3w3d - Made my first doctor's appointments!

I found a new doctor that comes highly recommended from some of the ladies at work (I didn't tell them why I needed a new doc....just that I needed one). I called to make my first appointment today and was told that the first step is a "group prenatal appointment". Which basically means they will put me with some other women who just found out they're pregnant and tell us the basics that we'll need to know. I was told it is a 90-minute session, so hopefully we'll get some good info. After that I go to the lab and get some bloodwork and stuff done (yuck!). That appointment is on November 13th, which will put me at 7 wks. I know that is pretty typical, but it just seems like such a long time to wait before even seeing anyone or having bloodwork done. I'll be nervous until then....ok, I'll probably be nervous through the whole pregnancy, but still.

The following week, on November 20th I have an appointment with the nurse practitioner. I assume I will have an exam, maybe an ultrasound. The receptionist I spoke with didn't seem to know and told me to ask at my prenatal education appointment...so I guess that's what I'll do.

I'm still feeling good today. Tired, sore, and hungry. But no sign of morning sickness yet *knock on wood*. I hope it stays that way. I think my boobs might be trying to get sore...or I'm making them that way by squeezing them all the time to see how they feel. :)

I hope the next couple weeks go by quickly and that BabyBee keeps growing like crazy in there until the first time I get to see him/her!

Good Luck with your appointments Bee. I hope you get all the answers you are looking for. I totally understand about the nervousness. At least we all have eachother to vent to for now :)

I am just so excited for you hun! I can't wait to hear all about your appointments. And I know how you feel, that 1st appointment feels like forever away, mine wasn't until 9 weeks :( But that way at the u/s you'll see more of what resembles a baby instead of a blob, lol.
