I didn't see a new chat thread, so I figured I would go ahead and start one.
I had my first prenatal appointment today. It's with a midwifery practice I haven't been to before; they're pretty new actually, this branch opened about a year ago, though the owner opened her first practice 10 years ago. The appointment was straightforward; I'm about 8 weeks, so it was all talk. I expected to get blood drawn, but she'll do that next time.
The office is about 7 mins from my house, on the same road actually. That's really nice -- it used to be at least a half hour drive, and then parking was annoying. I had to draw a map from the clinic to my house; I'm not good with directions in the first place, and between pregnancy brain and being nervous at a new place, it was even worse. I manged to mess up the written directions because the road becomes one way on my section, but I was thinking it was one way the other way, and was giving them directions to drive around to get there. Bah. I realized as I walked in that my mom shops at the pharmacy across the road, and that there was a teeny chance that she might see me.
