First Prenatal Appointment - Originally typed Feb.21st, 2007
Yesterday when Roanen had his doctor's appointment I had a prenatal appointment too. It went well, aside from the fact that I hate the routine of having to pee in a cup every single time I go in, and it's even more difficult with the boys. Fortunately there was no one in the office and I was able to distract them with the toys and quickly run to the bathroom so they wouldn't be in there touching stuff while I took aim. The doctor agrees with me that I'm more pregnant than the ultrasound suggested based on how high my uterus has grown, but says we really won't know for sure until my 18 week ultrasound. I may be getting a 13 week ultrasound to do the maternal serum screening, but he really didn't think it was necessary for a "young woman who has babies regularly" (oh my god, is that what I am? He laughed when he said it...) since I'm so low risk and it tends to cause anxiety. We'll see. He seemed to have forgotten by the end of the appointment, and I may miss the window to do it, so if it happens, it happens. Other than that all seems well and I'll be getting the usual bloodwork, regular doctor's appointments, etc. Back into the pregnancy routine. Groan.
