Milestone today!

I am approximately 13 weeks and 2 days pregnant. I had an appointment with the OB today. It was actually my first “regular” pre-natal visit (not counting my appointment with Maternal Fetal Medicine — the high-risk pregnancy doctors).

After my weight and blood pressure were taken, I went over my medical history with the doctor, then she did an external exam, and we got to hear the baby’s heart beat through the Doppler! It was an amazing experience. It was strong — 160 beats per minute.

I had been a little worried about how the baby was  doing. I’m not really sure when I’m “supposed” to start showing, as I don’t really think I am yet, and a lot of my earlier pregnancy symptoms were going away (though I know that is also a sign of moving from the first to the second trimester). So, it was reassuring to hear Baby’s strong heart beat.

Also, LOTS of blood drawn. No fun. But at least I warned them ahead of time about my tendency to pass out, and they let me lie down from the get-go.

Next appointment is in late June!
