Today went well, I went to my doctor and the first thing they did was the ultrasound. I was measuring 7 weeks 4 days (at first she said 6 weeks so I freaked) and I should be 8 weeks 3 days according to my LMP, so my due date is correct at 12/13/13. Strong little heartbeat!! I am allowed to gain 15 pounds this pregnancy. Due to my last pregnancy having GD, they did my glucose test today. I also had my pap done. Also, due to my last daughter being born prematurely, beginning at week 16 (right around my birthday...boo) I have to start getting a shot every week to help keep me pregnant. All in all, I am very high risk, but still way excited.

I'm glad your appointment went well!  It is so very exciting to see/hear the heartbeat for the first time.  No fun about the shots, but I'm so glad they are being very proactive with your prenatal care.
