My appointment went horribly! I have deep veins, which makes it hard for ANYONE to draw my blood. She tried in both of upper arms and couldn’t find a good vein. I thought for sure I was going to have bruises from where she was hitting the creases in my arms. She then moved to my hands. She tried my right hand and was able to get a little before that vein blew. Then moved on to my left hand in between my knuckles, got a little and then that vein blew too. I’m not a wimp to pain but that damn in between the knuckles try, hurt like a you know what!
After that I moved into the exam room to hear the baby’s heartbeat and he couldn’t find it. I was freaking out. I could see the aggravation in his face and just started praying. He said he usually has problems with that Doppler so he went next door and got another and what do you know! I heard Baby E’s heartbeat. 156 beats per minute. I scheduled the autonomy scan to find out the sex for September 22nd at 8:30 a.m. After that horrendous appointment I treated myself to Chick Fil A and a long leisurely nap. I deserved it!
Check out my battle scars!
