Finally going in for my 1st appointment! *UPDATED #7*

I'm finally getting my 1st appointment (canceled the original when the car broke down and then went out of town) and I am SO NERVOUS!

I didn't sleep a wink! I just want to hear the heartbeat! That will make me feel better. I know it's early though and there is still a chance that the MW won't find it and my home Doppler won't be delivered for at least another week so I am just trying not to chew off my nails.

I'm going in at 3pm and then we are taking the girls to walk around Saint Augustine and do a fun family portrait at the Old Time Photos, we plan on telling them if everything looks and sounds good at the appointment. I don't want everyone else to know before the girls. I hope my little one takes it well! I know the big one will be excited, at least until we find out the sex (she wants a brother only LOL) so okay, I will try to stop freaking out. I will update as soon as I get home.

Hugs to everyone!

My older one only wants a boy too. She said we have enough girls in the house ha ha. Although when I was pregnant with my 2nd (this is my 3rd) she only wanted a girl. When we found out we were having another girl she threw her fist in the air and yelled "Yes! Another girl for my kingdom!" Ha ha, even the dr laughed.

Hope everything goes well for you! Sending good thoughts your way!

Yahoo Found the heartbeat even though it took like 20 minutes because baby was doing flips or something hahaha She was laughing and saying, well, don't freak if I can't get a heartbeat but with movement like that, it's a good bet this is a healthy little baby!

So yes, HB was around 167-169 range - very steady and strong - even with a 2MHZ probe!

We had the kids so DH dropped me off at the office and went to walk around the store, he was freaking the whole time and called me during the appointment hahaha -

His question was 1 or 2? LOL He has his own nagging suspicions. I got orders to go in for my US anytime before my next appointment in November.

BP was great for being in the office 130/75 (normally office pressure for me is WELL above that)

Fundal height measuring at 16 weeks hahaha instead of 10 but this again is normal for me. Still gonna go in for an ultrasound as soon as they can fit me in, just to make sure the octopus in my tummy is just one octopus!. I'm gonna give them a call 1st thing tomorrow.

We are VERY excited. My oldest asked me if I was having a "waaaaaawaaaaaaa" and if it was 1 or 2 -- I didn't answer the question yet, I figure I will record their reactions and then share that with family so that they also know.

Okay, I really have to get to my homework as it's due before midnight and I haven't even started on my assignment. Thanks everyone for the cheers! Your awesome thoughts worked well and I did in fact have an awesome appointment!
