I'm normal

Well, I know that's a matter of opinion, but I'm now a normal OB/GYN patient. On Friday I will have a plain, old Dr's appointment. I'll give my medical history, let them draw some blood. But there won't be a dildo cam in sight! Nope, just a normal, first OB appointment.

When the nurse told me they would draw blood to confirm the pregnancy, I thought about offering to bring her in my pretty little ultrasound picture, but didn't want her to think I was sassy. At least not yet. There's plenty of time for them to get to know me before September!

I can't believe I'm almost nine weeks already. J and I are talking about the NT scan. I think we're both on the same page, but I'm interested to see what my new doc thinks about it as well. In a singleton pregnancy, it would be a no-brainer. But my understanding in multiple pregnancies is that the blood work portion of the screening really isn't accurate, so I don't know if it's worth going through with any of the testing.

We'll see.

Congratulations, hon!

BTW, you're not normal... you're extraordinary!

congrats mama!! and the NT scan was one of my fave u/s's. The babies will be small enough to see them fully but you will see them zipping around. So if insurance covers it and you want a chance to look at them, I would go for it :)

Normal is in the eye of the beholder. ;-)
