Wow, it was long! lol First my doctor took me into her office, which I love about her...None of my old OB's ever did that...She went over my chart, we talked about things etc...I did find out that I have 2 of the MTHFR Gene mutations...Because of that now that i'm pregnant and it's going good, she's going to call some perinatologist's in Seattle to see if I should be started on levonox and also an oral progesterone (I can't remember the name) from 16-32 weeks in my pregnancy...She might even send me down to have an appointment with a perinatologist (we don't have any near us)...She did the whole exam, except the pap since it made me bleed last time...She was very understanding and said we didn't need to do it...The best part was that I got an ultrasound again!!! Baby looks like a baby with a big huge head and a healthy heartbeat...She said my uterus was kind of tipped so she couldn't get a great picture, but the heartrate was 162 bpm and looked super healthy....I got a big goodie bag full of stuff, a book, planner, magazines etc...I'm going back in on March 30th for an appointment and NT scan.

Yay Megan! I know what a HUGE relief that must be for you! I am so tickled to hear that everything is going fantastic and that you have a doctor who gives a crap. That can make all the difference in the world.

I'm glad they're considering giving you progesterone from 16 weeks. I'd always heard that it can be a very effective way of keeping you from going into early labor, something I'll be looking into myself. I look forward to hearing about the rest of your journey babe!

*Thank you so much to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!*
