Haemoglobin at 12.6, Blood sugar at 6.3 (sorry I didn't get the units). So I'm not anaemic and I don't have gestational diabetes. According to Dr OB, they don't need to test for GD again within this pregnancy, unless the passenger starts to grow too fast in which case they will look again. So I seem to be in good shape.
H was reflecting last night, as he admired my bump (he is very drawn to it but tends to restrict himself to just stroking it a little when we have a hug, I think he's scared it might bite him or something if he left his hands on it for longer), that it's really been quite a trouble-free pregnancy. And although my initial reaction was "are you kidding??? So the bleed at 13 weeks was just another day in our life???", I think he's right really. Yes, that day was terrifying, and yes, I have been tense on many other days, probably most days, but if you look back on it, other than the embryo being small at 6 weeks, and the bleed, everything else has been ok. The embryo/fetus always looked good from the 7 week scan onwards. All our scans have given us good news. The passenger has no obvious defects. I didn't have substantial nausea. I don't have gestational diabetes. I am not huge and uncomfortable (yet). I'm still sleeping well at night. The passenger kicks me on a regular basis.
I hate to type this as it's one of those gremlin-attracting posts, but I think we've been very lucky. Very lucky to conceive spontaneously given my age and my endo. Very lucky to have a healthy passenger (so far) given my age and what we've been through. Lucky I haven't been made ill by the pregnancy. Very lucky indeed. And today I feel lucky. And happy. And excited.
