Just back from my full anatomy scan, and although everyone tried as hard as they could, no one could find even ONE thing wrong. I kept asking, and asking, and going through the full list of organs to check, and everyone just kept grinning at me, and telling me the boy was fine!!!!
10 FINGERS 10 TOES AND A WHOLE ACTUAL WORKING BRAIN
Seriously, no funny dark spots, no cysts, my cervix is nice and long and closed, baby is moving nicely, with good flexion, all 4 chambers of the heart are ticking away, even all the little boy bits are in the right places, and bonus: no odd scary pauses from the tech.
Even my godawful fibroid is still shrinking and the placenta is still getting good blood flow. I am stupidly insanely overwhelmingly hysterically happy right now!!!
I don't know what tomorrow will bring, I don't know next week will bring, but for today, for now, I am so happy and grateful.
I'm definitely doing some shopping now, and not even the anti-stress NBHHY shopping. Hell, maybe fun-happy-pretend-I'm-a-normal-fertile-preggo shopping?
Geez, you don't think it's stepping over the line too much do you? To hope a little? I want to so badly, but I keep thinking it's wrong, that I'll just get slapped down again. Mr.Cotta is so certain that nothing can go wrong now. I think it's driving him nuts that I can't just relax. Of course, I think he is also tired of going to appointments and missing so much work, when every single appointment turns out so well. I think at some point I'll be apologizing to him for the total lack of drama!
And you know what? That's okay by me. I really really like being the boring pregnant story. I do. I had nightmares the last few nights that this was going to be another bad ultrasound, another disaster, another terrifying road to hell and sad decisions and bad news.
But it wasn't. I don't know how long the boring will continue, mind you. I need to talk with my Doc about how the rest of the pregnancy plan will go, all the L&D stuff I couldn't talk about without breaking down in sobs, but for today, boring me and a fine baby is nice.
Is this how normal people live?
