First Visit with the Dr

Well, Friday afternoon I had my first visit with the Doctor. I was a little surprised to see he was an older black guy (especially since he has a white wife in the birthplace of the KKK, but he's a really nice guy and really listened to me and my concerns. He told me my Prenatal Vitamins didn't have enough Folic Acid (One A Day Womens'), so I picked up a supplement to uh, supplement my current pills.

He did a full exam, then checked the size of my uterus (if it's TMI, too damn bad ;-)), and said it was "a good size." I don't really know what to make of that. I guess I'll find out tomorrow when I go for my ultrasound! He then pulled out his doppler, and I got to hear the baby's heartbeat (which was between 130-160 BPM). He had to work to find it, because the baby kept moving around.

My next appointment is October 29, with the midwife/NP.

I'm so glad you decided to see a doctor in TN instead of waiting to go in Erie:) Makes me feel better. Sorry you've been so sick. We should meet up together soon! I've got some time to plan off, let me know when would be good for you!
