First Doctor's Appointment - 8 Weeks

8 Weeks

We had our first doctor appointment yesterday. It was fun seeing our favorite doctor. Felt like old times. He even met Jackson.

I thought for sure we’d get some kind of ultrasound. Nothing. Doctor said it’s still too early. He also said he gets mad when the call center schedules patients early. Thinks the first appointment should be around 10 weeks so everything can be done. Soooo, we go in next Wednesday for an ultrasound. I told him I’m nervous because so many people around me are having such a hard time. He told me that I don’t seem to have a hard time getting pregnant, so I shouldn’t worry. OK then. He is very matter of fact.  

I had blood work done and had to pee in a cup. My test results keep coming in. Everything is NORMAL. Even with those fabulous hives that popped up last week. I even had them do a thyroid test because I have been FREEZING cold, but NORMAL.

I have actually been feeling pretty good the past four days. Today my stomach is giving me some troubles but I keep eating, hoping that will help.  I started having REAL ginger ale every single day (the natural kind that has all the chunks swimming at the bottom). It seems to work. However, Jackson always wants some. I think I started a bad habit because he thinks it’s beer.

I also started oil pulling. I have no idea if this is doing anything, but I have read it helps and I haven’t felt as bad as I did last week yet (knock on wood).  

It has also gotten a little warmer outside and I have gone on a few walks. WOW. WOW. WOW. I totally feel like a new person. It has been WAY TOO LONG.

So that’s where we’re at.
