Hello 2T and MFM visit :-)

Hello, hello 2T...it is soooo nice to meet you!!!

Today was my first MFM visit and all went well. The u/s tech came in first and I was treated to an abdominal instead of vaginal u/s. Sweet! The first thing I saw (after the hb) was what looked like a little hand swatting at the transducer. The u/s tech at one point said, "Wow, you can actually see all four chambers of the heart right now" and also showed me the stomach and printed a picture showing the toes of one foot, a hand, and the rest of the body for me to keep.

CRL 7.76cm, hb 150bmp, GA 13w6d, new EDD 3/13/12 (nurse later said 3/8/12 but wanted to keep the 13th, I think 11th)

Next up was meeting the MFM. He seems nice. I briefly told him my history and that I'm at risk for incompetent cervix and PTL. He immediately said he wanted me back in 2 weeks to check the cervix.

I was also told that the gender check wouldn't be until 20 weeks. Fine by me. DH wants to know and has offered to buy me a new sewing machine and dryer as well as spend at least one whole day completely together by ourselves (meaning no in-laws or doing farm stuff) during his Christmas break. So enticing! I might change from team green to yellow. LOL, if I wait to agree I wonder if he'll sweeten the pot. I'm rotten! :smileywink:

After that was the nurse visit and gathering information. She also gave me some magazines and a pregnancy planner.

Unfortunately I have a cold right now so after that appointment I went to my GP to double check it wasn't anything more than that.

I'm still on the Zofran for m/s and am looking forward to the end of m/s. On Monday DH fixed eggs for breakfast and I couldn't hold them down. Boo.

Julia, there has been no mention of measuring the head diameter. Interesting. It was pretty amazing looking at the four chambers of the heart.

Aww, Diane. That is so sweet of you. I think of you often and miss you. I hope all is well and you'll soon have a sticky BFP.
