We went to our first appt yesterday. Abel took half the day off of work and Poopy went with us.
It was our first visit to the new OB. I was nervous (like an idiot). He did the exam, and then we went into his office.
He said everything “felt” like it was supposed to. Asked about my symptoms and told me they don’t do early ultrasounds unless there is something wrong.
Our first ultrasound won’t be until I’m 19-20 weeks along. He said if I really wanted one, he would do it. But, we don’t have insurance, so we’d have to pay extra for it.
For some reason, after seeing him, I’m now very calm about my pregnancy. I don’t feel the fear I did before. Sounds stupid, since all he did was feel me up and stick his hand up there. But now I feel like everything is okay.
I felt very comfortable around him and he was easy to talk to and address my concerns with. We discussed a VBAC vs. repeat C-Section. He told me it was entirely my choice. I told him I wanted to do a repeat section and he agreed that’s what he would do as well. So, we’ll be having this baby the week of May 14th. Seems weird to plan my baby’s birth!
We go back on October 23rd. Hopefully we’ll get to hear the heartbeat!
I’m feeling okay. Tired. That’s my biggest symptom. My boobs are pretty sore. I don’t remember them being this sensitive with Poopy. I’m getting morning sickness in early evening. Nothing too bad (yet).
