Such a bittersweet day. I woke up this morning feeling rather negative about things. I know, shocking, right? This whole symptom thing has thrown me for a loop. I guess I just always assumed the symptoms would get worse no matter what, but they sure haven't! They most definitely come and go.
Work was crazy this morning. I got stuck in another building waiting for someone that showed up 30 minutes late. I drove back to my building and my fabulous boss met me in the parking lot with my purse, a bottle of water and a banana, handed me my keys and sent me on my way. S and I met up at our usual spot and got on the freeway...and stopped. Traffic was horrendous. So here I was late, flustered and starving. Ugh...I could have screamed.
We arrived 10 minutes late - a good recovery if I do say so myself. As I sat in the waiting room, my legs were literally shaking from the nerves. We got called back, and as soon as Dr. H walked in the room I started crying. I was SO scared. Seven weeks. Here we were at seven weeks again. Seven weeks was when I found out that baby #1 needed a miracle to make it. Seven weeks is when I had a D&C for baby #3. Seven weeks is a HUGE milestone for us. And man...what a milestone it was!
Baby A and Baby B both measured in at 7 weeks 1 day. Baby A had a heartbeat of 144 and Baby B had a heartbeat of 150. My babies actually GREW. What a concept! And then she said it...I don't think we need to see you again. Say huh? I graduated? But...but...I was going to bake cookies? My little chin was on the ground - happy as can be, but sad too. I mean, I've been seeing these fabulous people pretty much bi-weekly since April of 2008. They've watched me go through SUCH a fight to get where I am. They've celebrated my ups and they've let me cry on their shoulders during the downs. And now I'm done seeing them? Bittersweet for sure. RSC has been fabulous to me and I can't WAIT for my babies to meet the people that helped us bring them into this world.
So without further ado...here are my little bugs! I am SO in love already!!!
