3rd Ultrasound

Yesterday's ultrasound looked great (7w2d). Baby is growing right on schedule. It's funny how the sound of the baby's heartbeat stops any conversation going on in the room. What an amazing, reassuring sound. The doctor and I discussed the cerclage again and it looks like it will be scheduled on August 10th. I have to say that the thought of going under general anesthesia makes me a little nervous but I know this cerclage needs to be done so I'm going to keep my chin up and go for it.

We also discussed releasing me to my OB after the procedure. I can't wait to be released. I love my RE's office and will miss them dearly however moving on to a regular OB is such a great milestone. I keep thinking that once I get to the OB, I will only have seven months to go (Only, haha).

Work hasn't really changed. I got pulled into our accountants office a few days ago to ask why I'm asking around for work when we just landed this huge project. Good question because we have plenty of work that needs to be done on it. When I told her I was told I could only bill 15 hours per week to the project and that I needed to find other billable work or bill my additional time to admin, she nearly fell out of her chair. She told me to ignore my boss's instructions and bill all time I have spent on the project, even if it's over 15 hours. It puts me in a odd position. I'm going against direct orders from my boss and I think that just makes me look bad. I wish they could act like adults around here and just talked to each other about it instead of using me as a pawn. I guess that's just the MO of the company. Interestingly, the accountant told me that there has been some serious dicussion with upper management about my childish manager and how he should not be in his position. I've heard this conversation more than once yet they haven't done a damn thing about it. Are there days where he seems like he is doing better. Yes. Has he started to act like a manager. No. How many years of will it take for them to see the big picture? I hoping I wont have to be around that long to find out the answer to that question.

I'm really sorry that your work situation is so strange and tense, but very happy to hear that the ultrasound went well. :)

Cerclage? That's one of those terms that sounds better than it is. It's all French and sounds like a really good pastry, but in reality...

So glad baby is growing like it should.

There's nothing like the sound of your baby's heartbeat, is there?

I'm sorry work is so rough. I hope it gets better soon.

It's the best sound ever! I cried the first time I heard my little girl's, which I did not expect to do. And I promise, the rest of your pregnancy is going to fly by - and you'll soon be holding your little one in your arms, wondering where the time went!
