Woo! Saw the doctor. Ok, I suppose it's not quite woo worthy, but it was way better than my last ultrasound.
I have no pictures to show for it... pffft. But They measured my pumpkin seed at 5 weeks and 6 days, which is really close to where I thought I would be. So that's excellent. And there was a heartbeat! Ha :) The downside was that it was 100 beats per minute, which is ok but not great. It's within range that is normal enough for how far along I am, but it wasn't awe inspiring. But the good news is that the Doc wasn't too worried and I go back in 11 days for another ultrasound and my first real visit.
In any case, I'm very encouraged and I can rest a little easier. However, I'm not really inspired to tell anyone yet. LAME. I'm so ready to spill this news but I don't want to have the awkward conversations yet.
The other interesting bit about my appointment was that they gave me samples of prenatal vitamins. 8 types and 41 days worth! And they are all prescription. That's sort of insane to me. I'm already taking a prenatal vitamin with DHA plus extra folic acid so I'm not sure why I care except maybe these would be less expensive? I suppose I'll take these, that's almost 6 weeks worth, not bad.
Huh, I suppose I should modify my "days pregnant" and "days to go"... we'll run with the 5 weeks and 6 days measurement.
Days Pregnant: 41
Days to go: 239
