GP Dr. Appt today *update post 7*

I had my general practitioner doctor visit this afternoon.

I have cloudy urine so I asked them to test my pee. They are sending it to the lab, the nurse isn't sure whats in it but there is something there.

The doctor prescribed me prenatals and zofran in case I start getting sick. I am excited to have meds early I do not want to throw up as much as I did with Nicholas.

I had a quant blood draw for HCG numbers. I am pretty sure they are sending me back Wed so I can see if my numbers double. I really wanted this because I work with some nasty things (I am avoiding them this week in secret) but I really have to tell my boss and would like doubling numbers to give me confidence to tell them about the pregnancy.

I showed the dr. my chart and he was impressed Smile He used to be an OB so he was "in the know" about everything.

Downside- I am starting this pregnancy 15lbs heavier than I did with Nicholas. I knew that was the case....but it still sucks. My plan is to eat super healthy and not gain much weight in the first tri and beginning of the 2nd tri. I gained a healthy 28 lbs with Nicholas and that was with tons of swelling. I plan to do the same this time around!

:icecream: to all who got this far.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I'm PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I understand about the weight thing! I also am starting about 15 lbs heavier with this baby than I was when I had my daughter. I gained 22 lbs with her and I am hoping to stay in the 25-30 lbs range with this one.

Carolyn- I am a chemist at a pharmaceutical company. I work in the lab around a lot of chemicals so I need to get away from certain types ASAP Smile Luckily I didn't work with anything that bad during the 2w.w. so I feel good about this!

Just got off the phone with the nurse:

Hcg- 48 11 DPO. That would have put my HCG around 25 when I tested last Saturday at 9dpo. The doctor said it was so high they have no worries and don't want to do a repeat beta. I am ok with that because I feel sick to my tummy today and have all the pg signs. There isn't anything they can do right now if things didn't look good so I am going to roll with it.

Urine was clear of infection, probably just CM the nurse said.

My boss is here today at work- I'm going to tell him. .....eeek! Nervous!

Ok- He took it well. Before I said anything he said "you got another job, didn't you" so at least his guess was wrong. We are waiting to tell our group leader (his boss) until after my appointment on May 5th.

I had to tell because he was talking about projects I should be working on next week after the holiday. Two of them were with stuff I can't be around :eek: I really didn't have a choice Sad
