We had our first baby appointment on November 3rd, 2009. I was a bundle of nervous because I just wanted everything to go well. Our appointment was about 2 hours long as we had to answer a complete medical history for both myself and Chad. After all questions were answered it was finally the time to hear the babies heartbeat. I had no idea what to expect I just enjoyed the moment hearing our baby's heartbeat for the 1st time. It was amazing how fast it was, I was in shock and felt like I shouldn't breathe during the entire time we listened to it. Our baby's heartbeat was 168. After hearing the heartbeat I relaxed a bit more for the remainder of the appointment. I got to meet my new doctor (Dr. M) and I think she is going to be great and I look forward to getting to know her over the course of the next 6 months. Our next appointment is December 4th, 2009. The only thing I forget to do was take a picture of Chad and I at our first appointment. Oh well I will have to try at our next appointment. I look forward to that day!
I received a few questions since annoucing our pregnancy and so I thought that I would answer a few of them.
Are we going to find out the sex? Yes we will we are both planners and must know so we can get everything prepared for the day he or she arrives.
Are you going to stay at home after the baby is here? Actually since I work at home most of the time I plan on staying home and working too. Eventually we will have our son or daugther attend daycare.
How have I been feeling? I was sick almost all day for about 5 weeks and than during week 11 and 12 I started having great days with a few bad days during the week. This week (week 13) I have felt okay, I just have had a sore throat all week, but I am hoping that during week 14, which is next week, I will feel great. But if not I will take it, I have waited two years for these moments. I am living in the moment each day and loving it!
A few Pregnancy Notes
1. I love Rice Krispes - I have them every morning for breakfast and if nothing sounds good for dinner that is what I have!
2. I don't like chocolate at the moment - I really wonder if that will change... I loved chocolate prior to getting pregnant I would choose chocolate over a meal any day.
3. I like bland food options such as toast, cereal, crackers, pretzels, and grilled cheese.
4. The only drink that sounds good right now is water, I don't even drink my daily glass of chocolate milk.
It will be very interesting to see what changes over the next several months.
Everything is starting to feel real with this pregnancy as the secret is out and everyone now knows! I am excited for the months ahead and I had a great week sharing the news with all of you. Thanks for stopping by all week and leaving me sweet comments or sending me emails. Have a great weekend!
