How cool is this???

So today had my 2nd prenatal appointment. everything went good. heard the heartbeat again and all of my labs were superb. going in today for this appointment i can say i was on the tad evil moody side from arguing with my mom. they could tell by my blood pressure but thats neither here nor there. anyhow i scheduled my anatomy scan and the doc had one ordered 5 weeks from now....i smiled at this and asked so the week of my birthday or the week after. my doc asked when my birthday was and i told her jan 9th. she upped my u/s order to the week of my birthday.

whats awesome about all of this??? i went to schedule it with the receptionist and she scheduled mine for jan 9th, my birthday. how about that...i lucked out and got my wish for the scan. so far this will be such an awesome gift- getting to see my baby on my birthday and mostly will know what im having for sure.

all and all i'm really starting to like the dr's office i chose and conincidence or not, this made my day. ironic but awesome;)

oh yeah my babys heartbeat was 153. keeps varying...all three so far were 166, 144, 153. anyone else keeping track?

Cool! That's a great birthday present. No one has told me my baby's heart rate, only that "Everything looks good". Hm.

What a great birthday gift-- good for you! That will be fun to see your baby.

Bummer about the BP issues-- hopefully you and your mom work things out.

Yay for your scan being on your birthday! That will be awesome!

So far with this one, HB has been 126 (6w3d) and 180 (8w3d) at my u/s. I didn't get a rate at my first OB appt the other week since she couldn't find it with the doppler. They found it right away with the u/s machine they brought in, but we couldn't hear or get a rate, just see it flickering since the machine was ancient. I have my NT scan on Friday, so I will get a rate then! It's fun to keep track. So far, this baby is close to my DS (had an u/s with him at 8w and it was 186). I'm curious to see how similar they will be! DS was always in the 150's/160's, so he totally debunked the old wives tale of high HR being a girl.

I'm so jealous your "big" u/s is the 9th! My 16 week appt isn't even until the 12th, and then I have 4 more weeks to wait after that! Boo!

yeah i really did luck out. jen that stinks youll have to wait till 20 weeks for yours. i'll be 18 weeks and 1 day for mine. with mine i didn't wanna go to my 18 week appointment then have to come back the next week for my u/s. so glad mine worked out for me.

as for my mom i'm doing all i can to get along with her. she really dislikes the fact i am talking to my dad after their nasty divorce years ago. (as if i had to pick loyalty and choose the better one? not going to happen.) shes mad that my dad wants to be a part of my kids life and that when i give birth hes gonna be there regardless if she is too. she didn't like it one bit. tried to tell it was either her or him. hmmm and i told her both, take it and like it. shes still mad the day after my appointment wont talk to me but whatever. she will come around. if not well her loss. i want my kids to know all of its family.
