1st Doctors Appointment

Wow!!! I had my first Doctors Appointment today. I wasn't sure what exactly would happen seeings how it was a brand new doctor. I met with nurse first and she took all my medical history. Then she poked my finger to get a drop of blood to check my iron. Next I had to pee in a cup. I'm getting really good a peeing - alot!! I had to wait about 5 minutes or so and she came and got me and said that it was positive and the dr was going to do a pap and pelvic. I was past due. I should have had one last September, and I had completely forgotten about it since I had had my surgery then. So I have my exam done and go talk to the dr in his office. He said everything looks really good. I asked him about my lactose intolerance, and he said to take Caltrate + D to supplement the calcium and Vitamin D I am missing out on by not being able to drink milk. He also said if the morning sickness gets too bad to let him know and he would prescribe something for the nausea. I was really surprised when he said he wanted to do an ultrasound next week. Like, Monday to be exact. He said it is still early, but we should be able to see the heartbeat. I am really excited about this. He also said that the little bit of cramping I have been having is normal, but if I have any more spotting at all to call them right away. They drew some blood before I left to check my hormone levels and told me to call tomorrow after 11:00 am to find out how they were. I guess I will know more after Monday. I am very relieved.

Justin had went with me to my appt., but he decided to just sit out in the waiting room. silly guy. He missed all the "fun". Afterwards, we came home and I decided it was nap time. I think I slept for at least 2 hours. It was really nice!! I could really grow to like naps.
