11wks2days and freak outs

Ended up having a minor freak out this morning, so had them let me come into today instead of Tomorrow. Nombie is okay, although it is measuring a few days behind right now. Heart beat was good though, and Nombie kept doing a lot of flips. Like a lot. We didn't get any really great ultrasound photos because it was moving so much. Which is good... but still worried.

The second photo is of the clot (and Nombie's head arm, like it's waving and saying "Somebody help me!!!"). The clot is now 7.46x3cm. Great. It's grown yet again. And a big part of it is up by Nombie. Fantastic... UGH. Placenta and everything is fine, but it still sucks. I don't think this thing is going anywhere.... (*sigh*)

Before we left today, the office gave us this. Our appointment today may very well be our last one with our reproductive doctor... unless I have a major freak out before the NT scan on the 15th, and I NEED to see her. Which could very well happen.

She's been amazing, willing to go above and beyond for us, and just super understanding... I'm going to miss her so much :(

I'm so glad Nombie is doing so well! I'm so sorry you have to go through something so amazing with such a shadow hanging over your head. :( I hope that clot dissolves by the next time you see Nombie!
I freaked out all the time! It really threw me over when I left the RE to go to the OB! Fortunately our OB was just as understanding as the RE and let me come in and have ultrasounds as often as I needed to - which was a lot!

I'll take it as a good sign that you'll now being going to see the OB rather than the RE. I love the spoon they gave you as a gift. Good luck with the new doctors. I'm pulling for you and Nombie to win over the clot.

One of these days, Nombie is going to grow much, much bigger than that clot, and that clot is going to feel so dwarfed, that it will just disappear altogether!

I am so glad you went in. I know it only gave you a few moments peace. But I am glad you went. I wish and wish this could be easier.

Hi Nombie! How are you little fella?

I am glad Nombie is doing great. I am still in caution mode, and I know that you are in super caution mode.

Your RE's office gave you a spoon? Am I missing some significance here? I don't know.

You take care and keep being good and fighting off drama-monkeys!

Stacey, I hope my new OB is... if I make it that long. Still very scared.

Thanks ladies, I appreciate all the support.

MrsSpock, I certainly hope so!

St Elsewhere, a feeding spoon for a baby. Although it doesn't really seem that way, lol. It's the parting gift they give all their clients that are leaving them because they're pregnant.

I am so glad to see little Nombie hanging in there and doing lots f flips. Have you thought about installing a disco ball for him?

Seriously, it sucks that the clot for hell is still hanging in there but I'm keeping my fingers crossed and saying lots of prayers. My kids are praying for you too.

An active baby means a healthy baby. I am so happy for you!! And by the baby being small means it is a girl! LOL :) Did you try the doppler lying down yet? I am anxious to hear if it worked!

haven't been around much ((kinda chicken now that I'm pregnant)). I totally know where you're coming from though. It's hard to be optimistic or even just a little bit happy for this pregnancy when so much can be taken away. My husband is all giddy in every U/S but even now at 7 1/2 months I FREAK - he now knows better to try and "giddify" me. I haven't been through nearly as much as you have so I can't imagine but for's hard too.
