We had our first prenatal visit yesterday! Yay! It was very exciting/relieving/nerve-wracking/AMAZING.
My family doctor recommended an OB/GYN in North Scottsdale, and I am in love! The office is beautiful, the staff is friendly, their philosophy is completely in line with our needs and goals, and they even have a midwife on staff! I was really nervous for this appointment, as it was very last minute due to a scare we had on Monday night, but they made my appointment same day and worked to calm our fears. We had our first ultrasound:
They confirmed that my due date is actually April 6, and that I am 7 weeks today! I was a little sad to not be as far along as I had thought (or further), but my sadness was quickly replaced by relief and amazement when I saw the baby's heartbeat on the screen. His heart is very strong, 140 bpm, and he is currently the size of blueberry!
Now you may or may not have noticed my assumption that this baby is a boy.... Casey and I have this feeling that this baby is a boy and until proven otherwise, we shall continue referring to the baby as a he. (If we're completely wrong, sorry future daughter, we'll love you just the same)!
And now I will leave you with my first belly pic:
No bump yet, just some (unpleasant) bloat....
