9 weeks and counting...

I had my first prenatal appointment last Thursday. Things went well. Met my new doctor. Yes, this is new doctor #96 – I think. I’ve lost track as to how many different doctors I’ve gone to. This one seems very good and I’ve had a bunch of people recommend him to me.

He didn’t check for a heartbeat though. I’ll admit I was disappointed. He said it was too early on to hear it and he didn’t want to make me worry because he couldn’t find it. I guess that makes sense. BUT...the squeaky wheel gets the grease. I told him how incredibly nervous I am because of the whole miscarriage last time. And he scheduled me for an early ultrasound. Yipee! I’ll be 11 weeks and he said that obviously it’s no guarantee that I won’t still miscarry, but I’m crossing my fingers and praying like crazy that this ultrasound will show a baby and not me...empty.

I am excited that you will get a sneak peek, seems only right. So, in two weeks? I can't wait to see what they find. (Way to go on your doctor being positive!) But glad you like him better than all the rest, that is good!

That's so great that he listened to you!!! Yay for an early ultrasound! I'm sure it will all be great. Which Dr are you seeing???

Dr. Dave Stewart (Cal Stewart's son). Seriously a million people have told me to see him. And each person that has said his name to me isn't at all linked to the person before that told me to see him. And the best part is I get to see him through the entire pregnancy, have him deliver, and then stay with him afterwards.
