It went really well Smile I love my doctor, she is so nice. I am actually due July 6th 2008 (a day out from the online calculators).
She also wrote on her notes about my sciatica and said i'd probably get moved later on in my pregnancy, but they probably won't do anything yet. yay! She also presribed me some more folic acid and some eczema cream as my backs been really itchy since becoming pregnant. she also presribed me some bath oil to use aswell, which was great.
I need to make an appointment to see the midwife in a months time if i haven't heard from then before then because that's when my first scan should be.
she didn't take my blood pressure, just sent the notes off from my last pregnancy to the hospital, so it wasn't a long visit.
on some sad news. i found out an old friend of mine died last night. they think she had a epileptic fit and drowned in the bath. they're going to find out more by tomorrow. i am just in shock. she was only 17 years old Sad

i'm just glad i waited long enough to get the doctor i liked. last time when i was pregnant with william i got a really nasty snooty lady who just looked down on me. it really made that appointment stressful
