Two things have been prevalent on my mind this weekend. One, is pretty minor, but comes with weird fears. The other, well, its sort of major, I guess.
The first- I have my first dental "work" appointment in over 10 years tomorrow morning. I have 3 cavities that have to be filled. Unfortunately, I've put them off for a while, (one time I cancelled because I chickened out, the next time because the RE didn't want me to have any work done until I was out of my first trimester. Which, as a total aside, I will be out of tomorrow. woot!) I have this weird fear that its going to hurt really bad. I mean, I've had stuff done before. In fact, one of the cavities is simply a place where an old filling fell out. But, its been so long that a little fear has set in, I guess. I have even been dreaming about it the last few nights. Logically, I know its not a big deal. Emotionally, I have a sick feeling in my tummy. I don't want to go!
The second- I have my Nuchal Fold scan on Tuesday morning at 11:30 CST. I wasn't really all that nervous about it until yesterday. I started to get a little concerned that it seems like I haven't grown much, belly wise, in several weeks. It seemed like I bloomed rather quickly in the uterus department, and now there hasn't been much change. Of course, I'm concerned that this means there is a problem. I'm sure its fine. (again, the logic part of me tries to reason with the emotional part.) But, there's always this little voice in my head that says things can always go wrong. The trick is trying to take that little voice and make the best of my life, versus sulking in fear. Right?
Anyway, if any of you feel so inclined to say a quick prayer for me for my NT scan on Tuesday, that would be so great. As for the dentist tomorrow, I plan to take a muscle relaxer before I go. (just teasing... I think.)
