8 weeks, 3 days pregnant
I had my second doctor’s appointment this afternoon, and everything went great. It’s almost hard to believe I’ve known I was pregnant for more than four weeks
now — in a lot of ways, it’s gone by fast!
Boring details first: my blood pressure was 120/70, and my bloodwork results were perfect. I found out I have A-positive blood, which I never knew — I plan to remember it by thinking of “A+” the grade.
Unfortunately, my doctor never did the heartbeat check — which we had really been looking forward to. He said eight weeks was still early to do it, and he thought I would “be upset” if he couldn’t find it.
Uh, yeah. I had to admit I would have melted down.
I won’t get an ultrasound until January — which seems like a million years away, but hopefully it goes fast.
But the best news is that my first appointment with my OBGYN is scheduled for three weeks from today — Wed., November 18.
I’m excited to get to meet her, and VERY excited to get to hear the baby’s heartbeat. I’ll be 11 weeks and 3 days pregnant by that point, so hopefully she’ll let us take a listen.
