Went very well. It was with Dr Sweetness, not the nurse. (Thank goodness!) Apparently I am still pregnant. No pap today because I got one in March. I just need to get the records to her from the Apprentice's office. No ultrasound today, as expected. My uterus is apparently the right size for how many weeks I am, and my pelvis is good, too. She did attempt to find a heartbeat, but was unable to locate it. It was likely a little early. I am only 9.5 weeks along, so the little one may be too small. This appointment was a head to toe physical, along with some blood work, and the inevitable peeing in a cup. Afterward, we talked a little bit about what to expect and the genetic testing. She did mention the GTT. I do not know whether my endo will do that before she does, or what. (I think my endo will try to see me every couple of months while I am pregnant.) My next appointment with Dr Swwetness is in 2 weeks for the nuchal scan, and more bloodwork. I bet they have me pee in a cup again. Oh the excitement.
One thing amazed me about Dr Sweetness. She did a cervical exam while I was there. She placed the speculum so gently that I barely felt it go in. Honestly! It was a little strange. I have my breathing and positoning all going, and I did not even need it. Very weird. In a good kind of way.
Dr Sweetness did say that I am not really high risk for anything other than gestational diabetes. I sort of knew that going in. Thank goodness for metformin! Hopefully that will help. Between that and guidance from my endo, I hope I will be GD-free. That is what we are hoping, anyway. Dr Sweetness also asked if I had thought much about labor and delivery. Honestly, apart from having a vaginal birth, I really have not given it much thought. I guess I need to start thinking about it soon.
In other news, I have been looking at carseats. I think I am going with a higher weight infant car seat. I am sort of waiting to see what the reviews on the new Britax infant carseat look like before making any commitments. If I can get FIL to pay for crib and carseat and co-sleeper, that will go a long way to making baby and me happy. I am actually sort of afraid to send him a lot of links because I think he would buy me one of everything.
