Our first appointment was a follow-up appointment to my ER visit. All that consisted of was a very brief history and discussion of my high risk pregnancies, an ultrasound, pap, medication, and a referral to a Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist.

 

Our first real prenatal appointment consisted of a more thorough history and discussion of my high risks, and another ultrasound.

I had a prenatal appointment today! My first official one, at 13w3d. Still no healthcare, but an amazing doctor around here has taken me on as a charity case, and one of his interns (it's one of those teaching facility practices) has been assigned to my free prenatal care. So sweet. Funny thing is, the intern is actually pregnant too, due one day after me! What are the odds of that happening?
Anyway, the appointment went great. No protein or glucose in urine, blood pressure 110 over 75, no weight gain as of yet, and best of all: a strong, regular heartbeat at 152 beats per minute! I am sooo relieved. That sound is the most beautiful thing in the world, right up until the point where you hear their first cry after they are born. orngbiggrin.gif

Iris, yay joy.gif!!!! Glad it went well!!

I had my 1st appt. today at 10 weeks 2 days. It went very well, we heard two nice, strong heartbeats joy.gifjoy.gif!! Everything checked out fine! I was hoping for an U/S, but I saw a PA, and she can't do U/S's. I'm hoping at the next appt. I'll be able to see them again! I am so relieved, as this was the time I had my M/C last year. I'm so glad I'm past that point now.

Mollie, I'm so happy you're past your milestone now! You've been on my mind, I know how nervous you were for this appointment. Yay for both of us! hug.gif

Friday was a really special day!
We had our first midwife appointment. We were exactly 12 weeks (hello second trimester) we got to hear a lovely heartbeat. My uterus is a good size. We discussed all kinds of stuff. She doesn't weigh me...I love that! Hooray!

Then we went to a local retreat center for a retreat. We got there early and went for a walk..sat on log and.....he proposed! Yay! I'm getting married this august.
It'll be casual...but now I gotta figure out a giant white sundress, lol.
