My 18 week scan.
I would like to say my visit was a pleasant one, but it left me feeling upset. The baby is perfectly healthy, but I received negative comments about weight that upset me. We also found out our doctor doesn’t tell patients the gender until you are 30 weeks along. Anywhere else in the world, you find out at least by 20 weeks. I won’t know until the last week of May… :(
Also, the weight comments… I love you Japan, but women don’t have to be one size! Pre-pregnancy, my weight was 95 lbs. I now weigh 101 lbs. I’ve only gained 6 lbs and I am 18 weeks pregnant. I was told ‘I don’t need to gain any weight’ before my next appointment on April 3rd. Sure, I’ll be glad to cut back on my reasonable healthy diet…GAH.
I need to get over the negative parts of today. I had expectations and I should learn to not have them. I saw my baby moving a lot and a small hand curl near his/her face. I just need to have a good cry and take a nap.
