Today was our first OB appointment! I was a little frustrated with how long it took, but in the end it went okay. I know this is why I always try to make appointments for first thing in the morning, but you take what you can get when you just want to see your baby! We got to the office at 9:45am when our appointment was scheduled, didn't get called back until 10:10am and then waited another 20 minutes for the nurse practitioner. Luckily, I didn't have to have an annual or blood drawn since my RE's office has done all of that in the past 6 months. She was about to let us leave when I asked about hearing the heartbeat since that is what I was told when I made the appointment. She explained that she didn't like doing it earlier than 12 weeks because a lot of times you can't hear it yet. But, she was willing to try...and that she did! I think I had almost a whole tube of gel on me! :-) Unfortunately, she wasn't able to pick it up, but that meant we got to have a quick ultrasound to confirm that things are okay! She had her 2nd son through IVF so I think she really understood that we just wanted to know everything was on track. I am so amazed at how much this little baby grows every two weeks! I couldn't see the ultrasound screen, but I could see Jason's eyes when she started so I knew everything was good to go. He/she is measuring right on track and the hearbeat today was 170!! The highest it has been!
