Tomorrow is the re-try for the nuchal fold scan. It’s been two weeks since my last try (and the babies were only a hair too small then), so there shouldn’t be any problem getting the measurements this time. And I’m really anxious. Most people that I interact with on a regular basis know that I’m pregnant. There’s no hiding it. I’m wearing maternity blouses nearly exclusively right now. The only reason I’m still wearing my regular skirts is that I lost 19 pounds in my last pregnancy and 15 pounds at the beginning of this pregnancy, and I’ve only gained back about 2 pounds so far. Anyway, the point is, everyone knows I’m pregnant at this point, for the most part. And if something happens tomorrow… I just don’t want to have to go through “un-telling” anyone.

So I’m nervous. Even though I’m sure everything is fine.

Also, I feel like hell. It’s already hard to breathe if I’m doing anything but lying down. My hips are killing me. I have unbelievably ridiculous cramping (which I’m still deciding not to worry about). My migraines are completely uncontrollable. And I’m a big whiner and I hate whining, so now I’m whining about the fact that I’m being a big, annoying whiner! I’m 13 weeks today and I seriously have no idea how I’m going to manage to work until 19/20 weeks, which is when I was told to expect not to be able to work anymore. I’m just not sure I’m going to make it that far. It’s already so hard for me to sit, stand, walk, whatever. I’m half-considering renting a scooter to get me through a few extra weeks of work, but the rest of me thinks, you know… having another few weeks off of work wouldn’t KILL me…

And, um, that’s all there is to report. Hopefully there will be more after my perinatology appointment tomorrow for the nuchal fold.
