I had my 18 week appointment today and it went well. I met another doctor in the office because mine was out doing an c-section. I told her I was worried about lack of movement and she said I'm probably just too busy with the other kids to notice the lighter movements but should feel peanut in a week or so.
She told me that urine, bp, and weight gain looked good. I mentioned I was anxiously awaiting my u/s, but that it wasn't for another 8 weeks. She said, "Well, you are measuring a bit small. How about we get you in for an u/s next week?" Then she smiled at me I doubt she would have said anything if I had mentioned my anticipation, but at the beginning of my pregnancy, peanut measured about 6 days behind what I thought was my due date, so I'm not too alarmed yet. She knew my insurance didn't cover an u/s unless it were requested by the doctor. I am super excited!!! I thought I would have to wait another 8 weeks to see this little booger. I'm just praying for a healthy peanut, so hopefully I get good news!
All in all, a great appointment! I go back in 4 weeks for my routine checkup, and then I get to schedule my 4D u/s!!
