On Tuesday I had my first appointment with my new OB/GYN practice and was a bit frustrated because if I had stayed with my previous practice... I would have seen by baby already... but alas I had to switch... the hospital I would have had to deliver at is way to far away and this hospital is literally 5-15 minutes depending on traffic... but everything depends on traffic I live in Atlanta... Anyway back to the story... I went in to this new practice for the first appointment knowing that I would talk to the Doctor learn more about the practice etc. etc. This first appt. was a typical exam, urine test, blood test, and all the lovely things that happen at a GYN appointment. BUT... while talking to the doctor I told her how I was so anxious to hear my baby's heartbeat... that I understood that the Ultrasound would have to be scheduled for later but that if there was any way possible on God's green earth to let me hear that whooshing sound... that I would be forever grateful. Well lo and behold... The doctor comes in with a portable Ultrasound machine... and said well I don't know if we will be able to see anything but SHE FOUND A PEANUT.... well really she found my little baby and in the middle of the little peanut was the little flicker.... OH JOY for that little flicker... really now I am so happy... I couldn't really get excited about being pregnant because I wasn't positively sure because I am a big fat worrier and the anxiety 'bout killed me... But OH BABY... I saw my baby.
The other wonderful thing is that my sweet doctor did not charge me... because right now we are paying Out of pocket and I had to work a whole day to pay for that Exam but OH BABY... I saw my baby.
