We were there for about 3 hours. You all know how I was so stressed about not getting good prenatal care and having to wait this long but wow is it worth it!! The clinic is inside the hospital and is very clean and bright - not at all like the clinic I went to 20 years ago when I had my son.

One of the nurses called in sick today so an RN who used to head the maternity wing came and took my blood pressure, did the urine check ect... She has been working at the hospital for 30 years. She got talking with my husband and I and we fell in love with her. She offered to be our "nurse buddy" even though that is not even her job anymore! We got her office as well as personal cell phone and I can call her anytime I need anything. I <3 her!! When I go into labor she will be there at the hospital to ensure I have a friendly face there.

The nurse practitioner came in and we did the whole medical history thing. She was so patient with me and Red - answered all our questions and was so sweet and funny! I <3 her too even though she is the one that gave me the Elderly label, lol. Did a pap (yuck) and discussed the amino with us. I told her about the heart palpitations and she ordered an ekg just to be on the safe side. We listened to the heartbeat and I think my monitor at home is better than theirs!

Then we were sent to a counselor who gave us all the fun pregnancy literature and information on how to sign up for childbirth classes and tours of the hospital. I also got a magnet for the fridge and I know I am babbling way too much about this.

Then I went and got bloodwork taken and the ekg done. Then we went out and got a burger and fries from 5 guys.

It was such a great appointment. Everyone seemed to genuinely care and I walked away feeling the wait is so worth it.

So we will know the sex in just 3 short weeks! Most everyone is saying Blue because my belly is so huge... we shall see!

Glad you had a great appt. and liked the clinic. As for the belly, I was ALL belly with Moose (a girl). You couldn't even tell I was pregnant from behind, it was ALL in the front. Now, I'm having a boy, and I've gotten bigger everywhere else. (Cute pic though!) Can't believe you'll know the sex in only 3 weeks! So exciting!!

So glad you had an awesome appointment and have a great nurse buddy! I had one with my second son, she had been the childbirth educator with our first (we only had 2 classes out of 8 and I went into preterm labor). She came and met my first when he was born, but when she heard I was at the hospital to have my 2nd she came to my room and said, "I'm staying all night 'til this guy is here." She stayed with me for most of my labor and helped me get to almost 10 cm before I caved at got the epi...couldn't have made it to 9.5 without her!

I hope you love having a nurse buddy!!!! Your belly shot is too totally CUTE! I say girl because you seem to be carrying low...but I'm no good at guesses. Either way, I say adorable and sweet!

Thank you girls!! So that was 7 girl and 1 boy vote. Honestly in a way I am hoping for a girl to put cute little dresses on and go to the nail salon with plus DH wants a girl. But a boy will make me so happy as well as I am so close to my sons.

Thanks Courtney! I missed confetti girl
