5 weeks; 5 days
I went for my first Prenatal visit today.
I was there 2 hours! Holy Crap, I know, right? I wanted to take a nap (and I still want to take a nap)!
The greatest thing is my Hubs got to spend those hours with DD, I heard they went for Ice Cream.
During my visit:
I got to weigh (I lost another pound, I am guessing due to sleeping a lot), pee in a cup, blood pressure, pulse, and wait.
I think I sat in the Office forever it seemed. I don’t even know how long I sat there.
It must have been pretty long if they kept telling me they were sorry and so forth.
Finally the Nurse Practitioner came in, got the history of my family and about me. Nothings really changed since 5 yrs ago, other than I have a daughter, but the girl was super nice. Even when her laptop died and we had to go over everything again.
Then they moved me to a room, where the Dr, Nurse Practitioner and another lady had to watch over for my pap. That made me nervous to say the least. I kept wiggling my toes and the Dr was laughing, she said: “You’re wiggling your toes makes me laugh”. I returned with: “It’s my impatient toes”. She didn’t laugh so much, oops?
She wants me to start taking another Prenatal Vitamin, and she prescribed some nausea medicine just in case I got nauseous, which I haven’t so far. We shall see. They wanted me to come in Friday, but with open house for DD I postponed till Tuesday, that way DD will be in school. So, Tuesday I get to see the Jelly Bean I think I will take my Grandmother with me, just for support, and so she can be a part of this journey.
When I was checking out, they wanted me to go across the street to get blood work done, and the place had locked its doors! The sign said 8-5 and I got there 5mins till 5, and Closed! Frustrating to say the less, because maybe if my appointment was a little rushed I would have got there in time. So, now I get to go tomorrow, with a 4 yr old, maybe I will wait till after her nap
Now I say, it is time for a nap. This Momma is tired.
I hope all of you are having a wonderful day!
