The Doctors went GREAT!!!

I have been meaning to post about my doctors appointment that I had on Tuesday. But I have been even more nauseous than usual, if that is even possible. They call it "morning" sickness, but morning is usually the only time of day I feel OK, then the rest of the day and night is awful. Please please please make the second trimester better!!!!!

OK dok, so, the doctors went great. He did an ultrasound and I got to see the little turd. Here, you can see too.

I don't think you can tell from this pic, but the doctor typed HI MOM DAD, on the screen before he "printed our pictures for our baby book" Mitch really got a kick outta that.

I was so nervous, and to finally be able to see our little baby, and to see the little heartbeat was the most amazing thing. I couldn't stop smiling all day. My doctor said that my nausea is a very good sign of a strong pregnancy. And that everything looks great. So I am still a little scared, but not nearly as much as I was.

Oh, then they gave me a huge goody bag. And by bag I mean a breastfeeding diaper bag, overflowing with stuff. Like diapers, breast pads, cans of formula, a little travel bag, a book, tons of magazines, diaper rash ointment, little bottles to hold breast milk, a weekly journal, a pacifier, coupons and more!!! The thing was heavy, and it was fun to go through.

So my next appointment was supposed to be in 4 weeks, but that is Easter week, and the doc isn't taking patients that week, so we scheduled it for just short of 5 weeks away. That was the only time they had a morning appointment and Mitch really wants to go to as many appointments as possible. He was so adorable and happy, and has been a great husband lately!

I'll have another ultrasound then, because I did have a cyst on my left ovary. The doc says it's probably nothing to worry about, and that by the looks of it, it should go away on it's own. So we'll check it out next time, then proceed from there. He reassured us it was nothing to worry about, so I'm not gonna worry unless I have to!

Anyhoo, I am gonna get this posted for you all!!! Sorry it took me SOOO long!!! Thanks for your sweet comments! :o)


  1. Well I'll be darned if that isn't the cutest "turd" I've ever seen! Congratulations!

  2. OMG! I'm so excited for you! It makes it even more real when you get that first ultrasound pic! I know mine looked like a little dot, but we saw her heartbeat and I knew it was real, even though I had no nausia at all, I knew she was there. At least you have symptoms, even though they are crappy, it's really good to just know! :-)

  3. Sounds like you have a great doctor. And that goody bag?!? How awesome! Hopefully your 'everytime-but-the-morning' sickness goes away soon!

  4. PHEW! You're okay! I'm sorry that you've been sick, but it's all worth it, huh? Your doctor sounds like he has a sense of humor, that's so good! When do you find out what you are having? And when is the due date? And thanks for your e-mail it made me laugh!
