Had my first OB appt this morning at 8:30. Got all the paperwork filled out. Then about 10 minutes after they took me and DH back the doctor got a page from hospital for an emergency c-section. Other doctor was off today. After they placed us in exam room the nurse came back in and said it would be about a hour before doctor got back so we went and ran some errands and then came back 45 minutes later. They took us straight back to our exam room. We waited another 30 minutes before doctor came in.
I had to have a pap smear done! My weight this morning at home with clothes off was 121lb. and when they weighed me with clothes on at office it was 122lb. Unfortunately my blood pressure was high, 140/90, but I told the lady it was probably my nerves just because this being my first appt. I usually don't have high blood pressure. They were gonna check it again after my u/s and such to see if went down first since I would be a little more calm after making sure my little bean was ok.
They did a vaginal u/s after pap smear and I'm measuring right on time, 8 weeks and 4 days. Heart beat was around 160. Due date is 6/30/12. Doctor said everything looked great. I go back on December 29th for another u/s. We are taking girls with us to that appt.
After appt when she checked blood pressure again it was still 140/90 so she told me to check it a couple times this afternoon and call them to let them know what it is.
Here is our little bean!!!
DH said baby looks like a monkey in this one. LOL!

BP is down! YAY!! I've checked it twice since we got home and it was normal. Just got off the phone with doctors office and they told me just to continue to check it for a few more days to make sure it stays down.
Thanks all. BP has went down and stayed down so far. After today this pregnancy actually feels more real, but after tomorrow it will definitely sink in! I'm actually nervous, but excited at the same time.
