Wednesday was my first baby appt and it went great! Troy and my mom came and they were great supporters. I was a little nervous because I knew I was getting my blood drawn and I am really scared of needles. When we first got there the nurse weighed me and asked some routine questions...then our doctor came in and asked some more questions. This was the first time I've met my doctor and I'm relieved because she is really nice and I feel very comfortable around her. After the questions I changed and she did a pelvic exam and listened to my lungs and did all that routine stuff. Then asked me if I had an H1N1 shot...I told her no and she recommended I get one. At first I was hesitant becuase I hate needles...but Troy and my mom convinced me to get it. I changed back into my normal clothes and the nurse came in and gave me the shot. I made my mom hold my hand, LOL, and to my surprise I didn't even feel the needle go in! I was shocked. Then I had to go get my blood drawn...still nervous, I had my mom hold my hand again and I did feel the needle but it wasn't as bad as I thought. As long as I didn't look at any of the needles I was ok. Unfortunately they didn't schedule my ultrasound so I had to go in the next day for that.So yesterday was my ultrasound and the baby is measuring right at 9 weeks and the heartbeat is at 180...the nurse said that was really good. The baby is healthy and good! That is always a relief. So all in all my first baby appt was a good one!!! Troy and I loved the experience of seeing our baby and hearing it's heartbeat for the first time together. We can't wait for these 9 months to go by so we can meet our baby!

I got a call today from the medical referal company and they set me up with my new OBGYN at the Riverton Hospital. Her name is Dr. Twelves...cool name huh?? My supervior's friend had her and she said that she is a really good doctor...so I'm defintely releived. I'm excited for my first appointment and to meet my new doctor. My first baby appointment will be Monday January 25th...Troy and I are so excited! By that time I will be one day shy of 9 weeks pregnant and we should be able to hear the baby's heartbeat. We are very excited about that and hope everything runs smoothly with the first appointment!
