4th Dr.’s Appointment

I had my 12 week appointment at my Dr.’s office on Monday December 13th.  Dan was in Vail on a ski trip so I went alone but since it was only 3 days after my fantastic ultrasound, I had no worries that everything would be just fine.  It was just a routine appointment, checked my weight, and my vitals (gained about 3 pounds since I found out, which is right on track) but my blood pressure was a little high for me.  I like to think that I take very good care of myself.  I eat well, and exercise and I’ve never had a blood pressure reading higher than 120/60 but it was around 130/70 so I was a little put off.  I figured it was fine and even though I had just seen the baby a few days before, my nerves still got the best of me.  After the nurse took my vitals she used the doppler device to listen to the baby’s heart beat and it was 158, another normal reading.  As soon as I heard that heart beat I felt my entire body relax, my heart stopped pounding and I’m sure my blood pressure went down.  The Dr. did her exam and told me that she could feel the top of my uterus low in my belly which was exactly where it should be! 

12 weeks pregnant and my little baby bump!

I was scheduled to come back in 4 weeks for my 16 week appointment, and then 2 weeks later for our anatomy ultrasound to find out the sex!!!!!!
