Midwife Appointment

I went to see my midwife today as a follow-up from the ER. I got to hear the little one's heartbeat (in the 140s), and we had a good talk. She assured me that second-trimester miscarriages are very rare. She also told me not to stress my body out, but also wanted to clarify that everything is out of my hands. She really wanted me to understand that if I do miscarry, it's not my fault. I get what she's saying, but it's still not something I want to think about or deal with emotionally yet.

We set up an ultrasound for tomorrow morning with Pediatrix/Obsentrix, who have the really high-quality equipment. She's hoping we can see exactly what's wrong by going there.
