so i had my first appointment today! i was a total mess all night last night and this morning lol. when we got to the office, they almost didn't see me b/c of my stupid PCM who sent my referral over wrong, but we got that all taken care of. I had blood drawn and then waited for 45 min in a paper gown in a cold room, but dr finally comes in and asks how things are going and past pregnancies. then he's like well lets see and does the u/s right there... and we have a HEARTBEAT! saw it first then we got to hear it and he prints me a pic and then another one he hands to my hubby and says congrats daddy! Then we went to his office to chat, he wanted to know if i had had any testing to find out why we are loosing at 14 and 15 weeks- Nope, b/c we moved and the gyn that i saw first here said that we have to have 3 losses in a row. So he sent me back to the lab room for more blood draws, i think they took 10 tubes! so he put me on aspirin until the tests come back to see if its some kind of clotting disorder. he said to progesterone b/c i have carried a normal pregnancy just fine and if i would have a problem with that it would have been evident with that pregnancy, and he said the side effects of the extra hormones wouldn't hurt baby but would make me uncomefortable and moody. we left so happy that we finally have someone on our side! i dh felt much better and so do i, next appointment is in 4 weeks, so we'll see how things are going then... oh and baby measured exactly a week behind where i thought we should be so we are only 7 weeks... only 8 more weeks till we will feel safetly past the scary parts and we will finally be able to spill the beans!
