Our first official OB appt (the other one was to meet and get to know the dr.) was last Wednesday. The vampires took my blood, I stood on a scale and cringed at the weight -- I gained so much while cycling for two months in a row that I don't even want to see the numbers right now -- had a Pap and the usual full exam, and chatted with the Dr. some more. Unfortunately, while the Dr. thought we would be able to do some fancy test with the blood, she was mistaken and the blood was taken all for naught. Oh well.
They fished around for the heartbeat with the doppler for what seemed like forever, and made me sore, even though I assured them my uterus was too far back to find it. So we trecked over to the sono room to have a quick peek and heard the heartbeat. I think, forgive me if I have to come back and correct it, it was 172bpm. Baby Roo looked great, of course!
I also got a flu shot. I hate those things. My arm was sore for 2 or 3 days. Oh well, at least that's one less thing to worry about.
I, unfortunately, was in a hurry after my appointment so I couldn't stay long to chat with L, I wish we could have. She gave my family some beautiful gifts for valentine's day and my oldest's birthday, and gave me a really cute shirt and some chocolate (that I can't find now!!!) and a card with a hilarious note and some wine for Shane, "to deal with [her] craziness." hehe
All in all, great appointment! We have a screening appointment next week at a different doctor, with a really detailed ultrasound, I can't wait to see how Baby Roo has grown!
As for me... I'm doing okay. I'm more than ready to be off these meds and to find the right pre-natals. The meds combined with the wrong pre-natals were killing me. And I'm pretty excited that the first trimester is almost over, I am ready to get some energy back. And eat. Real food. Right now I crave noodles, tuna sandwiches (only allowed once a week), chicken noodle soup, bagels and cream cheese, peanut butter, fruit smoothies and mint chocolate chip ice cream. Everything else is pretty much an aversion. This baby share's it's momma's disinterest in any thing bacon, or anything meat really. I can tolerate chicken, and turkey has been okay. But other than that, everything has not been tolerated well. Chocolate by itself is one of those. I'm so sad!!
This week was L's birthday, and unfortunately, I couldn't get her anything right then, but I will make it up to her ;) I hope that she had a great birthday at least!
Anyway, this blog is about over... I will be blogging later this week because we're coming up on a special day! :) Have a great week until I post again! <3
