Since Geoff and I decided we wanted to go to a different hospital when the time comes, we needed to find another doctor. I found one at a clinic a few blocks from our house, and I had my first appointment with her yesterday.
I think it went really well! She seems to be really focused on nutrition, which is something that is really important to me. She said that since I already did all the blood and urine tests a few weeks ago that she would not repeat them, and she didn’t even have to do a pelvic exam since I had my medical records sent over from my last doctor.
We basically just talked about certain things I had questions about. For example, Geoff and I play in a sand volleyball league twice a week. We are in the “C” league, which is basically just messing around and playing for fun, nothing serious. I asked if I could continue to play, since I barely break a sweat when I play. Her recommendation was to finish up the session then the take a break from playing until the end of my pregnancy.
I also had a lot of nutrition questions, and she pointed me in the direction of a couple different books. More on that when I’ve had a chance to pick them up and take a look at them.
To finish up we set up my next few appointments, including my first ultrasound next week! I’m so excited!! I’m not exactly sure what to expect, but I hope we are able to hear the baby’s heartbeat and maybe even see something (it is now the size of a blueberry).
When did you have your first ultrasound? What were you able to see/hear?
