12 week Check-up

So, I had my 2nd doctors appointment today. I'm now 12weeks and 4 days preggers. My doctors appointment was scheduled for 9:00 am and I was there at 8:55 sharp. I barely even sat down and the nice little lady called my name to bring me back. "Wow, that was quick." I said. Boy did I speak to soon. She took me back to the room...the one with the stirrups for your feet in it. Now, I didn't have an exam or anything so I'm guessing they just stick you in that room every so often so you can get use to the contraption. It's almost daunting. They should put a sign on it that reads: Just You Wait! But, anyway. So I was sitting here in this room flipping through a magazine waiting for my doctor to come. And then I got finished with that one, and started on another, and another, get my point. I thought, next time I'll bring a novel, I've always wanted to read Grapes of Wrath a second time. So, long story short I was in the room for an entire hour, but on the bright side, I got a 10min. nap in.
When he finally came in, he went through my blood work from the last visit. Everything checked out good...except my Vitamin D levels. A good reading is 60, I'm at 10. Eek! So, now I get to choke down a tablespoon of cod liver oil everyday. Not tasty. And then right before he left, he said "Oh yea, I gotta hear the heartbeat." How could he forget that? This is what I've been waiting for for 4 weeks now. So, I got to hear the heartbeat. It was all kind of rushed, but I heard it and it was beautiful.
Waiting in the doctors office: 1hour
Actul appointment with the doctor: 5min.
Hearing your baby's heartbeat for the first time: Priceless!

...thanks for reading...

I am so excited for you, this baby will be gorgeous, I remember that beautiful little girl who stole my heart. I loved to go to your house and play with you, or steal you when I could. The next few months will have lots of changes, cherish them all.
