I'm thrilled that I finally got my intake/information appt scheduled. After this one I'll be assigned to the actual ob/midwife clinic where I get seen throughout the pregnancy. It makes it feel more official. I'm very stoked for this because so far it feels like some far off thing. I've never been pregnant at this time of year before which might be part of what adds to the illusionary feeling.

It went well. It was just the paper work and the lab work up. 8 vials of blood and a urine sample along with enough paperwork that I felt like I was buying my house all over again! They changed the way the system on post works again though, so I don't even have an initial physical exam until Sep 28th, and *after* that I'll get sent over to the OB/GYNs. I'm a little unsettled that I don't get sent to the people who will handle my pregnancy until I'm in my 2nd trimester, but I guess that's the military for you :/

Good point. Military likes to change things around, don't they? At least you have the gallon of blood donation out of the way. ;)
