety and what-ifs you are stressing about isn't going to change the outcome. All it does is steal your energy and focus. Being stressed and worried today won't make a loss any less painful. But it will erode the joy and happiness you will feel when you end up with a beautiful Nombie in your arms.

Take it one day at a time. If today you feel good-enjoy that. Be happy. Your body ISN'T trying to kill Nombie. Quite the contrary--it's fighting like hell to keep that little one safe and warm and tucked away til the time is right.

((Hugs)) I know my words are just ink on a page...but consider them. ASIDE from the blood clot---everything else is cooking along according to the recipe. Focus on that, Sweetie.

It's too bad he was so rushed. You have so few chances to see what is going on in there, it seems like they should take the time to tell you as much as they can. I am glad nombie measured normal. The photo is really incredible. Thank you for sharing it. Try to hang in there.

Nombie is so adorable! I'm sorry the doctor was so rushed, but that's awesome that Nombie is right on track!

I know that people mean well when they tell you to relax, but after all you have been through, I doubt most people would be able to. I do really hope that you will be able to feel joy with this pregnancy, but I know there will always be a nagging worry, because of the SCH and knowing what your sister went through.

I am so, so happy for you. You are in your second trimester! Nombie is growing and moving and everything!
