Had my second appointment today, it was very brief but I guess this is how it will be until the third trimester. Had a blood pressure check, which is still good. They also started checking my urine for protein. Also had a weight check, I've only gained 2 pounds so far, so I'm happy with that.
The doctor told me she was going to try to find the heartbeat with the Doppler but warned me she might not be able to this early. She found it right away! It was so exciting, especially because my husband was there and I loved to see how happy he was to hear it! I feel relieved to see that things are still going so well.
I elected to do the first trimester screen, which will be in about a week in a half. It's optional, but I'm doing it mostly because I can't wait until 20 weeks for another ultrasound! So hopefully that goes well, too!
Over all, I'm very happy and hope things continue to go smoothly.
