Well, my first appointment went better than I expected today. I haven't really had any nausia yet, but this morning, eating my breakfast, I got sick half way through it. I'm not sure if I should chalk it up to nerves because of the appt. or if it is the start of morning sickness. It was harder than I thought going back to the same doctors office. This appoint was only to "confirm" the pregnancy (like the 10 sticks I've peed on aren't proof enough) so they scheduled me with the midwife. I have to say, I absolutely LOVED the midwife. She spent so much more time with me discussing details and making me feel comfortable. It became quite clear to me that my original OB was more of a "surgeon". I've decided to stick with the midwife for the whole pregnancy. She put my on pelvic rest (for precautionary reasons) until after the 1st u/s. I also found out I have a UTI, so she gave me antiboics for that as well. I got my script for prenatal vitamins and my appointment for my first ultrasound. It is scheduled for Monday, October 27th. It is late in the afternoon so dh will be able to come with me. That will be a big relief. I can call on Friday or Monday and get my numbers, but I'm thinking I might just be better off not knowing. I don't know -- maybe I'll change my mind by Friday. Anyway -- I think the appointment was a great success. Now, I just have to wait untill 10/27 to hopefully see my baby's hearbeat.

YAY for a great appointment
I'm glad that the midwife was so nice to you, it makes a world of difference doesn't it? Sorry about the UTI, but good that you got stuff to get rid of it.
I can't wait until the 27th to hear all about your first u/s!

Hey Sacha, I must have missed your BFP post - so, CONGRATS!!! YAY!!!

That is great you feel so good with your midwife, I almost wished I would have gone that route, but it's a little too late for that now....

Anyhow, 10/27 will be here before you know it, and I can't wait for the update and pics of your little bean!

for your appointment....and for finding a midwife that you like!

I am planning to schedule my first u/s today when/if I get my lab results but mine should be around the same time. We can wait anxiously together!
