My first OB appointment was on Wed and it was a rough morning leading up to it. I was all nerves and almost in tears over the worry of having to relay Jack's story and fight for the tests I needed to have done for this new baby. For the first time it was all for not.
My new doc seems very good. I didn't have to say anything or insist on anything. She is very pleasant and seems to really know what she is doing. She already knew all about my medical history and Jacks and she had a plan of action before I even talked to her about it. This included all the tests I need. So I will have all the non evasive tests for Down Syndrome, I also have a regular ultra sound set up for May 4th and sometime within the next two months I will travel to the BC Children's Hospital to have an echocardiography. She even has a plan for my delivery to make sure I will hopefully avoid the hemorrhaging complications I had last time and to make sure there is no way I wont be in major labour for 54hrs. She thinks alot of that was caused because they tried to induce and force the labour. She is even already ordering all the blood to have on hand for my transfusions. She seems very prepared and she is also going to see me once a month for check ups.
I also got to listen to the babies heartbeat which she said sounds good and strong. There is no greater relief than that.
We are also waiting for another new addition to our family. A little girl kitten that wont be ready to come home with us until the end of May. Squirt has been lonely since her old companion ( nasty, nasty people hating cat) passed away a month ago. This cat always provided company for Squirt but other than that over all those years never had anything to do with us. So we aren't to torn up about it. It's weird though as we will be bringing this kitten home about the same time we brought Squirt home when I was pregnant with Jack. Its feels like history is repeating itself and that is a scary thought.
For now I am grasping my small relief and holding onto to it tightly to keep those positive wheels of thought turning.
I am still and always breathing you my baby. Jack and Mummy forever
