Dr. Appt Update

To say I was nervous all morning was kind of an understatement. I actually felt sick to my stomach with nerves leading up to this appointment. It had been almost 3 weeks since we had seen peanut and I tend to be a worrier sometimes (shocking right?). I did giggle though because Matt hates going to the Dr.'s office with me because he feels so out of place. I think his face was red for most of the appointment. However, all worries were put aside when I saw peanut in the screen. You could see legs and arms and we measured at 12w3d. According the u/s that put the due date at 1-7-13. I keep joking about a new years baby because I hear they get a lot of free stuff lol not that it really matters in the end. The nurse didn't say much except peanut wasn't very active and she was like oh maybe they are a night time baby and I was like oh dear there goes my sleep! Then it was off to have some more blood drawn for the first trimester screening.

The nurse took my blood pressure (which was still good and for being harvest is very good!), weight which was the same and then she tells me that the Dr. was going to do a full exam. Matt's eyes went as wide as saucers. I didn't even know that this was happening but in my eyes, get it over with for the year. After everything, the Dr. informed us that everything with peanut looked great. We are right on track with everything. Talk about a huge sigh of relief! I go back in 4 weeks but they said that I won't have an u/s at that one =( but the next one I will.

Now that harvest is winding down, I probably will have to work Saturday and that will be it for extended hours I can get back to working on the spare room so once that is finished we can move onto the nursery.

  4. Yay! Glad you got to see Peanut again:) If you want to see Peanut moving around a little more next time just drink some orange juice before your appointment. The sugar in the juice usually gives them some energy to dance:) Good news on the blood pressure. I am wondering what will happen to mine once school starts again in August! So, no ultrasound at 16 weeks...does that mean your next ultrasound is the anatomy scan at 20 weeks? Are you and Matt going to find out if Peanut is a boy or a girl?

    1. I will definitely keep that in mind about the OJ. I am nervous about my blood pressure once we get into corn and bean harvest because that is longer and tempers tend to flare a tad more. We are planning on finding out what we are having but are intending on keeping the name a secret just so there is somewhat of a surprise.

    1. Wouldn't it just be so nice to just be going into this without any worries? But then I think how much more it means because of the things we went through to get to where we are.
