12 week appointment

Yesterday we went to our 12 week appointment for the baby.  Brian went with me to this one.  It was our first appointment with the nurse practitioner and seemed important enough for him to go.  She talked a bit about the different testing and screenings available.  She did an exam and then we listened to the heartbeat.  It came in at 170 beats per minute.  I had found it at home with the doppler a few days before so it wasn’t such a big deal.  It was really nice to have the confirmation that all is well and on track.  I go back again at 16 weeks and then we have our first ultrasound at 19 weeks.  It can’t come soon enough!

After our appointment we met our potential doula for dinner.  I say potential because we haven’t signed a contract with her yet.  She came highly recommended from a friend (thanks Melinda!).  We both really liked her.  She is a wealth of information and very easy to talk too.  We’re going to decide this weekend for sure but I hope we get to work with her!

That’s about it for now.  I’m mulling over my goals for the New Year.  Hope you have a great one!
