One for the LCSW to see if I was a candidate for Postpartum depression (I'm not), one with a doctor, and one with a midwife. The M/W made me go through another Pap even though I'd just done it in December and everything came back shiny and clear. Ugh. I hated that. And she was MEAN about the whole thing too. Way meaner than my normal doctor. Then I saw another doctor who isn't my regular but was very very kind and very sweet and he did an ultra sound. I'm measuring about a week ahead of what they said originally which is closer to what I thought it should be. They said if the growth continues to stay ahead they will change my due date officially to a November day. Yeah! As of right now, if it was 40 weeks exactly I'd be December 1. I originally thought November 25-27 so I'm hopeful.
I got to see ten perfect fingers, ten perfect toes and hear an amazingly loud and fast heartbeat. End of first trimester here we come! Oh I also got my amniocentisis and next check up scheduled for June 21 and 22. Eeek.
Wow that is a lot of appointments. Do you have to go back to that same MW??? If so, hopefully she will be nicer... maybe she was just having an off day??? (fingers crossed). I'm glad everything went so well, and yay for seeing baby I've only had once US and that was my dating one... 7, almost 8 weeks ago... crazy how fast it goes. May I ask why you had the amnio??? Those needles scared the crap out of me when they had talked about wanting to do one with my first... so I oped out. That, and the only reason the specialist wanted me to do one was because of me having OI and the 50/50 chance that the baby COULD have it. Ummm... I have OI, and I am doing just fine thank you very much. Oh, and she also brought up "would you really want a baby with OI AND downs???" Would I love them any less??? come on now. Plus, I was only 21 at the time... yeah, I didnt go back to her. Any who. Enough rambling...
I'm glad that everything is checking out, and that you're dates may be moving up YAY FOR NOVEMBER BABIES
Yay for seeing the baby! That's a lot of appts.

I'm grateful I won't have to see that M/W again. With my health history they prefer I see an actual OB/GYN and it's rare that I won't see her. Shockingly last week with all those apppointments I didn't get one with her... But its okay. Next month is with her again. I'm pretty sure that was just the M/W's personality. I haven't seen one there that I liked. They're all cold and hostile and just bark orders at you. My doctor knows me, knows my history, knows my son and knows my limits so she works things out with me and talks it over with me before barking out orders. I like that a lot better.
I wish I had a scanner so I could show you all the pictures but I'll live till then. All I know is he is a cutie!!! (Or shes a cutie????)
So excited to be approaching the second trimester this week and really hoping that energy returns soon. My goal is to be completely unpacked by the time he comes and thats never going to happen if the exhaustion keeps up. We've been in the house for 7 months now and we're still in the process of unpacking. I'm beginning to think it's never going to happen.
