12 week appointment
Well it was my second doctors appointment 7/30/08 and it went well! Darren and my doc became friends at my first appointment so he had to come back to this one to look at the chip in his desk. (Since Darren's a wood worker he wants to see if its fixable.) But before that we got to listen to the heart beat for the first time! Wow talk about butterflies in my tummy listening to that. There was only 1 baby beat so I'm kind of releived it's not triplets. Then while Darren was with the doc looking at his desk I had to get my blood drawn, lucky for me after jabbing in my arm for 5 mins she couldn't get any blood! She asked if I was sick or had a low blood count, but I said no I'm totally normal for some reason my veins are just always hard for nurses. So after searching my other arm and not even finding a vein she had to stick me again in my right arm. Ouch I hate getting blood drawn and after passing out this morning when I woke up this was not going well. I got really dizzy when she finally started drawing blood even though I've never watched or seen a needle. But all in all I made it through. Darren is coming back again with me to my next 16 week appt so he can touch up the doc's desk. And for Darren coming back again the doc said he'd do an ultra sound and we might be able to find out the sex! Plus I don't think he's going to charge us because Darren offered to fix the desk for free.
Oh by the way, everyone needs to check out Brittney's blog, she's finally up and running with new posts and pics!
