Hey all, how's everyone doing this week?
I had my first official appointment with my new doc and I love her so much. We heard the baby's heart beat for the first time ever (my tipped uterus didn't let me hear it before) and I measured at 15cm for fundal height (I don't really know what that measurement means, if anything... she said it doesn't matter until week 20 anyway). We talked a little about birth plans and I got her ok to do without the saline lock at the beginning, which I was getting tons of pressure from various people to do, so I'm really psyched she didn't think it was a big deal. She also said I could sleep on my back with impunity until I couldn't anymore (she said you feel it when you can't do it, so it's not like a magical date or something), which was really reassuring.
Other than that, I'm having raging headaches and a horrible skin infection on my calf from my razor (WTF?) but am generally energetic and eating ok in the early part of the day. Sleeping is hit and miss, but I'm super lucky I can sleep in if I need to.
What about everyone else? Fun doc appointments? Weird symptoms? Exciting changes from last week?
