dr's appt.

Today I had a doctor's appointment to make up for one I missed while I was at disneyland.  It seriously took the doctor like 40 seconds (and what felt like five minutes) to find the heartbeat.  Oh man that freaked me out.  The baby was just super duper down low and not where he thought it would be.  That has never happened to me.  It was really scary.  It ended up being no big deal, but in my head at the time I was making all sorts of plans for what I needed to do.  Ahhhh.  Being pregnant is scary.  It gets scarier and scarier the older I get.  I will be 18 weeks on Monday.  I weighed in at 132...I know that is a weird thing to put on your blog but when I used to keep a paper journal I wrote what I weighed at every appointment.  I love to go back and read that.  I also love to see how much I gain and so forth.  

The best part of today's appointment...aside from finally hearing the heartbeat was that I got to schedule my ultrasound.  It is next friday!  I can't wait to find out what this little baby is going to be.  Along with that I have to have a consult with the high risk pregnancy doctor...because of the medications that I am on and because of my RA.  That is scary but strictly precautionary.  

Sorry boring post but this is the kind of thing I like to read back on.

I also post (on my personal blog) what I weighed at each doctor's appointment. I agree, it's fun to go back and read the details. Can't wait to find out what this little baby is.
