Heartbeat

So, the appt Wed went fine, other than the fact that my appt was at 2:15 and they didn't take me in until 3. I was livid. I am horribly impatient anyway, but when you are trying to not take any time off work and just use the hour you are allowed for lunch, oooohhhh stressful. Gary came along. Once the doc got in there it was fine. Very quick. It's amazing what a difference a few weeks make, the baby totally looks like a baby now, I can see it's little head and nose. The doctor said I'm somewhere between 9-10 weeks and I am due April 22. I still thought I was further along, but oh well, I'll be further along in no time. I got back in 2 weeks for another appointment and in 3 weeks I get that First Scan test done that checks for downs, etc.

Tonight we are meeting a reporter from the Akron paper. I am doing a relay at the Akron marathon with 4 other pregnant ladies, they want to do an article on us. My 5 mins of fame! Exciting.

That's very cool about the prego race! OMG, each time this summer I went to an appt, I waited at LEAST 45 min. I was so pissed. I was just thinking at least I don't have a child with me! I can't imagine! But yes, trying to do it on the lunch hour is so annoying, and then you get in there and its tops 10 minutes. Oh man. I could write a post on that.

Oh yeah, it only gets more frustrating when you're just there to pee in a cup, weigh in, and reassure the doc that you aren't in premature labor and you have to wait an hour for less than 5 min. of face time. But then, you eventually get to be that woman delivering at some "inconvenient" time, causing everyone else's appointments to back up -- so ha!
