The new Doc
Well I had my first doctors appointment on Tues. I'm sorry I didn't write sooner but Earl has been off all week, so things have been busy.
Okay he's old, like really old, with a slit British or maybe Australian accent. He also has a student Doctor with him right now and he was nice. The only bad thing is its two men looking up my tulip instead of just one, oh and at the same time too. Yup, that's one to many if you ask me.
I heard babies heart beat for the first time which does prove once and for all that there is in fact a baby in there. It's seems do be doing very well since it's heart is beating and I've already has some bubble type feelings (movement) or maybe it was gas, oh well I'm going to call it movement. Dr Haskins said my odds for a miscarriage are down to like 2 percent now that there is an established heart beat, so that was a load off my mind.
He was also very good at telling me what to expect. He said expect a more jiggly tummy then before. (I kind of knew that one) Expect more discharge (sorry gross I know) Expect more hip and back pain (Yup I've felt that one) Also expect more tummy pain, even when you roll over in bed you will experience more stabbing like pains. (That was a good one to hear, because I was wondering about it.)
There is also a new question this time around. Does your family have a history of Heart Disease, Diabetes blah, blah, blah. Have you had chicken pox? Are you taking your vitamins? Is there any chance you are related to your babies father? WHAT! I had to repeat the question to make sure I heard him right. I guess there's more incest going on these days...weird...gross...weird.
Well that's it for me today. I have my first ultra sound on Tues, then another on July 20th...ish. I'll keep you posted.
Have a good one ladies.
