Doctor's Trip 10/10/12
Sam got to go with me to the doctor's this week! We were excited to get to hear the baby's heartbeat... Which we didn't end up getting to do, lol. The baby was low in my uterus and turned around the wrong way. The doctor did a quick sonogram to be sure everything was good, and she said the baby was squirming around too much to get a specific rate. Everything looked good, though, and she was happy. Sam said he thought that it would look more like a baby already, but since the baby was backwards it still pretty much looked like a blob.
The first thing I asked her was, "Why am I showing? Isn't it too early?"
She laughed at me... And said you're pregnant! She explained that I am small person and that my uterus is tilted forward. Between these two things I am showing early. I probably won't grow too much for a while, but that's ok by me. She did confirm that there is only ONE baby, so Sam has amended his prediction and just thinks there is just one girl.
I am trying out a new prenatal at my doctor's request. She wants me to begin building up my iron stores. I had previously been taking the gummie kind.
My next appointment is in four weeks. It will be another quick appointment, and in between 18-22 weeks we will get to do our anatomy and gender scan! (It should be around Christmas time... what a wonderful Christmas present.)
