OB appointment for pregnancy

Sorry it took me so long...i have been running around all day long. The appointment today was actually pretty boring. They weighed me and I met with the doctor in her office. She asked me a few questions, and gave me a list of medications I could take since I have a cold....and that was pretty much it.

I go back monday to talk to the nurse and do all the history on me and my boyfriend and also to get my prenatal blood work done.

Then I have another appointment set up for April 9th for the first ob appointment and to get the first ultrasound done.

Get used to the boring appointments, most of them will be like that. The ultrasound appointments are really cool! And hearing the heartbeat - the rest (like the pap, etc) I could totally do without!

Well technically this is my second pregnancy, becuase I had a miscarriage due to a blighted ovum. But this will be my first kid.
