the day of my first prenatal appointment. I'm so excited, I hope I finally get to see munchkin. My appointment is with the health department while I'm waiting for my Meidcaid to come through. I will update as soon as I get back home. My appointment is at 8:15 this morning.

Wow!!! That was a long 4 hours spent at the health department! I hope I get my medicaid soon, the doctor's office is much faster(I hope) and I don't have to miss classes to go!!! The health department only has materity services on Mondays. First they had computer problems and couldn't update my chart. Then I had to do the 1 hr glucose test( I failed go back the 21st for the 3 hour, they let me do that on a Wednesday.) Plus have a yearly, but the higlight of the day was getting to hear baby's heartbeat!!! I knew before the doctor said there it is. I won't be able to have an ultrasound until between 16-20 weeks, but that's all good. SO just some thoughts and prayers that all goes well. Also my blood pressure was high, but I have white coat high blood pressure, so I'm sure it's down now.

I'm curious about the glucose test as well... Normally that isn't until 27-ish weeks? At least, not from what I hear.

Glad everything went well... I love the sound of baby's heartbeat. Wonderful, isn't it?

Yay for hearing the heartbeat! Man they crammed alot of stuff in one appt! It does seem a bit early for the glucose testing.

I got the glucose test at 13 weeks because of family history...

Glad to hear everything's great! If diabetes runs in the family, glucose test is recommended early in the pregnancy.

I was wondering about the glucose also....I can definitely see it being done early if you have family history though. At least you got everything taken care of

I had a glucose test early too...I have PCOS, so that's why I had mine early, and later too...do you have PCOS?

Yes have PCOS, and yes have family history. Plus I think its just protocol with the health department for maternity services. They do not have an u/s machine in the building, and temp medicaid only pays for 1 ultrasound, and they don't like to do that one until you can tell sex of baby as well. I will just be glad for my medicaid to come through so I can get into my doc's office, and not have to keep cramming my Monday's so full of stuff. As yes the 4 hours of hurry up and wait was worth it, just because I got to hear baby!!! It made my day, I'm still running on the natural high of that!!!!
