My 10 week appointment was today, very low-key. Got my flu shot, chatted a bit with the midwife, then she tried the doppler. I told her it wouldn't work. Never works before 12 weeks. Well this one is higher... found it almost right away! Sweet!

I'm also already feeling the little booger move in there, at night when I lay down and am still. Jeez.

I think this is going to be a very low-key pregnancy. Not doing the NT scan, just doing the level II ultrasound at 18 weeks and finding out what it is, and then I don't really want any ultrasounds or NSTs in the third tri unless I have some big issue come up. Last time the NSTs just irritated and stressed me out, the opposite of what they were supposed to do!

It's weird being relaxed during pregnancy.

2 IVF babies and 1 surprise!

I hear ya on the being relaxed. I think having a "surprise" pregnancy really makes the difference from the start. Aside from my bleeding in the beginning, i have not had any panic episodes like i did with the other two, and my anxiety about pregnancy is at an all time low!!

Im glad you had a good appt. I had a really high uterus with charlie, he ended up jammed in my ribs at 27 weeks and stayed there, hopefully that isnt the case for you!!

I think skipping the NSTs is an awesome idea this time around, I know they bugged you with Kate. I'm glad for the extra ultrasounds I'm getting, but if I'd been offered, I would've declined NSTs... They are just too much of a pain in the butt, and IMO, I can accomplish enough monitoring like that with kick counts.

(Which reminds me, you totally need to message me or something with the good way to do those, I know I should be starting here fairly soon!)
