little one's first visit to the ob went well yesterday. my, how much we've grown! we all liked dr f quite a bit, however, I was a little disappointed in the "low tech" feel of the office. I am keeping my appointment at big high risk clinic scheduled a week from monday. I have a feeling we'll stick with dr f. there is something so nice, and yet so unfamiliar, about personal attention. I could get used to that.
little one (or upsidedown gummy bear) is measuring right on target. 8w! I accused dr f of eavesdropping in on our conversation about how far along I was. he assured me he was not listening outside the exam room door. the measurements were accurate and true. we also got to hear the heartbeat for the first time. how cool is THAT! I recall a heartbeat of 171 bpm. b recalls 178 bpm. in order to keep straight, I think we need a third party (maybe a stenographer) to accompany us to all future appointments.
unfortunately, also visible on the u/s was some more blood. dr f warned me that I may have yet another bleeding episode in my future. this scares the crap out of me. it is still unclear as to why I was bleeding in the first place. yikes. another mystery in the world of obstetrics I guess. he also upped my PIO to 1 cc again. I was looking forward to fewer injections but I like the idea of the extra hormonal support. but man, my ass hurts!
today will be a VERY quiet day. if I have the energy later on I may head out to la perla for some new underwear. I am clearly busting out of my 34 a/b bras. (I'm joking - about la perla - not the busting out. we're talking more target style or better yet, kohl's.) I woke up with a terrible sore throat and I cannot stop sneezing. "thanks b!" he hasn't been well these last few days and now I'm afraid it's a family affair. it's cold out and I feel crappy. but at least I have this beautiful picture to make me smile.
