First Appointment 7.5 Weeks

First appointment went well. One nurse was almost giddy seeing me there. She asked how old the kids were now and if we were excited. I had a huge smile on my face to say yes to that! It could be the 10th kid and I'm still going to be thrilled. I forgot about the blood draw so they did it lying down since I've passed out there before once when I forgot to eat before coming. I had thrown up for the first time with this pregnancy yesterday morning so I didn't want to eat and then take the chance of throwing up there. They also got me to agree to a flu shot. I have had 2 now, I think it's pointless and don't normally subject myself and never have subjected the kids to it but about 1/3 of the kiddos school has been absent the past few weeks with the real flu (not the stomach flu) so I went ahead. Dr was happy to see me once again and we chatted quite abit. She looked over my new patient form they have us fill out yearly noticing I didn't fill out the births section and said, "did you get tired or writing??" I told her there wasn't enough room on their form for them all. There were only 3 slots.

My next appointment is March 31st where we get to hear our little one's heartbeat unless I find it before then with my own Doppler. :)

YAY! Glad it went well! I must say I'm a tad jealous....knowing we are done has made me a little sad. Plus, with the IUD I know there is very little chance of an "oops" so it's all very final.

I hope the next appointment goes well for you!
