So, it turns out my math is really bad. According to the doctor I am only 7 weeks and 3 days since my last period. Woops. Here I was thinking I was already somewhere between 8-9 weeks. Yikes. I'm nowhere near out of the water for miscarriage.
I liked the doctor. He was coridial and quick without making me feel rushed. He went ahead and did an ultrasound since I didn't really know when my last period was since I'm irregular. He said judging by the size of my baby he thinks I might be more like 6 weeks along, but he couldn't really tell and I go back in 2 weeks to get another u/s to get more accurate info. It's wierd to find out you are not as far along as you think. But I don't know why I'm in such a rush. So, for now I'm calling it 7 weeks along. I was going to try and scan the ultrasound pictures, but they were so black I didn't think it'd work. Hearing the heartbeat was awesome. He said I have a tilted uterus so it was hard for him to find the baby at first and I was so worried, it was such a bad feeling - what if I'm not preggo, just crazy! But then there it was and I could totally see the little flash of the heart just a pumpin away. The doctor gave me the go ahead to keep running long distance and said I could do crunches, I wasn't sure about that. I can't wait until Sept 17th when I go back!
