Today my friends was a OB appointment day.
It’s amazing how short it was. I arrived, I got weighed(awful, just awful), peed in a cup, then went to the exam room.
Chit chatted with my midwife M about the weight gain(bad), my labs(good, I do NOT have the sickle cell trait), and plans for future appointments.
I will be having my 1 hour glucose tolerace test early(at 17 weeks) because of a STRONG family history of diabeties. Yes, everyone is my family has it except my mom. Great.
And I will be having the BIG ultrasound around the 2nd week of July.
But the highlight of course, was hearing the heartbeat on the Doppler, which M found pretty quickly. 145 beats of bliss.
Made my day.
Oh, and she confirmed for me that the 2nd trimester starts at 13 weeks!
