Oh dear, there is so much for me to relearn... but I don' t know what HCG levels are... I wonder if we tracked this the first pregnancies I had? I can't remember! Too much time has passed. All I remember is having to go the bathroom and fill a cup. But I don't remember much else.. brain fog.
My first appointment will be at 11 week mark. I will be with the same midwife I had for my previous pregnancies and she is 2 hours away
... so she lets me stretch out my appointments so that I don't have to go in so much. I was pretty anxious for the first 24 hours after I found out, but once I got her on the phone and she said she was willing to drive out to my house again, I felt much better! Most of my anxiety during pregnancy is all about the birth... I seriously spend the entire 8 months meditating and getting ready to give up control to my body... I worry about the big picture, but the small milestones come and go for me.
One thing I am excited for, both of my kids are big enough to remember this appointment! They will get to hear the babies heart beat and it will be pretty cool. Especially since we asked them to not share the news about bean without permission... though my DH has probably told everybody by now.
Edit: OH HCG ...
