Yesterday was my first appointment. For this baby I have decided to change hospitals and dr's to a better one hospital (mary Birch) and a high risk dr. in San Diego.
It is an hour from my house...so an all day affair basically.
Did the ultrasound first and I saw baby with heartbeat. Nice and strong. My calculations put me at 8 weeks 1 day, they put me at 8 weeks 3 days.
Then on to the new Dr. Very thorough. Asked and checked everything. Really liked him. Oh...and my blood pressure, a bit high. He wanted it retested when i lie down for 5 minutes. Better 135 over 75.
So, all good. Do need to watch my pressure though. Eat no salt and all veges and plain chicken.
So, I am happy. This is real.
Oh and bonus...my favorite mall is like 5 minutes from the hospital and dr.
Asking the MC rate at my age and with the nice heartbeat and good ultrasound, 5%.
Ill have the CVS after around the 11th of January.
One sign, I suppose. I know I have many more to go through.
