10 weeks & first visit with midwife

Hi, my name is Melinda. First, I'd like to thank everyone who has posted here over the past year. I've received much inspiration, comfort and information from your discussions on this board during my TTC journey.


Now I’ve finally made it! My EDD is Aug. 10, and I had my first prenatal appointment with my midwife earlier this week. I also saw the baby’s heartbeat on u/s at my RE’s two weeks ago, so I’m hopeful that things are going well. I’m really just looking forward to my nausea and tiredness, etc. going away in a few weeks, so I can really enjoy being pregnant.
This will be my second child and I’m a single mother by choice this time around. Oh, almost forgot to mention, I’ll turn 43 right after the baby’s born.
Best wishes to all!
Melinda
