Yes!

I get an ultrasound next Wednesday! I'll be 7 weeks and 2 days. I otherwise will not see my midwife until 12 weeks!

I called yesterday because I kept having these sharp, stabbing pains -- they didn't really feel like
RLP to me, from what I can remember (and also, this is pretty early for that -- but I have read that RLP can come on sooner with subsequent pregnancies, and this is the 5th time my eggo has been preggo), but anyway, these pains were almost wave-like, like contractions, sometimes coming on when I was just sitting there. Of course, this had me worried. I was drinking my water and not doing anything strenous. I explained to the nurse that when I had my 2nd loss, I was 12 weeks along before I found out, and I had no symptoms that the baby had stopped growing 3 weeks prior. So, a lack of bleeding or cramping means nothing to me.

The nurse was very nice, and she said she'd run it by a doctor (my midwife won't be in until Monday). She said it's not good to worry so an ultrasound is definitely something they could do for me (ESPECIALLY given my past history, because normally, they just do the standard 18 week one).

So yay! Wednesday at 1:20 p.m. CST. Think good thoughts!
