We were in and out of the appointment today. No exam, only listened for the heartbeat. I figured an exam was a gimme and undressed unnecessarily. This threw the doctor, but I have a feeling removing my pants will be so engrained that by the end of the year I'll have to remind myself to stay dressed even for the dentist. Baby's heart rate was 167. It didn't take too long to find it and my bladder was totally empty. He said everything sounded perfect. It was a relief because I'd been worried - for no real reason, but I stand by it.
We got the referral to do the quad screening. Figured if it's covered, might as well. We're both healthy with healthy histories, but figure you can't be too prepared.
We also scheduled the ultrasound to find out the sex on May 20. I wish I could fast forward to then!
I think it's finally, really starting to sink in that I'm going to (whatever you believe in willing) have a baby. I mean, I knew it logically, but I'm only really starting to allow myself to believe it. Not even imagining what or who the baby will be like, but that there's going to be this little being that's going to be around all the time because I made him or her. I guess the wonder of it all is showing.
