1st OB Appointment

Work went pretty fast today! After picking up Baby C and doing a few things around the house, we left to drive to our OB-GYN appointment. On the way, we had to stop at the pharmacy to pick up 4 refills. One of them being my Z.ofran.

We got to the office around 4:30 pm. The receptionist was happy to hear that I had taken the time to print off the forms online and fill them out ahead of time. I was really happy the how the office looked and how nice everyone seemed. Around 5pm, my appointment time, I was taken back. I had to give a sample of urine and my blood pressure and weight we taken. I then proceeded to break down into tears as I waited. This is the first time I had cried during this pregnancy. Hormones? Nerves? Who knows? They were nice about. I hope I didn't freak them out too much.

The nurse then called us back to one of the offices for a conference with our new OB. It didn't take him long to come in. We spent a good while discussing our history and what to expect at upcoming appointments.I was happy to learn that my RE's office had already sent over a lot of my medical records. He said he may try the doppler, but that I shouldn't be too concerned if we didn't find the heartbeat just yet.

We then moved to another room. I had an examination. And, best of all, he then tried the doppler.... it worked! After a few seconds, he found the heartbeat. He said it was around 140bpm and that it was normal.

Since he hasn't given us an u/s yet, he is basing my next appointment (we oppted to do the NT scan) off of my LMP. So, even though I should be measuring around 10w1d today (from our other ultrasounds), he is counting me as around 11 weeks. My NT is next Monday and then, if need be, he will change the due date.

Then, the following Tuesday we have an appointment with one of the midwives from the office and to hear about our NT results.
