I just got back from my OB appointment - and it was great. I was pretty nervous at first, I have to admit. I was fine all of the way until I was sitting in the room. Then I started feeling nervous. Usually Aaron has been with me - this is the first doc appointment in maybe a YEAR that he hasn't been there with me! The doc came in, and was very sweet - and talked to me quickly - and said we were going to try and get a heartbeat with the doppler. But - not to fear - if we couldn't hear with the doppler she would take me right over to u/s.
So I held my breath. And she quickly had me listen to my heartbeat. And then shifted a bit, and we heard the baby. I cried a little - and then laughed, which had the doppler make a horrible noise - and then the doc laughed.
I've actually LOST a pound - which is shocking to me. We talked quickly about my weight concerns, and she made me feel much better. She even admitted to gaining 60 pounds with her first pregnancy. Oh - and I'm off the progesterone as of today! Hurrah!!!!!!
I scheduled my next appointment for next month, and then my big u/s at 18 weeks. That is on July 7th. I can't believe it is so soon! Of course, we aren't finding out the sex - but it'll be really neat to see the baby looking like a real baby. Only 6 weeks. Seems like time is flying now.
