11 weeks pregnant!
Hello, Week 12! Have I been waiting for you or what!
I’m really happy to be in Week 12, because it sounds so far along — compared to Week 10 or Week 11. At the end of this week, I will officially have been pregnant for “three months” (in this-only-applies-to-pregnancy sense that four weeks equals a month).
I’ve got my first OBGYN visit on Wednesday, and I’m really, really
looking forward to it. Once again, my regular doctor has promised I’ll get to hear the heartbeat at that appointment, but we all know how he promised that last time and didn’t deliver
I’m REALLY hoping my OBGYN will try to look for the heartbeat (and find it, of course). From what I’ve read, they say you “may” be able to hear it in your 12th week, but I can’t even imagine how freaked I’ll be if I can’t hear it.
Oh, and on the off-chance that my OBGYN thinks I am measuring too large for my 12th week — which means twins is a possibily, since there is no way in hell I got my dates wrong — she may schedule an ultrasound to check. No one believes me, but I still think there’s a chance!
