After our little scare at the viability scan we had at the clinic 11 days ago, we went to EPU (Early Pregnancy Unit) after our GP fortunately referred me, today. I wasn’t sure if they would scan me, as I had no actual bleeding but luckily they didn’t turn me away and this time everything was PERFECT!!! Look at our little baby (we secretly took a photo of!)! He (we’re referring to him/her as a he even though we have absolutely no preference, just a feeling he’s a boy) looks completely different to last time! Last time he was just a little blob with a heart half his size, now he has an actual head and body and little arms!! He was wriggling around like crazy and his heart is beating beautifully! He has a CRL of 19.6mm which is still a little behind but nothing to worry about and more importantly the bleeding around the sac has all disappeared! It must have been absorbed by my body, it’s such a relief! We are just so in love right now!
Aside from that, I am feeling sicker than ever. Constant deep nausea ALL day long. And I’m soooo exhausted! Oh, and my GP rang me up while I was eating lunch with my friends to tell me that I have thrush (apparently common in pregnancy)- charming!! But I’m genuinely grateful for all of this now that I know that baby is doing so well 🙂 One thing I’m not grateful for is the stupid cold I got from work due to the air con making it like working inside a bloody fridge 😦 But tomorrow is London Pride so I’m hoping we can at least go along and watch the parade! Happy Friday 🙂
