As promised... yesterday's appointment:)
Dr. S is fantastic so far. She is so sweet and on top of things, which surprised me a little. She was very comfortable and personal... almost like a mother. Professional, but in a very relaxed and respectable way.
We went throgh my history again and it was so nice to see the excitement on her face when she realized it hadn't taken much time to get pregnant since I'd last seen her. She kept saying "I'm so happy for you." We chatted about vaginas and nipples and then she did an exam (but not before walking in on me naked while changing into the worlds hugest paper gown with a 20 foot belt attached. LOL, what do you do with that?!?!) She poked, she prodded, she smashed my girls so far inward that I think they inverted and poppped back out like one of those suction cup toys from the candy machines. But then she talked about Golden Retrievers, which, frannkly, sold me and made me forget about my aching cha chis.
So here's where it gets exciting. After I changed back into my clothes, she returned with a GIFT BAG full of knocked up goodies! And do you know that this woman is SO sweet that she offerred me her personal copy of What to Expect When You're Expecting???!!! I almost lied and said I didn't already have it because it was so sweet of her to offer. I've never heard of a doctor offerring anything from any sort of personal any collection.
I also found a pamphlet on the new birthing center at our hospital that makes it sound like Club Med, a la Logan. Umm, maybe I should just leave it at Club Med. I'm free on Saturday... maybe I'll book a room for the night.
So I have a size and date ultrasound on Thursday where I pray to God we will see the heartbeat. We absolutely should by that point in the pregnancy, so no flicker can only mean the worst. Please pray for a strong flicker.
After Thursday, my next appointment is June 2nd and then again when I get back from my tour de June.
Stick, baby, stick!!
