First Prenatal Appointment

I had my 8 week pre-natal appointment yesterday and everything went great. It was my first visit to the Dr. since I found out I was pregnant. Jake and I had to fill out a long "family history" questionnaire and she went over all the things I should and shouldn't be doing/eating/drinking while I'm pregnant. They also did a pregnancy test and of course it came back positive. :-) She did an exam and said that I was right where I should be for being 8 weeks pregnant. She also prescribed an ultrasound for me for this coming week, just to make sure there's only one little peanut growing inside of me. Since I was on clomid, there's a slight increase in multiples so she just wants to make sure. While she was doing my exam, she said it only felt like one, but she wants me to have an ultrasound just to make sure. So I'll get to see my little peanut for the first time on Monday!! :-) My appt. is at 4:00 in the afternoon. I'm excited to get to see him/her.

My next Dr. appt. will be on April 12th, (my 30th birthday) and at that appt. we'll get to hear the heartbeat! So I'm super excited about that!

So I'll let you all know how the ultrasound goes on Monday and hopefully I'll get a picture or two to share with you guys. :-)

Hope you're all having a great weekend and enjoying some beautiful weather. Its sunny and 60 degrees here in St. Louis today! A perfect day for some Spring cleaning with the windows open.
