Breaking up

So I feel like I just broke up with someone...yesterday I was released from my RE's care and I have no more u/s appointments, no more blood draws or follow up appointments. It felt really weird leaving the clinic and saying goodbye to everyone--maybe because I felt like I've lived there for the last 7 months. I know this is not as long as other people, but I just felt this separation anxiety as I was checking out and waiting for my medical records to be printed yesterday. A part of me didn't want to leave the clinic--I know these people, I know the protocol. Now I have to go to my OB and it feels like getting to know someone new and learning all their quirks--it's like building a whole new relationship, I wonder if I the people are going to be as nice and as repsonsive. I know this is not the first time I am going to see my OB--I've been going there for 4 years, but I still feel like a stranger, especially since I only saw her once a year. Before we were officially released from the clinic, we saw Dr. K and he was really nice to us. He told me I am done with my progesterone (yeah!!), and no more baby aspirin! On the way out, he gave me a big hug and he wished us lucked!

On the p front--the baby is doing well, at 8w4d the baby is measuring at 8w5d. The heartbeat was at 161 bpm--which sounded good to us. Everything looks good and we are very happy about it. The baby was upside down yesterday, and every time the wand was hitting it's head, the baby was jerking his/her head. It was pretty funny--I don't think the baby liked us poking around there.

So, my new "relationship" doesn't start until July 12th. For now, I will just sit and wait until then. I have no idea what to expect with the first appointment or "date". I wonder if I will get an u/s at that point. I think I will go through withdrawal in terms of the u/s, I've been spoiled the last few weeks--with pictures and seeing/hearing the heartbeat.

Congrats on graduating to OB! I am sure that the transition to something unfamiliar will be strange and maybe a bit scary at first, but you'll get through. This is a milestone Momo. I am so excited for you! Hugs!

I know it must be scary, but what wonderful news! (I dream of the day I won't have to step foot in an RE's office again.) I giggled when I read the baby was upside down. What fun! It's amazing to think you've already had the opportunity to interact with your baby -- even if it was via the wand. What a miracle.

It was weird going back to my OB too. I don't think that people were rude at my OB's office, but they aren't as personal, they only know you from your chart. I'm glad to hear that the baby is doing well and has a strong heartbeat. I hope that your first OB appointment goes well.

I'd say thats a good breakup. Although I must admit it probably felt kinda strange...

Best of luck with your pregnancy!

IF'ers do get spoiled with alot of attention early in the pg. Either way, it's good to graduate and move on. The IF clinic is something I cannot wait to say good-bye to.
