Hey everybody! My first appointment was yesterday and I was able to see the baby!

I don't have a scanner but you guys all know what a baby at 8 weeks looks like :-). I call it a "blob of somethingness". I saw and heard the heartbeat. It was beating at 182 per minute!!!! I'm thinking GIRL!!!!! This just makes it so much more real.

Of course they took a gallon of blood. I HATE getting blood drawn. They can never find my veins. Every tech feels like they are the best and they can do it the first time. I told the girl you have to take it in my hand not my arm. But what does she do...start in my arm...and where did she ultimately have to take it....in my hand...smh.

All in all my appointment was great. I had to wait awhile because my doctor had to go into delivery. She was very nice though.

DF teared up when he saw the baby. This is his first so he's extremely excited. When we got home he treated me like I was going to break. It was sooo cute!

Congrats on the great appt and the heartbeat!
Thats how the nurses are with my blood too. I end up fighting with them.
I dont want to be stuck over and over in the arm and I am telling you it has to be in the hand.
