Three appointments today (including mine). I hope they all go well. I just got back from mine. Nothing too exciting... I've been through it 3 times before. Just a talk with the nurse about what foods you can eat, what meds you can take, etc. They drew like 8 or more vials of blood and made me pee in a cup. I was hoping she would magically send me for a surprise u/s since she did with DS2 (only because I didn't have AF between my m/c and conceiving him, so it was for dating purposes). Anyway, no surprise u/s today, booo! Oooh well, haha. I suppose I can wait 13 more grueling days.

Sounds like a good appt! You can do this.. 13 days is nothing... She didn't see or question anything? No concerns? That's a GREAT appointment!!

Just got back from mine too. The nurse said that is ridiculously common to bleed after sex and since it was barely a brown spec on the tissue at this point it was fine, but to stay away from Dh for a while. Since that was my current plan anyhow, no big surprise there, lol. She gave me my bag of goodies, answered questions, gave me paperwork, then decided to add a bunch of extra blood work because of my son's history and my GD history. I guess I will find out how soon I have to really start watching my sugars. Oh, and then the checkout lady handed me the paper about insurance and what we owe, OMG! We were on medicaid with Jack so we paid nothing (thank God because his NICU bills were astronomical!) But since the baby is Due next year, we have to pay the deductible and OOP expenses twice (about 4800) Geez o Pete!

no 4800 together, lol. It is a 400 dollar deductible and a 2000 dollar OOP maximum. So we have to meet the deductible twice (once for this year, once for next), then pay 80% of any bills till we hit $2000 both for this year and next.

My appointment went great too! Since I only had two periods since my IUD was removed and didn't know my cycle length the NP got me an ultrasound! Totally wasn't expecting that, but she figured I was anywhere between 8-10 weeks and she said she wanted to know so she knew when to bring me back next time for the triple screen. I conveniently left out the fact that I temped and was pretty certain I was 8w, 5d. The ultrasound showed only one baby (phew!) and predicted 8w, 4d so, pretty darn close! I could see the heart immediately, rate was 180. CRL was 2 cm. So freakin fun Smile it feels a bit more real now. Also did blood work, asked all my GD questions and saw the financial lady. I just got home from a grueling day at work, but I'll try to get a pic of the US uploaded soon. Next appointment Oct 30 with US for nuchal translucency.

I'll never complain about my insurance again.. I pay one $15 copay the first visit and nothing again the rest of the pregnancy.

Plus my Dr is in network so I have no OOP expenses to meet.

I have an appointment this Tuesday - my OB likes to see patients again if she first saw them early on in the preg. Pretty sure I'll get an u/s again Smile Yay!

Wow, I *finally* have my appointment tomorrow. It feels like I've waited forever! I was in the OB's office several times before this point with my last pregnancy due to all the bleeding. Of course I would NEVER want to go that route again, but waiting to see the doc has felt much longer by comparison this time.

I'm trying to figure out what to do. We don't really have anyone here that we can leave our DS's with. DH is a SAHD, so it hasn't been an issue really. I want DH to come to the appointment with me so he can see the u/s, but it's really going to be hectic to take both boys with us. Ugggh... What to do?

So exciting your appt. is tomorrow! It's hard to take the boys to these appts. We took DS2 with us and was really hard to keep under control. You do what you have to do, and I'm sure you can manage. I'm definitely going to get a babysitter for these appts. next time.

Update: I moved my 10/30 appointment to 10/31 so DH could be there. I hate to wait an extra day, but since they will do an US, I know DH wants to come.

Mary - That's awesome that your DH is a SAHD, mine is too;)
He drives me to all my appointments but never comes inside because he can't handle medical stuff. He faints very easily. lol

My first prenatal appointment is tomorrow! I think it's just to do medical history and take blood work though so nothing too exciting.

2 appointments this friday and an ultrasound for Maddie, woohoo!

I just had to reschedule my appointment because of work, but it worked out better. I'll be one day shy of 15 weeks for my next appointment, and that means my appointment after that, I'll be 19 weeks... I'm really hoping to get my BIG u/s then, BEFORE Christmas! (early Christmas gift to me Lol
