I had my second appointment this morning and everything went well. My mom went with me to hear the heartbeat and Bert had class so he couldn’t make it.
I weighed and for those of you who just knew I had gained weight, my husband and mother, you were right. I am up 1.4lbs. Congratulations! You suck. :)
We got to hear the heartbeat on the doppler and the heart rate was 155. Now, we need to discuss the location of this heartbeat.
Please note the location of the vagina in the picture above. The nurse couldn’t find the heartbeat so she kept going lower and lower until she was all up in my personal space, if you know what I mean. She might as well have violated me. She found the heartbeat and in my opinion the baby was ridiculously low, like growing inside my vagina. This could cause problems. I think.
So either my baby is growing inside my va-jay-jay, or it has acquired it’s own heartbeat. Lovely.
I showed up at my appointment with my list in hand! Now if you know me in real life then you know I’m a hypochondriac. If you don’t – this is me admitting it.
My mother was totally embarrassed when I whipped out the Blackberry and read the doctor my list of “ailments” as I like to call them. He laughed and I told him that I had to tell somebody because my husband wouldn’t let me call and tell him I was having a heart attack anymore. I know. He’s rude.
Let’s go over the list:
- chest pain
- left arm pain
- sore throat
- LLQ pain – left lower quadrant pain – I abbreviated on the list!
So apparently I’m pregnant! Who knew. And I’m going to live. And I won’t die of a heart attack. Please, you don’t have to worry, but thanks for the concern!
We can find out the sex of the baby at the end of October! Yay!
Also we have to decide if we want the Quad4/AFP test done. It’s a prescreen that tells you the odds of having a child with a birth defect. I need opinions. Did anyone do this?? I’m thinking it will cause unnecessary stress. Let me know what you think!
