Hi Ladies!

Back from my appointment! We heard the heartbeat!! It was REALLY hard to hear because mine was so strong, but we heard it for a split second a few times. Doctor said she was just happy that we were able to hear it. Before she put the dopplar on me, she made me promise that if we didn't hear it, that I wouldn't freak out (ya, sure.) but I definitely left out a sigh of relief when we heard it!

She told me that everything from my blood work was fine. however, I told her I have been having heart flutters again (I have mitral valve prolapse, but I can usually only feel it when I am more stressed) so I have to get a 24 hour heart monitor put on on Tuesday (sigh) She said that they are just making sure everything is ok, but that it is pretty normal.

I asked her if me showing so much was normal, or anything to be concerned about, and she said it was fine, and I only gained 3 pounds... not near as much as I thought, and they were fine with that!!

My next appointment is February 10th at 3:45, she said then we will schedule the anatomy u/s for 18-19 weeks! YIPPEE!!

On a side note... this doctor I saw (there are 5 in the practice and they want me to see all of them at least once since we never know who will be on call when I go into labor...) seriously looked like she was my age.. a little scary! haha.. BUT, she was super nice, I was very happy with her

Thanks everybody! I'll keep you updated on heart monitor. Not a big deal, last time I had one, it was for 30 days! 24 hours will seem like a breeze!

We are 2 days apart. I wonder if my doc will schedule an anatomy appt. How fun would that be for us to find out together?

Sounds great! My office also recommended that I see all the doctors and for the same reason. I have seen one doctor so far and the rest were just nurses. I see a male doctor on Jan 31st.

I KNOW! it will be so exciting when we all start finding out! I wish they would have just scheduled mine now, but they are waiting til next appointment... AGH! I just want to know so I can start counting down the days!

I told DH today that if they can't figure out what it is at that appointment, we are paying to get a 3D one done somewhere! haha
