I've been a bit absent recently . . . alot going on in life to keep me away . . . but just wanted to update that I had my first appointment with the MW. I had it at 10wks, 5days, and heard the heartbeat! It took them awhile to find it - like 10 minutes - so I was getting nervous, but then they found it. The birth center doesn't do early u/s, which was a little dissapointing, because I wanted to see the little one, but really better since they're not that great for the baby anyway.
I really like the midwife and the intern she has working with her, and all of our questions were answered the way we wanted them too. And I've only gained 2 lbs! So I think everything is good for now. DH is out getting ice cream, so I'm sure I'll be adding more lbs soon!
