All is well in baby land!
Today’s appointment was long and pretty uneventful. We met with the nurse and she checked my weight, blood pressure, urine for proteins and sugars — everything is fine! Next, we met with a dr who went over our history, did a pap, and pelvic exam, and again all is well! I also had a ton of blood drawn to check for every STD known to man as part of the 1st trimester blood panel. Unfortunately, there was no ultrasound, but I am sure Baby W is just fine! I have been so spoiled with weekly scans that it was a pretty big disappointment to not have one today. On the bright side, my sis-in-law ordered a fetal doppler for us, and it should be here very soon! I am so beyond excited to give it a try, although we may not hear much for another week or so, it will be amazing to hear Baby W’s heartbeat whenever we want. We go back on July 23rd for our 1st trimester ultrasound, nuchal translucency screening, and check-up — I CAN’T WAIT!
Have a great 4th of July!
