1st Prenatal Appointment

I had my first prenatal appointment yesterday. It was pretty uneventful. I took another pee test to confirm the home pregnancy test results, and no surprise there- it was positive. It was a little reassuring to have a doctor confirm the exciting news though.

I met Dr. Peppy and really liked him. I was somewhat nervous because I have never been to a male OBGYN but he didn’t creep me out. In fact, he was really nice and laid back, I guess we will see how it goes when he “goes down on me”! He made me laugh when he referred to being pregnant as a condition and then proceeded to go over all of the things I can & can’t do anymore, it seemed like the list was never ending.

I’m not really sure when I had my last period so he used my last known period which was in June and when my July period should have been and came up with a couple of estimated due dates (EDD). If I conceived after my June period my EDD is 3/20/10 which will be our 1st wedding anniversary, and if I conceived after my July period my EDD is 4/20/10 which is Aaron’s birthday. Obviously, these dates are not 100% accurate but it gives us an idea.

I go back on 8/26 for our 1st ultrasound to confirm a delivery date and to hear the baby’s heartbeat. Aaron and I are beyond excited and we are praying for a healthy baby and a smooth pregnancy.
