Today was the day of my first OB appointment. I finally graduated from the RE. It has only been 2 weeks since my last ultrasound but I was really hoping I would have another one… no such luck!
The appointment itself was very uneventful. Pap smear, breast exam, 4 vials of prenatal blood work, flu shot (which I was very reluctant about but Dr. L said that it is very safe and recommended), blood pressure, weight and the slew of questions they ask.
I did talk about my concerns that I feel virtually normal (I know I should be ecstatic but it really worries me). Dr. L tried to reassure me by saying that only 50% of women experience pregnancy symptoms and since we saw a heartbeat at our ultrasound the risk of miscarriage is down to 2%. Ok well I would feel better if I actually got to hear/see our little blob but only 3 weeks till our 12 week scan. I have the day off of work for the ultrasound so it will be perfect.
Here’s hoping that these 3 weeks go by super fast!!
