Dec. 9, 16 wks.
This was a pretty uneventful appointment,
though it did take longer than the others
because I switched doctor's so they did
the whole family/medical history thing again.
And then we waited a long time for the doctor
himself to show up. We really like Dr. Lawrence.
He's the doctor who handled my miscarriage
and I just thought he was a really genuine,
sincere, and caring doctor. And we're happy
to be seeing him again under better circumstances.
The baby positioned itself perfectly for
the doctor to find it's heartbeat. The doctor
didn't even have to search. Just set the
doppler in the middle under my belly button
and there it was. Good baby!
I did decide to do the prenatal screening.
The nurse said that if there were any "bad"
results that I would hear from them via
a phone call in 2-3 days. Otherwise she
said we'd just get a letter 3 weeks from
now along with the results of the cystic
fibrosis screening I also did. I feel good
about my decision and I'm sure everything
will be normal when the results come out.
He said because I'm only 26 that an amnio
should never need to be considered.
The next appointment is January 8th, 10am,
at 20 weeks. It's an ultrasound that will
hopefully tell us whether we are having
a boy or a girl. Let's see if the baby cooperates.
