Doctor’s Appointment

I had an appointment with my doctor today. I was looking forward to it because I have been feeling a little disconnected and worried that this whole pregnancy thing wasn’t really true. Well, she found a heartbeat, and since it was below my belly button, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t mine. Of course, as long as it is inside my body it is mine, right? So I guess I now have two hearts. No wonder I’m so nice.

Jeff came to the appointment with me. When he heard the heartbeat he teared up a little. I can relate. I did the same thing when I heard it for the first time.

When she was listening to the heart beat, the doctor also said that she heard the baby kick. I heard what she was talking about, but I don’t think I would have recognized it as a kick. I sure didn’t feel anything.

They weighed me. I didn’t even gain one pound. The truth is, though, the clothes I was wearing today are lighter weight than what I wore last month, so I probably did gain a little. Next month I’ll wear heavier clothes, and then they’ll get mad at me for gaining too much weight.

So I guess I am more or less officially past the risky time (nearly 13 weeks), so I guess I don’t have to keep the pregnancy a secret anymore.

  1. I’m glad you had your appt. today. It’s always nice to have that reassurance to get you thru one more month. I loved my dr visits for that reason. pretty soon you’ll feel the baby move and then you’ll feel pregnant.

  2. Oh Noelle! I am just so happy for you. First of all, YAY on hearing babys heart beat, and YAY that you are past 12 weeks! Okay – once your belly starts to grow, I have some cute maternity stuff for ya. Comfy jeans (LOVED them when I was preggo) and some simple plain tshirts that aren’t over the top “trying to look hot with a big belly”. lol.. I never did get into all that jazzy maternity stuff. I was pretty simple. So let me know if you want to borrow something when your little one starts stretching that tiny tummy of yours!!

  3. That is so exciting that you heard the heartbeat!! I am so happy for you guys. And the best place for maternity clothes is old navy–they have great sales online. My advice–get some maternity yoga pants. I think I wore them almost every day for the last month!
