I had my initial Ob appointment this morning! Despite having had 2 ultrasounds, now I feel securely pregnant. I think it took hearing the doctor tell me things like "at 20 weeks you will have this ultrasound," and giving me options for testing, etc.

Everything went well- a ton of labwork and also ended up having my yearly exam. I wasn't planning to do the yearly but they kind of made it not an option. :\ Oh well, at least it's done and over with!

I quizzed her about the likeliness of this pregnancy being successful (after my past losses), and she said while she can't make any promises because any pregnancy can change drastically in the first 12 weeks, as of right now she has no reason to believe anything will go wrong! So yay!!

Got a little goodie bag, too. They actually gave me a pregnancy journal!
I got a referral to maternal/fetal medicine because of my epilepsy, but she told me not to expect to be referred there long term. It's more of a precaution right now and only if that doctor thinks I need to be followed more closely will I see him on a regular basis.

Sounds like a great appt. I got a pregnancy journal with my last pregnancy. I'm hoping I get one again this time, and actually get to finish it.

I got some sort of welcome packet thing too, provided by First 5 I think, but all mine had in it was a board book for baby that was mostly in Spanish, and a bunch of pamphlets I don't need that were also mostly in Spanish. Oh, California. LOL
