Second ultrasound tomorrow...

....at 1:40 PM-MT. I'm hoping for the best...but bracing for the worst. It's what I have to do to guard my heart, ya know? I'm supposedly 7 wks, 3 days today, according to my LMP, but of course my LO's growth is off by a few days.

I will say though that for some reason, my bbs have become more tender over the past 2 days, as well as my nipples, with off and on queasiness, still peeing a lot, and my tiredness is continuing. I'm really not sure what to make of all this though. I'd so like to take it as a good sign, but with my last loss, I started to get queasy and such on the very day that I had my last ultrasound...and we lost her anyway. The OB said that while my hormone levels were probably rising, it had no bearing on her growth. I know I must just sound like the most pessimistic person who ever walked the planet (I'm really not though...when it comes to other things), but after being burned twice last year...it's so hard for me to stay hopeful.

I've always been that way - think of the worst and hope for the best. It seems that I held my breath for the first 13 weeks of this pregnancy. And we didn't announce to family until after we had a clean u/s at 18 weeks. The great news is you are able to get pregnant..alot of times that is more than half the battle for us 40+, KWIM?
