Well. Here is my long awaited update on my first doctor's appointment:). First off, the widget you see with the baby on my blog looks just like my little "peanut" looks. Seriously. I got my first baby pic yesterday and that is exactally what he or she looks like. Cute huh. They called it our little peanut at the doctor's office. And let me tell you....internal ultrasound....not too much fun:) But I am sure there is much more fun to come.
So the appointment was fairly traumatic for me, probably because i am a big wimp and scardy cat. But I think it was more traumatic emotionally. I was really excited about the visit. I guess I pictured the doc sitting down and talking with us, giving us advice, asking us if we had questions. None of the above happened. todd and I waited in the exam room for two hours before the doctor came in, while hearing someone sobbing extremely loudly in the room next door. That always makes you feel good huh....so the doctor was clearly upset when she came in the room. There was not much idle chatter. She just sent me straight to the ultrasound room. Where they totally invaded me:)hhehe. But I was excitedto see little peanut, and I think I could vaguely see the heartbeat, although I am not sure exactally what I was looking at...
That was that. Then they told me to get dressed and get my blood drawn. So I guess I was disappointed. I am not sure if I should continue to go to this doctor or go to a new one. IF anyone has any suggestions, let me know and pray God gives Todd and I wisdom. Because I am stuck with whoever I pick for 9 months and I want to enjoy them.
Then more trauma....hehhe. They could not get my blood drawn...They stuck me three times and were poking all around and I would not bleed. Let's just say that was not pleasant. Finally they stuck me in the bottom part of my arm..Poor Todd was more traumatized than me.
I went home after the appt and did what any girl would do. I put my pajamas on and took a nap...todd is the best hubbie. ever..
Well I gotta go, but I will post more later
